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 ?
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.
<adminhtml> <args> <frontName><![CDATA[admin]]></frontName> </args> </adminhtml>
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.
