Just installed the Beta, it rocks.

But where the hell is the Admin folder? I tried searching for it but I ain’t got one. The installation went real smooth otherwise....

Hi Deivid,

Admin folder is virtual, try the http://your.domain/your/path/to/magento/admin.

Hi Deivid,

Admin folder is virtual, try the http://your.domain/your/path/to/magento/admin.

Nada. Still don’t work… Could this be because my path does not include a folder named “magento”? My path is just simply http://mydomain/path/store/

Is that a major mistake?

Maybe you guys are forgetting your extensions…

http://mydomain/store/admin wont work either.

http://mydomain.com/store/admin might work. =)

maybe http://www.mydomains.com/store/admin/

Unless you have some special .htaccess rule, I don’t think you can reference domain names with their proper extensions.

Alright alright alright.... Here’s how the path goes at the moment;

http://server.provider.com/~accntnr/store/

And believe me - I have tried admin/ in every possible way I could think of. But no success so far… What kinda pisses me off is that this is, again, one of those simple things I just can’t see. Later on when I find the solution, it’s gonna be so embarrassing.

EDIT: I’m still open for suggestions as to how to solve this small, yet critical problem. If anyone can shed light on this issue, it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks.

EDIT: [Jan. 16.] Anyone?

If you have directory browsing disabled, default document, maybe?

Good to know I’m not the only one with this. My opinion is that this is just not your usual “can’t find admi!” dilemma. I think… There’s something more to this guys, I’m telling ya.

My guess is that because the url is not yet directed to the actual domain (where it will later on) at this point so it’s causing all this.

@Yossi M: it’s looking for file /home/fastweb7/public_html/magento/index.php - can you make sure it is a correct path?

I changed the permission of the files after updated. The frontend is working fine. The backend requires security cert. When I click yes, it appears page not found. Why is this happening to me?

Try this: Where you have “magento/admin/” replace it with “magento/index.php/admin/”.  I’ll bet it works for everyone who is having a problem.

I don’t think it should be set up that way, but I installed Magento on two systems. On one system, it’s the way it should be, but on the other, I have to put the “index.php/admin” syntax.  At some point, I’ll look into why, unless someone here who knows could save me the time.

index.php/admin is needed when mod_rewrite is not enabled.

That did the trick.  Thanks!
