Hello Friends,

Open Cart is getting popularity in Open Source Shopping Cart market. Open Cart has a great list of features and provide all standard shopping cart functionality. Also it is built with MVC architecture so developer also finds easy to make customization and changes compare to other shopping carts like Magento and ZenCart. I am working with Open Cart since last few days and want to enable URL Rewriting feature in Open Cart. Its easy to make it enable and working with .htaccess. If you are unaware with how to enable url rewriting in open cart than here is the easy way to do it.

1. Rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess

    I love OpenCart, just wish it wasn’t so lacking in terms of SEO. It’s a great ecommerce system, but it feels like a step backwards sometimes.
