Directives of module mod_rewrite are used in WebAsyst to correctly process SEO-friendly URLs of the storefront pages. Note that mod_rewrite can only be used with web server Apache. Follow the instructions below to check whether module mod_rewrite is installed and correctly configured on your server.
RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php
print 'mod_rewrite works!';
The page that will open should contain message "mod_rewrite works!". If no such message appears, make sure that the mod_rewrite module is installed and correctly configured, and that it is supported by your web server.
Note: Your server must support use of .htaccess files for correct functioning of the mod_rewrite module.
