I operated according to the instructions for Sendy installation:
/* MySQL database connection credentials (please place values between the apostrophes) */
$dbHost = 'localhost'; //MySQL Hostname
$dbUser = 'xxxxx_root'; //MySQL Username
$dbPass = xxxxxx'; //MySQL Password
$dbName = xxxxx_sendy'; //MySQL Database Name
the DB was created with the above credentials and the $dbuser got full admin permissions to the DB.
I also supplied the URL and email as required.
.htaccess was uploaded with the RewriteEngine On.
I always get 404 error on login.
I have applied the configuration checking with the following results:
Your PHP version is 5.6.17
mysqli extension is installed
mod_rewrite is not enabled
display_errors is turned off
hash is enabled
curl is enabled
gettext is enabled
curl_exec is enabled
curl_multi_exec is enabled
I checked with my hosting provider and he assured me that mod_rewrite is enabled. (I am sure it is - no problems with my other websites on this host)
I continuously get 404 error on login.
I moved my Sendy installation to be in a subdomain. Now the result is a loop. The program tries to redirect in a loop.
I logged in to your server with the FTP credentials you've provided and check the .htaccess file on your /sendy/ directory and saw that it is not Sendy's .htaccess file. You've replaced it with something else.
I restored the .htaccess to Sendy's original .htaccess file and it's working now.
Don't modify any of Sendy's code or replace any of Sendy's scripts with something else.
Thanks a lot Ben!
