    How are you running the web server? I noticed in your screen cap that "not secure" is shown in Chrome on the front end but when you view the backend it goes away. Is SSL actually configured for that test site? May 5, 2022 at 15:10
  • @RitterKnight I run it locally with apache. No SSL is configured locally.

  • @RitterKnight Looks like the page is initially xospa.test. And then turns into xospa.test/admin/dashboard. I do not know how to prevent adding https locally.

  • @RitterKnight I mean turns into https://xospa.test/admin/dashboard.

You're likely receiving this error due to a problem with your Apache configuration.

A likely scenario is you're missing the .htaccess file or it could have an error. You should check your Apache logs and troubleshoot any errors you find.

This knowledge base article may also prove helpful in ensuring your Apache configuration and config is setup to correctly run Craft.

  • Nope, web/.htaccess is on its place and matches the recommendations.
