When I try to login to the site the Authentication plugin gives me this exception: Login URL /cif/ did not match /cif., this is with wampserver in windows 10, the url is http://localhost/cif/, the route in routes.php is established with this code:
I’m sorry to be so insistent but I need to solve this issue as son as possible.
Answering to your comment that the site should point to http://localhost and not to http://localhost/cif/ in http://localhost is the index page of wampserver and when you créate the cakephp project with composer you put the directory where the cakephp files will be downloaded and in my case that directory is cif.
I need to test this site in local and then upload it to a server, so I will appreciate all the help you can give me and won’t annoy you any more
Its not about annoying me or any one else in here. Its more about the fact that you need to learn how to google your problems instead of posting your problems in support forums so other people are solving the problems for you. Thats a very important thing to learn as a developer in general since no one can know everything (and thats fine).
CakePHP expects you to configure your webserver correctly - meaning (as I explained above) that the docroot of your application is set to the webroot folder of cakephp. This is also mentioned in the documentation.
In your case you are installing cakephp via composer create-project cakephp/app cif inside the default docroot of Wampserver.
This of course leads to a URL of http://localhost/cif because wampserver just lists whatever is listed in the given folder and cakephp’s root directory has a index.php which is one of the default files to display for a webserver.
But as you can see in the linked index.php file all it does is load the webroot/index.php.
So you know have 2 options:
adjust your webserver to point to the correct folder so you have clean URL’s with the cif part
adjust cakephp’s config so it knows it lives inside a subfolder and not in the docroot (which comes with its own sort of problems)
