404 Error on new WordPress site installation

Good day all please I have an issue with my WordPress install, I install a new WordPress site on my cypberpanel but instead of showing the default WordPress page, it keeps showing a 404 error page.

And I don’t know what’s the issue is, Please I need your help to resolve this issue.

Hello @victornzekwu

This is an issue unrelated to CyberPanel however he is what you try:

  1. Change your .htaccess because it might be a .htaccess misconfiguration
# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# END WordPress

Also restore the permissions of your .htaccess file to 0644

  1. Plugins might cause this. Try disable all plugins and try again
  2. Disable modsecurity and try again (last resort)
  3. Disable cache plugin or clear cache from the plugin’s settings

Finally run in ssh terminal sudo systemctl restart lsws
