Error 500 from on-page text links, Joomla 1.5.22

I first posted this in some old topic with similar issue. But it seems hard to get any visitors there.

I'm getting error 500 from on page text links. Main Menu, Top Menu and banner links are working perfectly. SEO friendly links are enabled. Running Joomla 1.5.22

The error links look like this 'http://www.mydomain.org/component/content/64.html',

when I change any link to 'http://www.mydomain.org/home/64.html' it starts working, but showing the page number rather than the article name. I don't know how to make them show the actual page name in SEO friendly format like all other links.

I'm not an advanced user. I don't know php or programming, it will be hard for me to understand in professional language. Please word it in a simple way.

Thank you

Not sure exactly whats happening sicne I can't see your site, but my guess is it is the SEF urls.
Can have lots of problems there :)
1 - make sure your htaccess.txt file is renamed to .htaccess
2 - make sure mod-rewrite is ON in global configuration
3 - if that still doesn't work there may be some editing needing done in the .htacccess depending on where on your server Joomla! is installed, but hopefully 1 and 2 can fix the problem!
Hope that helps!

Hi Jon

Thank you for a quick response.
The global config screen shot attached attached. SEF URLs enabled, mod_rewrite enabled

I tried to rename the htaccess.txt to .htaccess
The front page doesn't open. Shows error 500. Other pages work as before. On page text links deliver error 500, corrected links show as a number, not an article name.

You help is appreciated.

I visited your site just to see what was happening from the front - looks like you've got it figured out?

No, I found the way to change links to make pages show up. But it doesn't fix the problem.

When I'm getting an error 500, the link looks like this:
'http://www.mydomain.org/component/content/64.html'

note the /component/content/ part. That leads to nowhere, that is why pages are not displayed.

I'm changing those links to:
'http://www.mydomain.org/home/64.html'

note /component/content/ is replaced by /home/.
The pages open after I do that. However, 64 in this case is a numerical order of the article, not the article title, which I'd rather see in the browser line. And there is no /component/content/ folder or /home/ folder in my file structure. have no idea where these things are coming from.

In other words, I want to see
'http://www.mydomain.org/article-title.html' instead of all that garbage that Joomla delivers.
Thank you.

Hello,
I'm also new to joomla and created the page for the company I'm starting (http://www.atslogs.net).

I'm getting the 500 error 'sometimes', not always. I tried to find out if it's related to something, but no success. When it appears, I hit 'refresh' and it works.

In the forum I followed these suggestions:
- changed the template to afterburner from rockettheme (it's supposed to be a simple/fast one)
- disable mootools
- enable cache in global config and the plugin
- I also contacted my shared hosting provider (godaddy) because a forum suggested that, the answer from godaddy was that probably fastcgi was causing the issue, they uninstall it from the server, but the problem is still there.

- Right now I'm learning how to debug my site (debuggin is turned on), and I was able to get a snapshot of the error with the debugging (see attachement)

Can you please let me know if this is something related to my joomla installation/extensions or has something to do with godaddy, another forum suggested to moved to a virtual dedicated server, but this will be more expensive.

Thanks in advance

Just came across this post while researching a similar issue via Google.
Thought it may be useful to link to a post I made a while back reporting similar issues.

http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?p=2374597

PS: Not sure why this is in the 1.0 forum - I'll try and get someone to move it across to a 1.5 forum.

For anyone else experiencing this problem, there is a potential workaround in the other thread I referenced above.

Hi
If I do not have a problem with links indexed in the search results?
Thanks for your help
