  • 2.We recommend you to rename it from .htaccess to htaccess.txt (if not already done) cause for example on Mac the System use files that starts with a "." as System Files which aren't shown!
  • 3.Edit htaccess.txt with  Notepad++, Coda, Text Wrangler or with another editor
  • 4.Find the line that has “# RewriteBase /”
  • 5.Remove the “#” sign to uncomment
  • 6.Note: if your site is on a sub-directory the above should appear like this: RewriteBase /yourJoomlaRootFolder/
  • 7.Use FTP to copy the htaccess.txt file to your web server
  • 8.Rename it on your Server from htaccess.txt to .htaccess
  • 9.Enable few SEF options again in Global Configuration
  • 10.Refresh browser and check to see if it is working
