I have made a e-commerce website in magento and made it live. The website is ok but when i am typing the admin url, it is showing 404 error. Can anyone say how to solve this error ?

  • When we are moving the website to live from a demo server, what all changes are to be done in the database to get the website and admin of the website. – lena Oct 29 '16 at 5:53

  • Are you able to access admin through index.php, I mean try to access admin using http://yourweb.com/index.php/admin/ if its accessible then you need to verify rewrite module of your server. – Jayesh Patel Oct 29 '16 at 6:49

Have you tried running the SQL query ?

select * from core_config_data where path like '%custom_path%';

At First, Please clear all cache, from /var folder.

Then Please check your configuration file ( app/etc/local.xml) and make sure that you have "admin" as value in frontName node.


Then please go to phpmyadmin go to core_config_data table then search the path for web/secure/use_in_adminhtml ( use operator - 'LIKE %...%') after finding this field set the value from 1 to 0

(value form 1 to 0 , actually allow non-secure access to the admin).

Please do this also let me know.
