When URL Method is set to 2 in SEO settings, URLS like fail to resolve to ... probably because the .htaccess (renamed from htaccess.default) is empty after a cpanel upgrade to 2.0.1.

Possible Answers

    If you installed it in a subfolder, you still need to modify the .htaccess file.

    There's an instruction in the .htaccess file about subfolders.

    Issue solved:

    dot should be added before htaccess

    Original = htaccss.default

    Changed to = .htaccess (see dot before htaccess)

    @ChuckRoast, pligg community:

    When we change the URl method to 2 (SEO Method) than url gives us an error page. Again if it is changed to 1 (Non-SEO Links) than every thing works normal.

    So what to do if we want to add the URl method to 2 (SEO Method).

    @ptroxler: Even downloading the latest version from ...... is also not solving this issue.

    @sayog ... you probably need to make sure that you've got an .htaccess file that contains what is in the htaccess.default file in the 2.0.1 download

    don't forget to change line 11 in .htaccess if your install lives in a subfolder :-o
