If you're trying to access the Magento 2 admin panel and you're getting a 404 error, don't worry - you're not alone. This is a common issue that can be fixed by following a few simple steps.
What causes the 404 error?
The 404 error is caused by a mismatch between the store ID in the Magento database and the URL you're using to access the admin panel. This can happen if you've recently migrated your Magento database to a new server or if you've made changes to your store configuration.
How to fix the 404 error
To fix the 404 error, you need to update the store ID in the Magento database to match the URL you're using to access the admin panel. You can do this by following these steps:
- Log in to your MySQL database.
- Run the following SQL query:
SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0; UPDATE store SET store_id = 0 WHERE code='admin'; UPDATE store_group SET group_id = 0 WHERE name='Default'; UPDATE store_website SET website_id = 0 WHERE code='admin'; UPDATE customer_group SET customer_group_id = 0 WHERE customer_group_code='NOT LOGGED IN'; SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=1;
Save your changes and exit MySQL.
Clear the Magento cache.
Once you've completed these steps, you should be able to access the Magento admin panel without any problems.
Additional troubleshooting steps
If you're still getting a 404 error after following the steps above, you can try the following troubleshooting steps:
- Check the spelling of the URL you're using to access the admin panel.
- Make sure that you're using the correct IP address or domain name for your Magento website.
- Try accessing the admin panel from a different browser.
- If you're still having problems, you can contact Magento support for help.
I hope this helps!
