Solving the 404 Error when activating Search Engine Friendly URLs options in Joomla websites


Sometimes when we decide to use or imply "Search Engine Friendly URLs", we face to "404 Error". How should it be managed?



Go to "Site Configuration" within your administrator of Joomla.

Turn on "Search Engine Friendly URLs"

Turn on "Use Apache mod_rewrite" within the Joomla Global Config.

Then rename the htaccess.txt file in your web directory to .htaccess
