What is the best way to troubleshoot the CMS?

Hello

 

I installed Magento 1.9.1.0 CE on a Fedora 20 linux machine.

Apparently went O.K., the backend shows and is operable but the frontend links are broken, i.e click "About Us" = 404

Same for the other sections, even with the sample data, installation appears to be good but when I try to visit the sections of the sample store says the document does not exist.

I also tried creating new content in the CMS but gives me the same 404 when I preview the content.

 

What is the best way to troubleshoot this kind of situation?

 

Regards.

Re: What is the best way to troubleshoot the CMS?

The problem is your .htaccess file and/or your URL rewrites. 

 

Try putting index.php inbetween you page and your domain.

 

If you have a domain like this http://mydomain.com/aboutus.html

 

try the following:

 

http://mydomain.com/index.php/aboutus.html

 

You should see that it is working and you need to either enable mod_rewrites or make sure you vhost has then enabled or you need to add a .htaccess file. (Or all of the above!)
