mmph Posted June 5, 2005 Share Posted June 5, 2005 I'm not sure where to start..... Bobby, I have spent several hours reading your support theads and I'm very impressed! I would like to improve my URL's and I think I have gotten a little mixed up here. My store is pretty small and fairly stock. I'm hoping you or one of the other fine folks here can get me pointed in the right direction. I found a contibution called "seo redirect beta3" and tried to install it, when I did not find the "snippit" in application_top.php as called out in the install directions I realized the contribution said it was built on the cName and pName contirbution; now this does not necessarily tell a greeny like myself if I need to install the cName first but I decided that would be the best thing to do. It sure looks simple although I have not had success, here is what I've done and the results. I followed the install directions very closely although I don't understand this statement: You will need to edit these two files and fill in the correct value for the $cache_dir variable. I would suggest creating a folder OUTSIDE your webroot and give the webserver read/write permission. Is this related to my admin panel defining the Cache directory as /tmp/ ? I am not sure if I have entered the correct path in seo_cache.php because I don't really understand what the path points to, this is how I have it now: # Enter the FULL FILE SYSTEM PATH to the cache directory. Include the ending slash $cache_dir = '/home/e-lectro/public_html/ecommerce/os/catalog/includes/'; I had Cache disabled from my admin, so I enabled it and the directory for it is: /tmp/ Well, I can't find a folder anywhere on my server called /tmp/ ? Ignoring this and adding the two files provided and making the other required file edits when I log into my store I get this: I can easily undo the file changes at this point, what I really need is some direction as to what steps I need to follow to improve my URL's using Bobby's contributions assuming my MS2 install were totally stock. From my point of view there are several contributions and I don't know if I need just one or several of them to build on each other. Your comments are greatly appriciated, thanks a million!
