.htaccess issues - Page Not Found on all links

Postby except » Wed Jul 27, 2011 7:03 pm

Hi there!

I hope someone can help us out. I'm making a Magento store for a friend who has a tiny store in a village, hoping to boost his income a little bit by augmenting his store-business with web-business. I have a little bit of experience with setting up websites, so I thought I'd help him out. In general things seem to be going okay, but we've hit a point now where we can't find the solution.

We’ve just installed Magento on our server. It was installed in the /magento web subdirectory, which on the server is:
/var/www/vhosts/www.audiohuisdelft.nl/HTML/magento/

I got Internal Server Error 500 when I installed it. I had to rename the .htaccess file in the root of the magento folder, because it gave a permanent Internal Server Error when I left it. I tried editing the file to set the “RewriteBase /magento/” string, but this did not help. When I removed it, the front page loaded,.

Now, all the links on the homepage fail. I think it has to do with the .htaccess file. I have already tried to re-set all the permissions, which did not help.

We don't have access to the error logs. Any help is truly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Tom

What control panel are you using out of interest.

yes, you either need to replace your .htaccess file or turn off apache rewrites

put your .htaccess back where it came from and then look at your log files for why you are getting 500 error

Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately, as this is on a pretty restricted web hosting service, we don't have access to the logs, so we can't see what's wrong. We also don't have access to the apache configuration.

Any tips on seeing how we can fix things?

Hm, no, it's a very old webhost that my friend has. We were lucky it had MySQL.

If that solves it, that would be great :)
Can you tell me what you mean by 'admin'? You mean in Magento's admin panel?
