[Zen Cart] URL Not Found after install

Postby robinsonjas » Sun Jun 13, 2010 7:45 am

Followed instructions and URLs are not found. The appear to be translated, but when I click they are not working.
Godaddy is host; ZenOptimizer already installed on shared server so I just created a php5.ini file and dumped the references there (see below).

http://bbmetalfab.com/store/book-ends-23/

Code: Select all

-bash-3.2$ cat php.ini
register_globals = off
allow_url_fopen = off

expose_php = Off
max_input_time = 60
variables_order = "EGPCS"
extension_dir = ./
upload_tmp_dir = /tmp
precision = 12
SMTP = relay-hosting.secureserver.net
url_rewriter.tags = "a=href,area=href,frame=src,input=src,form=,fieldset="

[Zend]
zend_extension=/usr/local/zo/ZendExtensionManager.so
zend_extension=/usr/local/zo/4_3/ZendOptimizer.so


Also have SSL (https://bbmetalfab.com) as well; what is needed for that (if anything)
Thank You

No luck so far; It appears the .htaccess file in my / is not getting rewritten. GoDaddy support article says mod_rewrite is enabled globally. Sending ticket to GoDaddy. What should the .htaccess file look like after it gets rewritten?
I have:

Code: Select all

-bash-3.2$ cat .htaccess
addhandler x-httpd-php5-cgi .php5
addhandler x-httpd-php-cgi .php4
addhandler x-httpd-php5-cgi .php
-bash-3.2$

There should be Rewrite Rules in .htaccess file. Please follow carefully installation instructions.

Went back thru install, same results. Checked perms, etc I can't see anything wrong. I have access to edit my .htaccess directly.
According to install doc under requirements I see:
Apache 1.3.x, 2.0.x or 2.2.x with mod_rewrite installed and .htaccess file handling enabled (or with ability to add Rewrite Rules to Apache configuration files).

Any content i can paste in that file to test?

It is not necessary to test mod_rewrite (yet). The problem is that your .htaccess file has not been generated. Please double check everything. GoDaddy is supported very well.

So what is generating the .htaccess file? I sent ticket to GoDaddy, they replied w/ "...we dont support 3rd party apps..."
I found a few hits on Zend's website for issues w/ GoDaddy...Among them was an article that said to install your own ZendOptimizer...
I d/l the file and put it on my server - referenced in php5.ini and still no luck? Maybe I'm not patient enuf (I have seen articles say GoDaddy takes a while for php.ini refreshes????)

Here's output from my phpinfo after my ZendOptimizer upload.
This program makes use of the Zend Scripting Language Engine:
Zend Engine v2.2.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2008 Zend Technologies
with Zend Optimizer v3.3.9, Copyright (c) 1998-2009, by Zend Technologies

There is no problem with your host. You only need to generate .htaccess file. Please see FAQ and Troubleshooting section in manual.

This section??:
How can I re-generate the .htaccess file content?
1.Change the permissions on www/.htaccess to be writeable by all (666 or -rw-rw-rw- within your FTP Client) and delete readonly-htaccess file if exists on your FTP.

2.Using your web browser visit the location you placed your internet shopping cart, e.g. http://www.mydomain.com/store/, http://www.mydomain.com/catalog/ etc. (by doing so the content of www/.htaccess file will be re-generated).

3.Change the permissions on www/.htaccess to be writeable only by yourself (644 or -rw-r--r-- within your FTP Client) and/or create new blank file with readonly-htaccess name in same directory (this will prevent www/.htaccess file from being overwritten by Inveo Magic SEO URLs).

4.The re-generation of .htaccess file content is finished.


Code: Select all

-bash-3.2$ pwd
/var/chroot/home/content/XX/XXXXXXX/html
Here's my steps just now:
-bash-3.2$ cat .htaccess
addhandler x-httpd-php5-cgi .php5
addhandler x-httpd-php-cgi .php4
addhandler x-httpd-php5-cgi .php
-bash-3.2$ mv .htaccess .htold
-bash-3.2$ > .htaccess
-bash-3.2$ ls -al .htaccess
-rw-r--r-- 1 xxxxxxxx inetuser 0 Jun 13 17:48 .htaccess
-bash-3.2$ chmod 666 .htaccess
-bash-3.2$ ls -al .htaccess
-rw-rw-rw- 1 xxxxxxxx inetuser 0 Jun 13 17:48 .htaccess
-bash-3.2$ ls -al .htaccess
-rw-rw-rw- 1 xxxxxxxx inetuser 0 Jun 13 17:48 .htaccess
-bash-3.2$ ls -al .htaccess
-rw-rw-rw- 1 xxxxxxxx inetuser 0 Jun 13 17:48 .htaccess


I did 'ls -l' after each refresh of my store home page...I assume its supposed to generate the .htaccess at that time ...?

Is .htaccess file stored in Shopping cart root folder? (folder named "store" in your case)
