New installation: site links 404 errors and /processwire/ access failure


Recommended Posts

I've just installed the latest version of PW on debian 8 with apache2. The install went flawless; no errors. After the install completed I tried to access /processwire/ and failed with a 404 error. The home page of the site displays, but all links fail with 404 errors.

Research suggests to edit .htaccess to make sure RewriteBase poinst to [path]/processwire/. I did that, but access to /processwire/ is still failing. I've also tried to enable AllowOverride All in the apache2 configuration file, but to no avail.

Any suggestions?

I don't know your (Debian) GNU/Linux level relative to LAMP, so I will ask some questions...

Have you also enabled mod_rewrite (it is not by default)?

Have you restarted Apache2?

(Do you have /index.php/ in the url paths of the other pages?)

Are you using Debian's default LAMP "package"?

Can you give more details?

      Hello all,
      I have recently installed ProcessWire as I am learning to develop my own personal website.
      The installation process was completed, pressed 'Login to Admin' and I am receiving a 404 error.
      I am using a GoDaddy Shared Hosting Package with Plesk installed.
      Does anyone have any experience with using ProcessWire on a shared hoasting package?
      Many Thanks.

      Hi Everyone
      I have a problem here. I have built a site with Processwire on localhost and then transferred to my customer's server. a) it's a windows server (unfortunately) and b) there is a domain-mapping for this site, the domain points to a folder of another domain. Sorry, I can't explain it any better, I don't really understand the different types of servers (why do they have to be different anyway...).
      My problem is, that I see the main website but not the admin page. Do I have to add anything to my .htaccess file?
      I also tried to include web.config file. Not .htaccess nor web.config file have an impact when changing its content. I really have no clue what to do!!

      Thanks for any pointing in the right direction!

      Hi Everyone, New here but not new to CMS and Template developing  . Early today, I've installed PW, it was successful, the result was flawless. But then, I realized I've encounter 404 error and was unable to go into admin. I've spend 4 hours going through troubleshooting guide following this link  http://processwire.com/docs/tutorials/troubleshooting-guide/page3  and I am not getting any luck, so I was hoping I could get some help from you so I can get started with PW
      First, the PW is running on localhost using MAMP 3.3.2 (free version).  The PW files is located inside MAMP/htdocs as subfolder called pwNew. So obvious inside htaccess the  Rewrite Base command should be 
      RewriteBase /pwNew (of course hashtags has been removed) if I did it right, then it didn't work for me!  So next, I went inside  /apache/conf/httpd.conf and  then changed... 'none' to 'All' 
      <Directory />     Options FollowSymLinks ExecCGI     AllowOverride All     Order deny,allow     Allow from all </Directory> Unfortunately, it didn't work for me.  I've confirmed twice... the mod_rewrite have been installed, up and running.
      Confirmation # 1 running mod_rewrite_test.php with this code below, 
      <?php if(in_array('mod_rewrite', apache_get_modules())) { echo 'mod_rewrite is installed.'; } else { echo 'mod_rewrite isn't installed.'; } ?> ...and then run it from browser

      Confirmation # 2 from phpinfo

      I really need your help and hope there are solution for it.
      Thanks in advance.

      The Processwire version is ProcessWire 2.4.0 © 2015
      When attempting to save edits to the page, instead of getting the pw success message, I get the 404 page not found page.  
      This page in question cannot be deleted, moved, edited...nada.
      Page edit takes me to: http://www.mydomain....e/edit/?id=5772
      When I attempt to save the edits the address bar still says:
      http://www.mydomain....e/edit/?id=5772 but it displays the 404 Page Not Found page and changes are not saved.

      Also disabled Modsecurity on the server. Any ideas please

      after i attemped to install a module -- the modules manager -- i can no longer access the 'modules' section in the admin.
      here's exactly how i got to this point
      i installed a fresh copy of pw (v 2.5.3) with the blank slate option.  install was completed without issue. wonderful.  directly after install i headed over to modules.processwire.com and downloaded the zip file for soma's module manager.  next i navigated back to the admin and over to the modules section. i chose to upload the modules manager zip file.  i selected the zip file from my desktop then hit upload, waited a bit then i got redirected to the 404 error page. and now i can not get to any page within the moduels section of the amdin.  i get redirected to the 404 error page.  i'm not sure where to start troubleshooting.  i restalled pw and attempted to install the module 2 more times as outlined above.  i get the same results.   
      any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
