To use SEO URL's Apache module mod_rewrite must be installed and you need to rename the root htaccess.txt file to .htaccess

mod_rewrite is something that is installed on your server by your web host. You need to ask your host (or look in their help guide) to find out if you have it.

rewrite base note

If you access store with sub-folder like http://www.mydomain/subfolder make sure to change RewriteBase / to RewriteBase /subfolder/ in the .htaccess file.

.htaccess is a configuration file for use on web servers running the Apache Web Server software.

htaccess note

The dot in front of “.htaccess” indicates that this file is ‘invisible’. Therefore you may have to configure the FTP application or hosting file manager you’re using to show invisible files.

“.htaccess” on an Apache based web server, will allow you to configure specific settings for how you’d like your website, or certain files within your website, to behave.
