404 not found error for admin page

I installed Magento successfully, but the Admin page gives error: 404 not found. Please suggest a solution for this.

The following is the error:

404 Not Found

nginx/1.10.0 (Ubuntu)


For Linux edit the file /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

To edit this file use sudo vi /etc/apache2/apache2.conf command

<Directory /var/www/>
     Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
     AllowOverride None
     Require all granted


<Directory /var/www/>
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted

After this run command

sudo service apache2 restart


1) Add .htaccess at root of magento 2


2) Now run this command

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

rm -rf var/cache/*

rm -rf var/generation/*

Please try Below steps

  1. Delete var/cache folder
  2. Go to database SELECT * FROM core_config_data WHERE path = 'web/seo/use_rewrites' and make it 0
  3. Then enter url in your browser magento_base_url/index.php/your_admin_url

try and let me know if you face any issue.

I also had this issue, it turned out one of my URLs was set to the IP address and not to the domain name so going to the {domain}/admin was returning not found.

Solution was to run

php bin/magento config:set web/secure/base_url https://domain.com/
php bin/magento config:set web/unsecure/base_url https://domain.com/

Don't forget the trailing slash, it will not work without it https://alanstorm.com/invalid-base-url-value-must-be-a-url-or-one-of/
