Enable Search Engine Friendly URLs in Magento is quite easy for magento administrator. Even though it ‘s quite easy we still need to write it down to save for later use. Recently we see our members who are working with magento for a long time, sometimes they forget how to configure this simple stuffs :).
To enable Search Engine Friendly URLs in Magento, you have to log in to the Magento administration area and click on the Configuration button. Under the System navigation menu, switch to Web page from the sub-navigation panel on the left.
When the page loads, you will see blue lines which represent closed options tablets. Click on the Search Engines Optimization tab and turn on the Use Web Server Rewrites (mark as Yes). Click on the Save Config button and your Magento SEF URLs will be enabled.
We are done. Now let ‘s try to test it. If you meet anything wrong then it can only come from mod_rewrite problem, let ‘s make sure you turn it on and you have .htaccess file of magento in root folder. Good luck
