I’m running a Modx 2.7.3 on XAMPP 3.2.2 on my local machine. I’ve also copied the website over to a remote website and been able to set it up thanks to the documentation online.
I’m seeing a peculiar problem and i can’t find any similar cases online.
I’m experiencing 404 errors when trying to access the website (not using FURL’s) just IP address and server directory http://IP_ADDRESS/website_name
But I’m able to access the site as soon as I log into the manager via administrator user. Opening up a new tab and copy pasting above weblink (as above) in the window and the site is perfectly accessible, user can log in.
So the address http://IP_ADDRESS/website_name/manager is accessible all the time. No problems there.
I’m using the Login plugin 1.9,9 for the website itself. So on first accessing website users arrive at the login resource page (in theory).
changing ht.access files in root, manager and core directories to .htaccess does not appear to change symptoms.
So in summary, user able to access the website and login so long as an administrator session is authenticated in the modx manager back end within the same browser on another tab. Otherwise, no administrator session in browser it’s a 404 error.
If anyone has any ideas, thanks in advance.
