I have got a problem in Joomla.. I think, it is just a link problem maybe from the server-side. I don't know!

I renamed htacess.txt to .htaccess from my root folder before activated URL Rewriting.
WebSite's page gets response that 404 not found !!

Example: /localhost/about.html 

enter image description here

But I get a response when I put to "index.php" in the URL


enter image description here
then everything is seen.

I want to web site run localhost/about.html

Would I change something from .htaccess.txt or db ?

Please help me ? And I am sorry my bad english :((

check if apache rewrite_module ia active in your localhost

  • That sounds good! I checked that and I can't active from wamp server. I looked at httpd.conf and I removed to this sign "# "(Load rewrite_module) but The problem unchanged. So I look at the wamp apache server,maybe there is another problem. Thanks dude ! @Piero Marsilio

    Don not forget to Restart Apache services after changes in httpd.conf, of course...
