VM + sh404SEF
« on: June 10, 2008, 17:09:45 pm »

I have installed sh404SEF in to my shop.
I have some problem because with seo friendly links:

so there is 2 links in one link :/

I thing that reason is thing that VM is in subfolder joomla_1_0_11.
I'm using htaccess file with RewriteBase /joomla_1_0_11/ instead of /

Have somebody have SEO friendly links and VM in subfolder working correctly?

I'd experienced similar problem like yours before..

The problem actually cause by your SEF404 and the .htaccess file.

In SEF404 setting, go to Advance tab and change the Rewriting mode to  with .htaccess (mod_rewrite)

My case before this, I use without .htaccess (index.php)

Then, in your .htaccess file. add this line below the #  mod_rewrite in use

RewriteEngine On

Try make the change first.. That solution was almost 1 month before... I afraid I forget some of the detail..

instead of joomla_1_0_11 for rewrite base, write /folder_name of your joomla instalation
