I installed using SVN method. I’m not sure if that’s the correct method I should use.

The admin panel back-end, works great. All the links work.

The front end returns a 404 error page when you click on ANY and ALL links:

http://www.swiftglobal.com/~swiftink/

Any idea why this is happening?

1) do you have mod_rewrite enabled?
2) is the category enabled? did you pick the right store view?

Which package did you download from Magento? Was it the FULL VERSION or the INSTALLER-ONLY VERSION?

1) do you have mod_rewrite enabled?

As noted above, your rewrite probably isn’t working since your /admin path doesn’t redirect and require the /index.php/admin path.

I downloaded the Beta 0.8.16100 preview version from the main magento homepage. It didn’t seem to offer me a full version or installer-only version.

I contacted my host about mod_rewrite. Here is their response.

mod_rewrite is enabled for all websites on the server.

php4 runs as a module or mod_php while php5 runs as a CGI or phpsuexec. There are differences in how mod_rewrite is able work with these.

So it seems the mod_rewrite is ok according to them. Why am I getting these 404 error and issues with this?

there is still something wrong with your mod_rewrite but i dont know what it is.

check this link out: http://www.swiftglobal.com/~swiftink/index.php/brother

that loads up fine. you’re gonna have to either disable clean urls for now (forget how offhand) or find out what the issue is

@Liguidsoul: what is the absolute disk path to magento’s index.php ?

/home/swiftink/public_html/index.php

Does it matter that I haven’t transferred the domain in for this cPanel account? I’m using the above domain with the ~swiftink after it since I cannot transfer my domain until website is ready to go.

The same thing happened when I did the update.

Maybe it’s a problem with your .haccess file?

I always have to re-replace the file after an install.

Uploaded a fresh .htaccess file. It still did not solve the issue.

I also have to add these to the .htaccess file since my server has both php4 and php5 installed. This way it forces these directories to use php5.

## enable php5
AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .php
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php

Ack, nobody seems to know how to solve this issue! :(

Update: Problem solved. The mod_rewrite is not working because I haven’t transferred the cPanel domain into this host. I’m using a temporary URL from the main domain, and that was causing the problem.

My site is located at
http://www.fantasycity.com.au/magento

I have problem with the frontend… and it prompts me a message with the network shared SSL certificate…

so.. to resolve my problem.. i guess that i need to ask my host to install SSL cert at my domain…
wish that this is right…

I had this same problem - using the included sample .htaccess file fixed it (but I had to add a php5 handler because my hosting company has both php4 and php5 installed but uses php4 by default without specifying to use php5 in the .htaccess)
