Hi, I am running OS Commerce 2.3.1 with a purchased template that has been modified nothing major.
I have a clear understanding of PHP and i am willing to learn anything new.

My problem has been hassling me for a week now regarding the Contribution by Chemo you all are highly aware of Ultimate SEO Urls.
Installing this on my directory was no problem.. Step 7 states that the 404 Error is the most common error and is caused by .HTACCESS file or the setup of ur category file, please correct me if i am wrong.

Now upon enabling SEO my products url are altered BUT my category pages and products receive a PAGE NOT FOUND 404 ERROR

When i try to edit the existing htaccess file located in my root and adding the rewrite base
the error then changes to a INTERNAL SERVER ERROR 500.

in conclusion i believe the error is caused by the htaccess file and it redirecting my pages.
- i have read somewhere it can also be caused by apache?

If you require any file info or the content of my htaccess please let me know as i require help
I have been in and out threads and forums turned google upside down and i am still stuck.

I know its something easy and its in front of me but without the correct understanding tying your laces can be the hardest task.

INTERNAL SERVER ERROR 500 is commonly due to syntax in htaccess file.

if possible paste htaccess code.

What happens if you replace your file with a standard copy of the file supplied with oscommerce.


Due to the current work load, the light at the end of the tunnel has been switched off.
