My dashboard is gone.

Permalink 1 user found helpful
I've tried logging into my site/index.php/dashboard. I log in and get Page Not Found. No page could be found at this address. Back to Home.

If I click back to home I get the first page of my website and none of the links work and I get 404 errors. My webhost is not able to help.

Please help. It took me the entire day to create the website and not it appears to be gone.

Thanks

So you do get the login page?

What happens when you go to
www.example.com/index.php


Did you recently turn on Pretty URLS?

Hi,
I log in and get Page Not Found. No page could be found at this address. Back to Home.

I did mess with the pretty url but I didn't know what I was doing and I thought I got out of there without making any changes.

Ok. After you log in and get the 404 error. Got to
http://www.example.com/index.php/dashboard


If you can get to that then go to
Sitewide Settings->Linking and uncheck "Enable Pretty URLs" and click save.

Let me know if that works, then we'll try to get pretty urls set up again.

I wish I could get that far. I can't get in at all no matter what I try. I've tried admin and index.php and I just get page not found. I'm surprised that I can even get the first page of my website.

By the way the 404 errors come when I try to click on one of my links from my home page.

This link does work.

This is because the Pretty URLs is turned on but the Rewrite Rule in the htaccess file is not working. The above dashboard link should work if you are already logged in.

The dashboard doesn't use pretty urls so you should be safe once you get there.

When I try that link, and log in, I get page not found.
angelsing replied on at Permalink Reply
yes the e-liquid page is working. What should I do now?

Do you have ftp access? There is a file in there named .htaccess. You need to change one line.

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


to

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


and see if that helps.

Hi,
Could I get to the file from my control panel with my host? If so can you tell me the path?
angelsing replied on at Permalink Reply
I found the .htaccess file and there are only 2 lines in there and neither is a rewrite rule.

could you place a # in front of those two line to comment them out to see if they are having an effect?

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php/$1 [L]
</IfModule>


My host entered this code and now my links are working, but I still have no dashboard, and I went in and removed the parentheses like you suggested.

# Use PHP5 Single php.ini as default
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5s .php

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php/$1 [L]
</IfModule>

This is a little outside of my range at this point. Try putting the parenthesis back on. I think it may have to do with path_info but that is a guess. Maybe you could ask your host about that?

Ok, thanks for trying.
