    Default Admin 404 Not Found The requested URL was not found on this server

    I'm just testing and making a 1.5.0 site for a friend who hopefully will use This for her new business. I've ran Zen before, but ran into a problem this time. After removing the zc files, and renaming admin... I can't access it. I can get into the catalog area no problem.. not the newly renamed admin area. Any ideas?

    I get the following:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /gmadmin was not found on this server.

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

    I only added the gm as that is the persons initials... figured it was easy enough. Maybe the admin is not supposed to be any part of the name?

    Are you really installed on a Windows server?

    You may have a point, I just checked on HostMonster, looks as it may be Linux

    404 is pretty specific - that path doesn't exist. If you look at your folders and files with your FTP program is the /gpadmin folder there ?

    I think gpadmin is allowed, but you should probably choose something that's harder to guess.

    I will change it all eventually, Once she decides if she wants to go with the site or not. In a nutshell, she's done this product before, but it got to be more than she could handle. She's regrouping it again, because after 5 years she is still getting requests.

    What I did... since it's a fresh start, is removed everything.... I let HostMonster Install ZenCart, and I want to update the current 1.3.9h version it installed to v150. Is that a good thought? or did I big time?

    No. It doesn't make any sense to install an outdated version, then go through the hassle of updating it, when you can just install the latest version manually.

    There's a pretty easy-to-follow installation instructions file in the /docs folder of the Zencart zip file.

    I found that out... going through it all again, I tried, everything still indicated it was v1.3.9h. Guess it's a good thing I'm out of work, and have nothing but time huh :)

    K... I'm back where I started.

    I deleted both previous installs. I even did a registry repair/reboot.. Just in case.

    I FTP'd everything to a directory named catalog.

    I can get to the catalog without a hitch.

    When I attempt going to the /catalog/zc_install ( or any variation of that ) I again get the 'Oops! This link appears to be broken.' tag, depending on which browser I use...they vary.

    I've tried with and without the http prefix, with & without www. It just won't allow access to anything but the catalog. This time I've not even gotten to the installer, where I input info. Any thoughts?

    Not a good day to quit smoking.
