Thanks for helping me with my htaccess issue before and I hope you can help me once more.

A little background, I am attempting to have my local machine and staging mimic the production site.

I have been able to make the local machine work perfectly and I was on my way to do the same for the staging server.

I had logged into the site dev.example.com/system and I was configuring everything to point to dev.example.com, instead of the production site - www.example.com

After submitting the Admin> General Configuration - I briefly saw a prompt about config, but somehow it disappeared before I read.

Now, going into system looks like an html file that is missing a css file - like a directory tree.

Firebug in firefox is showing that it can not find items in the themes folder.

"NetworkError: 404 Not Found - http://dev.example.com/themes/cp_themes/default/css/jquery-ui-1.8.16.custom.css?v=1400856569"

jquery...0856569

"NetworkError: 404 Not Found - http://dev.example.com/themes/cp_themes/default/css/global.css?v=1400856569"

global...0856569

 "NetworkError: 404 Not Found - http://dev.example.com/themes/javascript/compressed/jquery/jquery.js?v=1400856579"

jquery...0856579

etc...

Any ideas - thanks in advance

  • You would benefit from installing FocusLab's Master Config. It will allow you to maintain multiple environments using configuration variables rather than updating settings manually in the database. – kmgdev May 29 '14 at 23:54
  • Have you checked for the presence of the file in the error? – stuartmcd69 May 30 '14 at 4:17
  • Yeah, all the files are there, which leads me to believe that I must have typed in a bad path to the themes. Without being able to use example.com/system, can you tell which tables or files I can update the correct information? – kronus May 30 '14 at 14:21
  • I was still able to click on Admin> General Configuration link which showed a very basic form, when I entered the correct path, I was once again told that I had to set the config.php to 666, which I did and everything is fine. Thanks guys - I am a true newbie to ExpressionEngine - thanks for being there – kronus May 30 '14 at 15:07

As I said in my comments:
