Hi there, I am running Joomla 2.5
I installed AceSEF, and everything was fine. Then I went in and edited the URLs, expected that AceSEF will map the old links to the new URL - but that didn't work. Now my back-end AceSEF URL page is a jumble of wrong URLs, the sitelinks are all broken - and I don't know how to go back.

When I disable AceSEF, Joomla's SEF URLs still don't work as before - 404 errors or directing to the wrong page.

Please help.

You should have backedup AceSEF data from ACESEF control Panel.

Have you changed any settings in  Configuration >URLS> .?

if so revert back and purge all urls. and regenerate all of them.

Before following my instructions.I advise you to take backeup of urls from RESTORE/MIGRATE

Okay, I found Restore/Migrate. But if I backup URLs now, it will backup the broken ones, yes?

 - is that useful?

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Yes.It will backup broken one.

I would suggest you to create copy site somewhere or on test domain.and then try to regenerate all urls.

The Generate URLs icon is not working. Is there some other method to regenerate all URLs?
