Need help with SEO and .htaccess - 1and1

Post by hcparalegals » Wed Oct 10, 2007 3:22 pm

Hello guys,
I get the following error message
Error 500 - Internal server error An internal server error has occured!
Please try again later.
when I enable  Search Engine Friendly URLs to YES and  Use Apache mod_rewrite to YES. Here is my .htaccess code (see below) I use 1and1 as my host. I am pretty sure I have something in my .htaccss file that is preventing me from using  SEO feature. Can anyone help me out please? Thank you.

Andriy

Check with your webhost whether or not they support mod rewrite.

I found my own mistake. Since my Joomla is not in a root / directory, all i needed to do is to uncomment this line. my .htaccess is in root folder as it effecting all the sub folders where my Joomla installation resides. Cheers!

Guess what? You also need to do this if the site is in the root folder. I am using 1and1 on a site and this topic helped me to get it to work right. Thanks

You are welcome. Funny part is that I called tech support which is outsourced to India and I asked the techy to help me with .htacess and he told me to create php.ini file, which doesn't even work. We should have a dedicated topic for 1 and 1 support. So far with this .htaccess file I got everything working 100%. I Will be deploying my site shortly. If you figure out any additional comments that I can add to .htaccess file to make my site even more secure let me know.

I personally would never use 1and1 for my host. The joomla sites runs slow. Their servers seem to load the whole page (which takes about 3 seconds) then boom it appears. It sucks.

Here is my favorite host for Joomla and for support they are great also. Servers are super fast and the plans are hard to beat.

http://www.surpasshosting.com

No phone support but when you send in a ticket it gets answered immediately. I would highly recommend this service to all Joomla users

Shared hosting $6 month - 200GB storage - 2000GB Bandwidth Includes cPanel and Fantastico which gives you a one click bullet proof Joomla installation. Oh yeah they also let you host 10 Add On Domains!!

I am not sure why your 1 and 1 account is slow. I love mine. it is super fast. I have absolutely no complains. Phone support could be better. Other then that, it just works  :D Pricing is also good at 1 and 1. I usedwww.ipower.com and www.bluehost.com both are great. Bluehost has tech support in US and its good. The reason why I went with 1 and 1 is because I like the way the web mail works behind corporate firewalls and the way they control panel looks.

yes I can see that it is slow when it loads. Here is the site that I am building for my college legal department. http://www.hcparalegals.ca/ tell me if it is slow for you. I am on their 4.95 dollar plan per month (shared hosting). If the site continues to be slow for you, ask 1 and 1 to move you to a different cluster. I will bet that the server that your clients site is very busy or is running some serious scripts and slowing down everyone.

Hello,

I have a managed server with 1&1 and if I you running on PHP 4.x.x with them you can add this line to your .htaccess file to run on PHP 5.x.x

## One and One PHP5 setting
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
## END - One and One PHP 5 Settings

Thanks! This also fixed my problem. Took an hour and a half searching, eventually just searched 1&! to find it. This forum's search feature needs a serious upgrade or advanced feature that works.


And I agree, a forum just on 1&1 and Joomla would be great or all 1&1 tricks out there. It really is a good deal for the money but you have to be aware of some things.

Re: Need help with SEO and .htaccess - CSS not found

Post by manooh » Mon Feb 25, 2008 5:21 pm

Thanks! The PHP-tweak was what I needed! Now the friendly-url pages are found, but: without the according CSS. Apparently, the page is searching the CSS files in this form:
http://www.mypage.com/cms/index.php/templates/rhuk_milkyway/css/template.css
whereas the correct link would be
http://www.mypage.com/cms/templates/rhu ... mplate.css

I have the SEO patch (http://www.joomlatwork.com/products/fre ... .5rc4.html) installed, could that be the problem?

Do I have to change the .htaccess SEO rewrite rules?

Any help greatly appreciated.

My clients Joomla installation is not in the root directory.
I was having trouble getting the SEF links working and was getting a 404 error.
I uncommented RewriteBase / in my .htacess file and it 'sorta' fixed the problem.
It got rid of the 404 errors but the links didn't link up to the correct pages.
Every link that I clicked on within the website sent me to the index.php file located in the root directory and not to the correct pages within Joomla. On top of that, the index.php page loads up with no images and no CSS. Fun Fun Fun.

Anyways...if somebody has had something similar when using 1&1 please let me know.

Thanks

Well if you uncommented it then its looking to put it "/" at the root... which is what "/" means right?

so if you put it under /joomla-site then your mod rewrite base should be the same it seems? "/joomla-site" ?

I seem to have a similar problem: when SEF is turned on, my section links work fine but anything below that (categor links and direct article links) return 404.
My hosting is 1and1. I tried that fix - but it didnt work and did not change the problem at all (in my htaccess i have /RewriteBase /myjoomlafolder )

I read some other posts about SEF messing up with breadcrumbs etc, some people suggested fixes there that also did not fix my problem.
The generated links (that do not work) look like this:

http://www.myfirstleveldomain.com/index.php/mysection/29-category/91-the-title-of-my-article

The numbers being the IDs of the category/articles.
Any suggestions what the problem could be and how I could fix it? Known bug?

;) You guys are total geniuses.

I've been messing around for a week trying to get sef to work on 1and1. Tech support although extremely courteous and prompt offered no support. Basically they said I was on my own. Fine the plan is not expensive, but it still left me with a problem. Finally finding this post has solved the problem in around 5 seconds. I'm very grateful.
To find the answer...do some work.

I almost have it working perfectly.

I also have a phpbb3 forum set up in a wrapper. When I go to the wrapped forum link, all it does is recurse my present webpage where the forum is supposed to be. (I have added a .png of the recursed situation at the bottom of the post)
Note that phpbb has an .htaccess file in its folder. I do not know how the two .htaccess files interact, but I am thinking that that may be where the problem is.


Here is my directory structure:

Hi Jeff

The answer here is you are using a wrapper to link to another part of your site rather than displaying the content as a linked indivdual item.

It's not your HTAccess which is doing this but the content type link.

It displays just fine until I add sef and adjust my .htaccess. It is a wrapper link to my forum.

Should I configure it as an external link with parent navigation?

I tried this solution out and I get the following message when I try to go off of the home page:
500 Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, www@www.jcdisciples.org and inform them of the time the error occurred , and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. [rodney/5600]

Error: HTTPd: syntax error or override violation in access control file /ch/files13.rt/1D8/jcdisciples.org/web/.htaccess, reason: Unknown keyword in Options directive.
When I get past that I get this kind of error
500 Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator www@ and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
Reason: Error parsing access file
In fact after I changed the .htaccess file back to its original form, I still get the error message and can't get to my admin. I am guessing the cache is the problem. :(

Any suggestions?
