OK, I have encountered the following issue:

Admin page gets a Craft 404 page error; home page loads fine though.

  • Home page: enter image description here
  • Admin page: enter image description here

Clearly Craft is working, though I am not sure what is causing this to break for me. Any suggestions? I can provide any information you may want to see, just let me know.

Thank you Craft friends!

Here is the contents of my /etc/apache2/sites-availavble/000-default.conf file:

<VirtualHost *:80>

ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/public

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined


I have pointed my DocumentRoot to /var/www/html/public, though did I miss something in my configuration?

Thanks again Craft friends!

    It looks like your document root is incorrect. It should point to the public directory, so the admin URL will be Commented Mar 13, 2017 at 23:33
  • Hello and thank you @stephen, are you referring to /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf OR /etc/apache2/apache2.conf ? Commented Mar 13, 2017 at 23:43
  • The former. It should contain a DocumentRoot directive. Commented Mar 14, 2017 at 14:13
  • @StephenLewis I believe I have that setup already, unless I missed something else in my configuration? Commented Mar 14, 2017 at 15:38

Apparently I am "to close to the painting" here and completely missed a simple answer. In my case, I was going to the wrong URL completely.
