I can't access the admin panel - the homepage works

Recommended Posts

Note - I've not set this up, I'm not experienced, I'm probably omitting much
relevant information as a result so this post will be a bit of a work in
progress. The answer may be on the forum here - If it is I can't tell for lack
of experience (I've looked).

I cannot for the life of me get an install to work and I've tried a lot, and
I've asked others who're also struggling but I'll try posting here before
another CMS as I've heard it's nice.

Info about the server : https://gist.github.com/65086fbc7b5dd03abd0f0461b9c0ec8b

I'm using the `stable` version of Processwire.

My `htaccess` file is working - you can test here http://rightangle.space/ and
click on the admin page to see the internal server error.

Here is the htaccess file https://gist.github.com/3b805b8ab3c7978aca90a6e39773da00

Here is the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file https://gist.github.com/2b2f2518ce7df4af4739413bc967cf56

Here is the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf file https://gist.github.com/400cc958ff32dfb6df80693fd8531f08

Here's the output of  tree -fa /var/www/ https://gist.github.com/a3569becd9889b4b05c4f0d0a8a561d7

Hi sudodo,

Welcome to the ProcessWire forums. Sorry to hear you're having trouble.

The admin login page at http://rightangle.space/processwire/ is loading normally for me.


If you are seeing an error message when attempting to access this page could you post back with the contents of the message? Do you still get the error if you try a different browser? And if you access the page in your browser's private/incognito mode?

Your pessimistic impression of programming help forums is explicable just because it's your very first post in this community.

Stay here, and you will soon have lost your prejudice...  😉

      Hi all,
      I've been practicing with Processwire. I was wondering at the moment what were the best modules to realize my project.
      I would like to ask your advice for the following problems:
      multi-language (for now i use: Languages Support, Languages Support - Fields, Languages Support - Page Names, Languages Support - Tabs) contact form (Form Builder?) form inside a product sheet (Form Builder?) seo tool for page (title, description, opengraph, json ld, ecc) meta data management for images (e.g.: image's tag "title" in the gallery developed with a Repeater) associations (intended as the best module to create associations for example between product and categories or tags) cache + css-js minify tool (ProCache ?) ps: I checked some posts in the forum but I found very old posts so I wonder if there are any new ones introduced over time.

      Thank you in advance, have a nice day!

      Getting a little deeper into the ProcessWire state-of-mind here. I seriously think I wouldn't have come back to webdev if it wasn't for this wonderful little gem of a CMS.
      I have an "Options" field added to all users on a site. If the user has anything other then "default" selected, I would like to show a permanent message in the admin like the one in the screenshot, only so that the user can't close it. As a friendly reminder that he changed that option from default to something crazy 🙂
      I've read up on how to send messages to users, but where would I hook into to make this show up all the time in the backend?
      Thanks in advance!

      Here's a small new module that adds a "Manage tags" button to the template list, just like the field list already has.
      Easily add, remove and change tags for your templates.

      Hi, I have already tried in different ways and many times to migrate but I always have issues at the end.
      Here's what I have done so far:
      case 1:
      1. Install PW on live server (all normal)
      2. Import local DB into live DB
      3. Front page site seems to work but I cannot login into admin page
      case 2 (I'm currently on this stage):
      1. Copied all files from local to live server
      2. Import local DB into live empty DB
      3. Front page works, but any other page and admin page are 404
      In both cases:
      - I have changed config.php info accordingly to live server (DB name, DB user and pwd, userauthsalt code)
      - Uncommented RewriteBase / and RewriteBase /pw/ lines on .htaccess
      - applied owner and group permissions to www-data for PW location
      - applied permissions to folders and files accordingly
      - applied a2enmod rewrite to apache2 on live server and restarted service
      I have read some posts (Ryan's too) about migration and it seems to me that I'm doing it fine, don't know what it fails-
      I'm on VMWare machine, Ubuntu Server 18.04, php 7.2, phpMyAdmin 5.0.1
      Hope you can help me, thanks in advance

      Hi. I've been using Processwire for a few years now and installed it on a few different shared hosting servers without issues, but I'm now running into an issue on a Fasthosts shared server that I've not seen before. The installation goes ok and I have a working default site profile but I am unable to complete any uploads of images. It just hangs at the progress spinner during the upload. I thought it might be a priviledge issue so have temporarily set the dir / file privs. as 777 / 666 just to test that but it made no difference. I have no errors in the wire log. In server error log I have:
      set_time_limit() has been disabled for security reasons in ....htdocs/wire/core/ImageSizerEngine.php on line 1035 and i note in the assets/file dir. where the image is being stored the date on the file being created has a year of 1970 and 0 length. If I leave the page this file disappears and nothing has been stored. 
      Does anyone know how I can enable set_time_limit if this is likely to be the problem? 
      Many thanks! Paul
