I just migrated a Magento2 site from a cloud server to my localhost to do some developer work on. I have everything I need installed and ready to go. I am just trying to redirect the Base-URls. I have already went into the command line and redirected both base and secure urls like this.

php bin/magento setup:store-config:set --base-url="http://localhost/upperlimitsinc/"

After changing the url I checked PHPMyAdmin and it shows that it has changed but when I go to the site url I get a 404 and not from Magento. Everything is running on MAMP.

404 ERROR: The requested URL /upperlimitsinc/ was not found on this server.

  • Ok I figured this out. I need to change my URL to url="localhost/httpd" file path. I have the Store working now. However, for admin panel I do not have working. I am getting localhost refuses to connect.

After update your base url from your local, you need to run: php bin/magento setup:upgrade


use instead of localhost.

Maybe this link help you feather - How to fix Magento 2 2.0.0-RC Admin page not found after installation and https://magecomp.com/blog/fix-404-error-page-not-found-admin-url-magento-2/



Ok after spending so much time trying to figure this out. This is what I did.

  1. Changed the url to the correct file path. http://localhost/httpdocs/
  2. Went to phpMy Admin and changed core_config_data table configIDS: 1. rewrites, 5.frontend and 6.adminhtml to 0.
  3. run php/bin magento setup:upgrade
  4. run php/bin magento setup:dicompile
  5. Delete all folders under pub/static Delete var/cache Delete var/composer_home Delete var/generation Delete var/page_cache Delete var/view_preprocesse
  6. run php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy.

And that worked.
