hello Today I updated my Magento 126.96.36.199 to version 188.8.131.52
inside the Wizard Installation I entered the old database of my shop .
just I entered the frontend I noticed that all of the links do not work (the browser shows me the error 403 ) , same thing for the backend.
I saw that the url to work must contain /index.php/ , which was not the case in my old shop .
wondering if it were possible to remove index.php from the URL ( I 've tried to edit the .htaccess file but it did not work ) .
thanks in advance for your help
best regards .
To remove index.php, go to System > Configuration > Web > Search Engine Optimization and set Use Web Server Rewrites to YES.
Hope it will help you, else let me know again.
