Help with "Not Found Error"

Hi all, I am a novice and have no idea what has gone wrong. I have loaded a few products onto my site that I am trying to build and when I go in to try and view a product from the customer side I get the following error:

Not Found
The requested URL /camping/leatherman-tools was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


I have set the seo name for each product and category (which is also now giving this error). I really need help if someone can assist that would be awesome.
I am using OC 1.5.6.4. I have checked with my host and they cant find any error on their side either.

system
vendors
vqmod
config.php
cpmove-sereng5443.tar.gz

Well, it would be better, to make your Shop work again in it's default way of doing things,
until you have cleaned out those Carbage ZIP's and Files in the Shop Root Section, and
eventually found your .htaccess or .htaccess.txt File. It is called a HIDDEN File, if it
carries a DOT before it's (.)Name, and on Servers, it can ONLY be seen and found, if the
FTP Client is SET, to display HIDDEN Files. It is placed in the Shop ROOT Section,
where the Shop index.php and Shop config.php Files (plus others) are existing.
And it needs to be RE-NAMED to .htaccess , if it still carries the .txt ending.
Good Luck ;)

PS: And IF a Shop Software is placed in a Subdirectory, to make SEO work, the
RewriteBase / Line has to be changed, to link to this Sub Directory, like
/shop/ - or /cart/ - or /whatever/ ;)

Code: Select all

# If your opencart installation does not run on the main web folder,
# make sure you folder it does run in ie. / becomes /cart/
RewriteBase /shop/

Code: Select all

# If your opencart installation does not run on the main web folder,
# make sure you folder it does run in ie. / becomes /cart/
RewriteBase /cart/

You can download the default htaccess from below link and rename it with htaccess.txt to .htaccess on public_html (root directory). Please note that if your opencart is in subdirectory make changes accordingly -

Also check that every product SEO keyword is unique.
