The request URL /your-domain.tld/admin was not found on this server.

Check that the .htaccess file is present at the root of your installation.
If not, rename the .htaccess.txt file to .htaccess.

The request URL /index.php/en/admin/user/login was not found on this server.

Edit the .htaccess file and add or remove the comment before the RewriteBase / instruction.

RewriteEngine On

# The RewriteBase / instruction is commented. Remove the "#" to uncomment
# RewriteBase /

RewriteCond $1 !^(index.php|themes|install|files|modules|robots.txt)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]

Settings saving errors, no thumbnail creation...

Context: When you save settings or add some media to a content, an error message appears.

Solution: The server PHP user must have writing privileges on following folders and files:

  • /application/config/*
  • /themes/*
  • /files/*
  • /cache/*

Log on your server with SSH and execute the following commands :

chmod -R 0777 /<path_to_www>/application/config/
chmod -R 0777 /<path_to_www>/themes/
chmod -R 0777 /<path_to_www>/files/
chmod -R 0777 /<path_to_www>/cache/

"No input file specified"

Some server needs this specific configuration.
Modify the .htaccess line to add a ? after the index.php :

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?/$1 [L]

If something weird is happening with Ionize, you may want to activate logs to be able to find where the problem is coming from.

Edit your /application/config/config.php file and set

$config['log_threshold'] = 4;
