This now makes a full week that I’ve been trying to get a vaguely working instance of Mautic. After initially installing through my CPanel, I spent days putting out a few fires with not being able to create emails, then not able to create landing pages, only to come across a seemingly insurmountable problem of not being able to create forms. I tried asking here, but no joy.
So, today, I dowloaded the source, and spent all this afternoon and evening uploading it to my server. I created the database, and successfully got through the initial stages of creating user and filling in e-mail transport details. Now I immediately have the 404 error. Something to do with default index.php and mod_rewrite, I guess. Whatever. I have to give this away. I’m not going down yet another rabbit hole. It’s a shame. I really, really wanted this to work, but the definition of insanity and all that…
Now, this is a developer of over twenty years’ experience, and I can’t get Mautic working in any fashion after a week of trying. There’s something wrong with that picture.
For my sanity, I have to delete all from my server, and look elsewhere. Maybe I’ll just have to write the functionality I need myself. Hell, I could have done quite a bit of it already in the time I’ve wasted this week.
