Hi guys

I have almost finished setting up my first opencart setup.

I have two problems at the moment

1. The url SOMETIMES (not always) shows as /shop which is right, and is how the main page should show. But sometimes it changes to shop/index.php?route=common/home. A few other pages end up showing this sort of thing too. Any idea how I can prevent this?
2. There is some sort of caching issue. for example a new user registers an account and logs in to it, but they are then prompted to log in again over and over until a forced refresh of the page makes it realise they are logged in. Any ideas how to fix that?

Opencart looks like a really great system and I'm looking forward to learning more and more about it, any help you can give on the above two points would be EPIC

Best regards

Luke

.htaccess file issue. Use an SEO extension from the marketplace rather than the one from the core. It is way easier to handle the URLs. ;)

I would first uninstall the SEO extension and see if that resolves the problem for the URL. If so, there are plenty on the Marketplace you could rather download for free.

Ensure your system/storage folder is outside your public_html folder. Edit your config.php and admin/config.php files and set the new location for your DIR_STORAGE. Remove the entire line in your .htaccess where it says: ^system/storage . Set recursive permission settings to your storage folder. Clear all OC cache from your admin - > dashboard and from your admin - > extensions - > modifications - > refresh button. This should resolved the issue.

Can you please explain how you Set recursive permission settings to your storage folder?

Also if site is online would you do this in cpanel, or through your FTP client?
