I need help on this if possible, I am a newbie to this, but I follow directions well. I recently purchased Vortex47 Cash Making Websites & in the manual it said to upload a website file to my FTP folder on my hosting site. I did that. I went in and changed the following folders config, db, files & lang as instructed and all files in each directory to the read,write & execute = 777, for permission. Then I was to go to my browser and type in my www.mydomain.com/admin.php to make the necessary changes with my affiliate codes. But every time I go to this page, I get an error message stating:

Not Found

The requested URL /admin.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an Error Document to handle the request.

I don't know what I am doing wrong up to this point. I need to see if anyone can give me some advice please on what I am doing wrong. I tried it twice with two different domains with the same error. It is linux based hosting. I know this is easy and simple, but I am missing something. Any suggestions?

Hi Boss,
Are you sure that admin.php isn't in another folder. Eg. www.mysite.com/vortex47/admin.php
You seem to have set the permissions properly, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks,
Taomech

I transferred all files from one niche folder to my domain in the public_ftp folder. So admin.php, index.php etc is all included in that folder.

Web files would not belong in the public ftp directory. You need to determine where the files go for your web service. You can put a simple index.html file and see if you can access that. Your provider should have documentation as to where the files need to go.

Thanks for the note. Per the manual instructions on set-up, I was to DL all files to the ftp folder, then change the permissions levels on (4) of them, then I would be able to access my admin.php area to make further changes. Then I would move the index.html file to the public_html folder for viewing. But I keep getting the 404 Not Found Error Document Message when I try to access my admin area. That's the problem I am having.

Boss,
I would do what Kemasa says, as that seems like it could be your problem. Transfer the files into a folder called public_html or htdocs.
Then try accessing the page again.

Thanks,
Taomech

On a side note chmod 777 is a bad bad idea. If the server(and script) is configured properly 755 should work just fine.

I did get it to work properly so thanks for the advice. I will try this out too!
