I am new to Magento and trying to install it myself but can't see it working after installing it successfully.

I followed Amazon instructions and installed PHP56, MySQL 5.7 & phpMyAdmin and then followed the following steps to install Magento 2.1 CE:

sudo su

vi /etc/php.ini ?always_populate_raw_post_data I always_populate_raw_post_data = -1 :wq service httpd restart sudo yum install php56-intl –y service httpd restart mkdir /var/www/html/magento2ce upload magento tar file to /var/www/html/magento2ce and unzip using tar command cd /var/www/html/magento2ce tar zxf Magento-CE-2.1.1-2016-08-29-06-31-39.tar.gz And before installation I used following command to assign permissions to magento folders: cd /var/www/html/magento2ce && find var vendor pub/static pub/media app/etc -type f -exec chmod g+w {} \; && find var vendor pub/static pub/media app/etc -type d -exec chmod g+ws {} \; && chown -R :apache . && chmod u+x bin/magento

And after all that I stared Setup Wizard which ran successfully.

But nothing works when I try to access front/backend.

Can any one please let me what I am missing here?

Try to change the root path in your magento vhost file to /var/www/magento2/pub , where /var/www/magento2 is your magento 2 installation path.

1- Modify the app/etc/di.xml file by changing the following content:




2- Remove cahce from the cache folder

sudo rm -rf /var/www/html/magento2ce/var/cache/

3- sudo php /var/www/html/magento2ce/bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

  • Hi Hari, above command worked this time but I still can't see the front-end fully working and back-end is still throwing 404 error, following are the links: ec2-54-194-66-114.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com/magento2ce, ec2-54-194-66-114.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com/magento2ce/… Oct 5, 2016 at 20:48
