Have not accessed my local .test sites in a bit. I tried today. I am getting a series of errors.

At first I could not access any page to include the admin page. I ran Composer update from the command line (within a site's directory) and then updated Craft from the command line (.\ craft update all). I can now access the admin page and successfully login, but I am still getting errors trying to access the actual site's home page (or any page other than the admin page).

HTTP 404 – Not Found – yii\web\NotFoundHttpException Template not found: login

All my templates are located here...(according to Finder) /Users/myname/Documents/Websites/mysite/templates/index.twig

Where should I start?

I am presuming Craft 3 because of composer, but you didn't say.

To start with look in your craft templates folder. I would suggest that you simply don't have the template that Craft is looking for.

If you visit the root of your site this is normally templates/index.twig make sure this is present and has no further includes in it (just until you get it working)

Also try looking in storage/logs/web.log for errors.

  • Yep. Craft 3. macOS Catalina. All my templates and my index.twig files are where they were.

  • @Hellyar did you run migrations ? Not that I think that would cause those errors. What happens on your index page (site root)? What do the logs say ? Sep 26, 2019 at 13:31
  • No, I did not run migrations. Error on index page is can't find layout

  • Twig Template Loading Error – craft\web\twig\TemplateLoaderException Unable to find the template “_layout” in "index" at line 1. But it is where it should be
