Opencart 1.5 SEO URL htaccess fix 500 Internal Server Error

Have you upgraded to Opencart 1.5

Versions: v1.5.0.3 v1.5.0.2 v1.5.0.1 v1.5.0

I had problems getting the SEO Friendly URLS to work on my Opencart 1.5.0.3 install, after looking in the HTACCESS file I found this:

RewriteBase /opencart/upload/

The fix to make the SEO Friendly URLS – MOD REWRITE work change that line to:

RewriteBase /

Basically just remove the opencart/upload/  part!

 

There we go! Problem Solved!” 🙂

Alternatively if you’re unsure about editing files, simply upload the .htaccess file saved here, tested on the OpenCart versions 1.5.0.3 and below:
