I installed magento 2 in a directory jle2.aaefe.org and got it working with the addons etc I needed. to go live I rename the directory to jle.aaefe.org. I change the URLs in the system setup and the frontend is now working fine. I cannot access the admin page now. When I type in the url for the admin page I get

"Whoops, our bad... The page you requested was not found, and we have a fine guess why. If you typed the URL directly, please make sure the spelling is correct. If you clicked on a link to get here, the link is outdated."

The frontend is working fine I just need to get to the admin panel. I am not a programmer so any help is greatly appreciated

  • check env.php inside app/etc/env.php 'backend' => [ 'frontName' => 'admin' ], add in url what is added on your frontName Commented Nov 22, 2021 at 4:21
  • I looked at that file and the info was 'backend' => ['frontName' => 'admin123'], which is what I used to get to the admin panel before the directory was renamed. I also tried 'backend' => ['frontName' => 'jle.aaefe.org/admin123'], but that did not work either.

If not then correct it and second check admin frontname in app/etc/env.php file so at the end final url should be base_url + admin frontname that is:


Hit this url in browser you will see admin login page.
