Upgrade 5.2.16 overwrite your .htaccess


Recommended Posts

The .htaccess file is used by the web server, specifically Apache and nginx(?), to contain certain statements and directives.

 

These directives tell the web server to make certain decisions and change certain aspects of the URL sent to it, among a long list of potential directives depending on what modules you have installed for the web server.

 

CubeCart's involvement is to take a URL that looks like:

store.com/friendly-name-of-a-product.html

and convert it to:

www.store.com/index.php?seo_path=friendly-name-of-product

 

CubeCart then has a piece of data it can work with to determine what actual product (or category, document, or other page) to show.

Not the "wrong" .htaccess file, it is a standard version. However, the point is (which has been made in previous posts as well) that if you have made changes to this (which ALL CubeCart installations should do !) then those changes will be lost when doing an upgrade. This file and the robots.txt files should not be part of a standard distribution
