I installed Magento with the sample data. Now when I open any page of the site is returned to me an error like this:

not Found
The requested URL / magento / customer / account / was not found on this server.

For all links on the homepage of the site.

How can I fix the problem?

I had a similar problem. For me, it was NOT a fresh installation. It was a copy made for development. While copying, the .htaccess file was not copied. So, I copied it. This fixed the problem.


I think there is some problem with your htaccess file.

For temporary you can add index.php and check whether this working or not.

and after that you can do below step and your

login admin panel

go to system->configuration->general->web->Search Engines Optimization->

and set Use Web Server Rewrites to no

clear cache and try again

After reindexing

 php indexer.php --reindexall 


And flushing Magento cache (backend) your store will be working but with /index.php/ after your domain

It seems it has to do with rewrites and SSL (community.magento.com)
