ez publish can't access admin interface

Wednesday 15 March 2017 5:15:05 pm - 3 replies

Hi all,

I'm new on the forum and with ez publish 5.x.

I'm trying to install the ez Publish CMS for a futur project. I'm going through the installation without much issues, I can access the welcome page of the CMS on this url: using a virtual machine with debian/apache/php5.6/mysql (rewrite enabled), but I can't access the admin interface, I tried '' as it's explained in documentation but I get a 404 error.

I have no error logs on the server and the application seems to be working. I'm a beginner with this CMS so I really don't see why it doesn't work.

I followed this installation tutorial: , as you will see I'm using composer in my installation. I had no error during the installation steps, does anyone had this problem before?

It will be great if someone can share a solution, I won't be able to do much with the CMS if I can't even log in...

I've already posted on stack overflow:

Found a solution!

Seems there is a need for big configuration in the virtual host... I found a vhost template in the doc and using it resolved my problem.

Hello Braley,

Welcome to the eZ Community!

You should certainly check the built-in symfony logs for your env and tail them while trying to load the PlatformUI to see just what is going wrong in real time.

I also think you should enable apache logs for your virtual host to also tail them to review in detail what is going on. Is this a webserver error or an application error, you know.

I did a clean install just the other day so I'm fairly confident it does work (the underlying code when setup correctly).

I hope this helps!

Hi Health,

Thanks for your reply, I was editing my post just when you were writting your post.

As you will see, it was a simple mistake, I had no example of vhost when installing and going through all the folders I just found what I needed.
