Am new in Magento, I'm using Magento 1.8 and local server Xampp. I was migrating my Magento store Live Server to localhost. After migrating some error are defining.

  1. When i try to login admin enterd this link http//127.0.01/magento/admin or click front-end store menu it automatically move to
  2. admin panel username and password correct but not redirect to dashboard.

In databse am changed core_config_data that are following

  • web/unsecure/base_url as
  • web/secure/base_url as

And clear all cache files in var/cache folder and session files var/session folder. Then local.xml changed dbname, username, password.

How can i solve this errors.

Please check your .htaccess file

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /ramesh/mirror-white/
    RewriteRule ^api/rest api.php?type=rest [QSA,L]
    #RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    #RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    RewriteRule .* index.php [L]

RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


RewriteRule .* index.php [L]

  • You mean replace this code in .htaccess file RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
