Search Engine Friendly URLs does not work - Joomla 4 Beta 5

Post by paulnecsoiu » Thu Dec 03, 2020 7:16 pm

Hello,

Installed fresh Joomla Beta 5 on:
Ubuntu 20.04
Apache2.4
PHP 7.4
PHP-FPM
mod_rewrite enabled
htaccess.txt renamed to .htaccess

In joomla Admin interfece I have activated:
Search Engine Friendly URLs
Use URL Rewriting

It seems that URL ReWriting is working as It removes index.php from the URL's, but the URL's still have the same format:

Code: Select all

/?view=article&id=2:first-article&catid=2
Can anyone help me with this problem?

Thank you in advance.

I don't know the answer; I haven't seen any reports like this before.

Can you try a test, please, to confirm if J! 4 beta 5 is different to J! 3.9.23? You would need to create a J! 3.9.23 website with the same kind of configuration as you've used with J! 4 beta 5 (i.e. with some articles, menus, etc., just as you did with J! 4) and tell us whether these non-SEF URLs occur in your J! 3.9 experience. If the situation is the same in J! 3.x then, perhaps, that's just the way things are supposed to be with J! 4?

I am working with a github fork/clone of joomla-cms. I just turned on SEO, renamed htaccess, etc. and it all works as I expected. So we need more information! But I don't know what! Try a single article menu item.
