missing home, account, account-login, cart, products, and checkout

It installed without any errors.  I deleted the install directoy, changed permission as directed.  The first page of the catalog works, and admin works.  But that's it.  Clicking on "HOME' - webpage not found.  Same as all the other tabs. 

What did I do wrong, how do I recover?

I downloaded the latest verson from OpenCart home page today...  Is there a newer version then 0.7.8?  If so, why is it not on the OpenCart site?

This worked for me:

Here is how to be able to turn on and off url Aliases in admin for version 0.7.8

In this file:

library/environment/url.php

change:

if (!preg_match('/\/admin\/index.php/',$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'])) {

to

if ((!preg_match('/\/admin\/index.php/',$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'])) && ($this->config->get('config_url_alias'))) {

-------

After having done this change you can get turn off the use of url rewrites simply by going into your shops admin under

Admin >. Configuration >> Settings

and set

Use URL Alias: to "false" if you can't or simply dont want to use url rewites on your server/hosting set-up


And if you later on change your mind and want to use them, then its just to switch them to "on" again in the admin.

If you have them set to "on" then also make sure that you have a correctly set-up .htaccess file in your shops main folder.

Yes great. Now click the link I gave you and download the latest 0.7.9 release. You are only wasting your time with that 0.7.8 release
