    EMBC Web2 SEF

    Has anybody managed to get search engine friendly URL's working on EMBC Web1/Web2? I've enabled it but it keeps redirecting back to the homepage. I'm not sure if this is anything to do with the fact that I am also having to type in index.php to get the page to display. I assume that Plesk is probably looking for index.html or similar.

    is there a .htaccess.txt ? if so you may need to rename this to just .htaccess

    Isn't that just a Linux thing?

    Thank you.

    I've logged a call with Synetrix to see whether the index.php is something they have to change however any help from somebody already using Synetrix hosting would be appreciated!

    Log into your Plesk Panel and add it yourself; save the need for them to do so.

    As for your SEO urls; I don't know the answer there, sorry.

    I've looked for the option but can't find it.

    As for the URL's.

    http://www.mydomain.co.uk/site/index...-news/105-test

    It's creating the URL's and changing the address in the address bar but the actual page isn't changing.

    I can't see Web Directories. I did try looking already.

    Edit: Found it! It's under Virtual Directories.

    I found it under Virtual Directories.

    Web1 has the old Plesk version. Web2 is running version 9 with Web1 running version 8.

    I found it but it hasn't made much difference. I put index.php at the top of the list but it still comes up with a 404 Not Found unless I type in /index.php which is odd.

    Maybe it's there just to mock you from afar.

    Right, so I can't get that to work.

    Apparantly I need an ISAPI rewriter for the SEF links to work. Perhaps this isn't installed and that is why it doesn't work.

    I'm so tempted to find a cheap Linux host.
