category error 404 pleas help
« on: September 24, 2020, 18:28:20 pm »
hello i have a problem in my eshop.

When I create a category, for example Add-ons, and add a product to add-ons, I can't even open the product for clicking on the details right away, it will tell me a 404 error, as well as if I want to open the given category, it will also write 404.

Please help me.

Is this from a quickstart package?  I just looked and with quickstart they have a one year old VirtueMart version with their ownJoomDEv template overrides.
Quickstart problems are very difficult to solve so you may be advised to talk to JoomDev about the problem.

Check the error logs to see if anything shows there.
Turn Joomla & VirtueMart Debug on to see if that helps.
