CMS install 404 error


I’ve attempted an install on Linux but I’m running into a problem when trying to install the CMS. I’ve installed Ubuntu, Apache2, MySQL and PHP5. When I navigate to my server name the apache2 default web page appears, however when I use the same address but with the xibo folder name ie “servername/xibo-server” I get a 404 error.

I’ve downloaded the CMS installation via firefox in Ubuntu to get the latest version (xibo-cms-1.7.4.tar.gz) and then extracted it to the /var/www directory. I have also enabled permissions for the web server, plus the library and relevant permissions. I’ve basically followed these instaructions but donwloaded the .gz file via a browser as I had problems with our proxy in the command line.

I’ve also tried using the exact same commands on my home linux machine (downloaded via command line) and have the same 404 issue.

Can anyone point out where I’m going wrong?


I have managed to find the way to fix this. It looks like the 14.04 Ubunto requires web sites to be within the /var/www/html not /var/www

Hopefully this may help someone.
