Virtuemart extension giving 404 error 10 years, 11 months ago #7307

Hi guys,

I have installed the Virtuemart extension, but unfortunately it's not working.

I am getting a 404 error when I click on the menu. I don't know why it's doign this, but have noticed:

In Joomla, the Online shop menu link is configured as:
index.php?option=com_virtuemart

When I click on the Online Shop menu item though, it takes me to:
www.plixer.com.au/index.php?Itemid=2&option=
- and this doesn't work.

It looks to me like its rewriting the Online Shop URL - to one which isn't working.


If I go directly to this link, all works:
www.plixer.com.au/index.php?option=com_virtuemart
(however, I'm not convinced SEF URLs are actually working for the shop).

For example, here's one of the items I can get to by going direct:
www.plixer.com.au/index.php?option=com_v...temid=2&TreeId=1

- as you can see it's not a very nice URL - has this been rewritten?

Thanks,Mark

Dear Mark,

this does not seem you would have URL rewrting activated at all. Please, check the installation steps as described in documentation.
(most likely, your other URLs, e.g. for com_content component are also not rewritten?)

Hi Jan,

Thanks for the reply. The URLS are being rewritten for the main site:

eg:
www.plixer.com.au/index.php/scrutinizer-overview

Interesting after reinstalling, I got the URL below:
www.plixer.com.au/index.php/component/virtuemart/?vmcchk=1


- that worked, but didn't when I went back and clicked on the menu option for virtuemart.

Basically, I still have the issue. Does SEF URLS need to be switched on for Virtuemart individually? The Vituemart component installed without error incidently,

thanks,
Mark

Hi,

A small further update. When configuring the menu option for the online shop, I picked virtumart - and joomla then automatically fills in the URL as follows:

www.plixer.com.au/index.php?Itemid=2&option=

- this doesn't work


I then created a new menu item for the following URL, which does work:
www.plixer.com.au/index.php/component/virtuemart/?vmcchk=1
- this looks more like it.

When I then go into one of the products, I get this URL:
www.plixer.com.au/index.php?option=com_v...temid=2&TreeId=1

- this doesn't look right (to me anyway)

Any thoughts?

thanks.,
Mark

Hello,

if you see index.php in the URLs, that means JoomSEF is not enabled or working correcly!
Male sure you have all SEO options ON in your Joomla configuration. (specially the one that says, use .htaccess file).

Hi Jan,

Thanks for the feedback.

Here's the .htaccess file below.

I can't find anywhere in the main configuration options in Joomla to force it to use a .htaccess file. Could it be called something else? I have SEF URLS enabled in the Joomla main configuration and under the Artio component menu.

Also, the SEF URLs are working for the main site - just not when I access the virtuemart pages...

thanks,
Mark
