Joomla Cassiopeia 4.2.5 404 Not Found error

Post by blackorphan » Sun Dec 04, 2022 1:27 pm

I have search for this and any articles pertaining to this is years old and with the upgrades and new versions I thought to add this topic to get support.


I'm to described as best as I can how I think this started. The previous site kept adding index.php at the end of the url I looked up how to removed that and messed something us. So I deleted the whole site and started over again. Before adding new links I followed these steps to remove the index.php https://www.balbooa.com/knowledgebase/3 ... -in-joomla

Now when I go to the page on the site found an

1: https://poeticrecoveryradio.com site shows up no issues.

The issues comes when I am going to pages on the site such as.

2:https://poeticrecoveryradio.com/ads I get the error

"The requested URL was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

Thank you for any support.

So I contact my host, they usually are not that helpful with softaculous scripts. However, they managed to help fix the issues. There was a htaccess.text and a .htaccess file. I opened up the .htaccess file and it had joomla stuff in so I didn't think i would have to edit it. When they responded they stated they.

"I reviewed the matter and managed to fix it by setting up a default Joomla .htaccess file for your poeticrecoveryradio.com project."

I told them there was already a .htaccess file present with Joomla coding so I thought it was for Joomla, I will responded by with further information as they get back to me hoping it can help someone in the future. I'm still trying to understand why the original file didn't work.

That's why we don't recommend using host's install scripts. Download Joomla from joomla.org and install properly. Your next problem will be when updates do not work.
