TOPIC: JoomSEF and virtual hosts problem

JoomSEF and virtual hosts problem 14 years, 9 months ago #232

  • Nicolas Moyroud

I installed JoomSEF on my Joomla, but it simply don't work at all.
I followed all your instructions several times (install & re-install).
.htaccess file copied from your doc, 3rd party section uncommented, global Joomla SEF set to on, and JoomSEF too
I'm working with several joomla sites installed on one server using apache virtual hosts, so i tried to play with RewriteBase. For example, I have and in /var/www/site1 and /var/www/site2. I made 2 virtual hosts in my httpd.conf.
What do I need in /var/www/site1/.htaccess for my RewriteBase ?
When I look in error.log of apache, I see :
File does not exist : /var/www/site1/contact/view.html when I click on the URL
It seems that the URL is not translated by rewrite rules... I don't understand.
Can you help me ?

Ok I found the problem
In my http.conf, directive AllowOverride needs to be set All for the .htaccess file directory

<Directory /var/www/site1>
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Now it takes into account the .htaccess file and url rewriting works.
I think it would be a great idea to indicate this in your installation documentation. It could save a lot of time to people which will have the same problem as me.
However thank you very much for this great Joomla component and sorry for bad english :-)
