Joomla 4 on php version 7.0

Post by noncomposmentis » Tue Sep 03, 2019 3:55 am

Okay, I was trying to run Joomla! 4 on localhost with php version 7.0, wholly knowing that it is less than the minimum required version.

As expected, Joomla! 4 threw up an error right away. But the thing I wanted to report is: On the landing error page, Joomla! 4 provides me with a link to a page that does not exist, a 404 page.

I think this is some simple thing that developers overlooked. Just thought I should report this somewhere.

If this behavior is also present in the Joomla 4 Alpha 11 while using the recommended PHP 7.2 or higher,
then could you please report it at ?
