    Yes. I did that but there is no change in the URL's. But everytime i make this change in the file it goes back to false status.

    Hate to bump the thread again. But this problem is not resolved as config.php is having 644 permission set to it which can't be changed and i don't know how to get URL's working in any other way.

    Any help ?

    Config file needs to be writable by the web server user or else you'll not be able to change any settings.

    Hi tim,

    Now you'll be surprised at the fix that i came up with for this issue. I copied the contents of config.php on notepad and saved on my desktop as "config.php". Then i deleted the cofig.php on server and uploaded the new file to server. It is working now. I think there is no way for me to edit the permissions for this file which is sad so this is the only fix.

    Thanks for the help Tim and emkay. :)

    I think it's related: how can I localize the URL in Italian?
    I have to change discussion in "discussione": is it simple? Would I have some problems with the addons?
