No frontend and backend after installation

No frontend and backend after installation



Managed to install Magento 2.4.3. During the install it did return a few (error) messages, such as:


Reading /var/www/vhosts/
Loading config file /var/www/vhosts/
Failed to initialize global composer: Composer could not find the config file: /var/www/vhosts/
To initialize a project, please create a composer.json file as described in the "Getting Started" section

However, it did return a success message at the end.

[Progress: 1386 / 1386]
[SUCCESS]: Magento installation complete.
Nothing to import.


Despite the fact that it says that the Magento installation is complete and successful, I can not access my admin link, nor my frontend link.


The frontend page gives me a 403 error:IIRZGQR








my gives me something, but not something good (Plain text, no CSS): 


My admin link my returns a 404. 


Any idea on how I can fix this?

Re: No frontend and backend after installation

If you redeployed it after deleting the pub/static directory you would have deleted the .htaccess file in the pub/static directory. That causes the URL Rewrite issue. Putting the .htaccess with URL rewrite option in the pub/static directory will resolve the problem.

It might be possible that the issue is arriving because of the file permission issue.
Please run the the setup upgrade and deploy command and then run the below SSH command:

chmod -R 777 var pub/static generated/
