Unable to access back end of localhost

Post by kenny2gcn » Thu May 23, 2019 12:28 pm

I moved my live site to local server and changed both $path and $temp but
cannot access http://localhost/administrator

Not Found
The requested URL /administrator was not found on this server.
Apache/2.4.37 (Win64) PHP/7.2.14 Server at localhost Port 80

Please do you have solution to this?

Is your joomla site in the root or a sub directory?

https://docs.joomla.org/Copying_a_Joomla_website#Akeeba
And select to use the standard htaccess when you install the backup

Also suggest you use Wamp localhost and create a folder in Wamp's \www folder
