Search engine friendly problem

Post by zorkan » Tue Aug 27, 2013 10:01 am

I have a problem with managing my SEFurls. Its been two days now and I still cant get it to work.
I have renamed my htacces.txt to .htaccess, I have installed ACESEF plugin which tells me that apache_mod_rewrite is enabled on joomla. I also tried commenting out
Options +FollowSymLinks, commenting out RewriteBase, just like adding a subfolder name to the RewriteBase

This is how my .htaccess looks like
http://pastebin.com/TrtEZcSq

This is how my acesef looks like

and this is how my global configuration looks like

I can only open main page, and for each other article or item menu i get 404 page not found.
Can you help me please

Suggest you first do a test with no .htaccess, no url rewriting and no 3rd party SEF plugin but just set SEFurls to "Yes" in "Global Configuration" in the backend.

It should show any aliases you have insteasd of the standard long url. As described in the help:

Search Engine Friendly URLs. When set to Yes, URLs are rewritten to be more friendly for search engine spiders. For example, the URL: http://www.example.com/index.php?option ... t&view=etc..., would turn into: www.example.com/alias. Most of the items created in Joomla! have an Alias box where a search engine friendly URL can be inserted.
