When we install Magento 1.9 it shows: There has been an error processing your request Invalid backend name. How do i fix this?

enter image description here

  • In app/etc/local.xml please check <admin> <routers> <adminhtml> <args> <frontName><![CDATA[admin]]></frontName> </args> </adminhtml> </routers> </admin> – Riddhish Bhayani Jul 5 '17 at 6:31

I have already faced this issue. In your app/etc/ folder other than local.xml some backup file in end with .xml file. you can change delete that file.

  • app/etc/folder local.xml.additional.xml or local.xml.template .xml file available not local.xml – gaganbafna Jul 5 '17 at 7:27
  • create local.xml file and configure and remove local.xml.additional.xml it will work – Rama Chandran M Jul 5 '17 at 7:29

This looks like a misconfigured local.xml for cache backend

Edit local.xml

Remove all code between and the cache tags



Then delete contents of var/cache/ folder in Magento.
