Error File Note Found - Permalink/PHP issue

With my current site, www.CollegeHoopsChat.com, when a link is clicked on, the following comes up:

404 Error File Not Found

The page you are looking for might have been removed,
had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

  • If you typed in the URL, please check the spelling
  • You can try to click the Back button and try another link
How do I change the permalink from the back end of the site? Thanks very much!​

Yeah it looks like you have enabled friendly URLs but are missing the .htaccess file. Two options:

1) Upload the "htaccess.txt" file from the zip file and rename it on the server to ".htaccess"

2) Login directly to the Admin CP:


And disable friendly URLs:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) -> Use Full Friendly URLs
