Help! 404 Not Found error

Post by 1412 »

I just installed phpbb 2.x on my server. Whenever I try to login it says that:

Code: Select all

Not Found

The requested URL /admin/login.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I've checked it and there is no login.php under admin folder. But this came directly from the installation files from this site. Is it originally missing and if so what do I have to do? Any help greatly appreciated, thanks!

Please fill in the Support Request Template to tell us about your board.

If you are just installing a new board, you should think about installing phpBB3 instead. Support for phpBB2 ceases at the end of this year.

you are right, there is not supposed to be a login.php file in the admin folder and there is not.

why are you trying to access it there?

OK, I figured out the problem, the script path that I used was pointing to the wrong one. Thanks for all your help guys! I really appreciate it.
