Apologies for the noob question.

Just wanted to try October out but after successful installation I find I have no admin area when I select the following link http://localhost/projects/October/install-master/backend

If you're using October inside of a subfolder then you need to add the path it lives in to https://github.com/octobercms/october/blob/develop/.htaccess#L13

Hi Luke, thanks for the reply. Turned out I needed to use the following path http://localhost/projects/October/index.php/backend

Should I be editing the .htaccess file though and if so where?

Thanks

Try replacing that line I linked above with RewriteBase /projects/October/ and then you should be able to access it without the index.php in the path (so http://localhost/projects/October/backend)

Thanks Luke. I thought that might be the case. I've added the following RewriteBase /projects/October/ on Line 13 but still have to use index.php.

Strange

Thanks

Installed October fine on another laptop and works ok as far as I can see. Must be an issue on the other laptop. Will need to check why. But at least I'm up and running
