During the install process you visit the Module Manager section in the Zen Cart admin and I received an error complaining that a specific file did not exist. Below is a quick description of the error and what was done to resolve it.

It appears I missed reading the “requirements” section of the installation instructions. Below is more information on the problem and how to easily resolve.

Simple SEO URL: Request Exeeded The Limit Of 10 Internal Redirects

I was hired to install some ZenCart plugins recently one of which included the Simple SEO URL add on. The installation was fairly easy besides a dependency that was missing which I will describe in a future email. After the installation was complete I got excited when I was ready to test but was let down when I got a 500 Internal Server Error back from the Apache web server. The virtual host that the client was using didn’t have Error Logs enabled so I had to enable them and wait until they started archiving. Below is a description of the errors in the Apache Error Logs and how I resolved the issue.
