New installation of Mautic redirects to File Not Found - 404

We’ve recently installed Mautic on Ubuntu 16 at the location



/var/www/html/website.com/subdomains/mautic/httpdocs



We successfully went through the default Mautic installation procedure.



Now when we try to access



mautic.website.com we are redirected to mautic.website.com/s/dashboard, and, we get a File Not Found 404 error.



However, when I manually input ‘index.php’ into the url, mautic.website.com/index.php/s/dashboard, everything works perfectly. In fact, navigating around within the Mautic app, all links contain index.php. It’s not until we log out again that there is a problem.



What could be causing this? We’re using Apache2, 2.4.18 to be exact, and mod_rewrite is working fine, Require all granted is configured for the root directory for mautic, and I have not altered .htaccess at all from it’s default. (below is the .htaccess file contents as setup by the installation process)



What could be causing this issue and how do I fix it?



Thanks! Please let me know any other information you need that may be helpful!

Code:
# Use the front controller as index file. It serves as a fallback solution when # every other rewrite/redirect fails (e.g. in an aliased environment without # mod_rewrite). Additionally, this reduces the matching process for the # start page (path "/") because otherwise Apache will apply the rewriting rules # to each configured DirectoryIndex file (e.g. index.php, index.html, index.pl). # DirectoryIndex index.php RewriteEngine On
# Set Authorization header for OAuth1a for when php is running under fcgi
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Authorization} .+
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

# Determine the RewriteBase automatically and set it as environment variable.
# If you are using Apache aliases to do mass virtual hosting or installed the
# project in a subdirectory, the base path will be prepended to allow proper
# resolution of the app.php file and to redirect to the correct URI. It will
# work in environments without path prefix as well, providing a safe, one-size
# fits all solution. But as you do not need it in this case, you can comment
# the following 2 lines to eliminate the overhead.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}::$1 ^(/.+)/(.*)::2$
RewriteRule ^(.*) - [E=BASE:%1]

# Redirect to URI without front controller to prevent duplicate content
# (with and without `/app.php`). Only do this redirect on the initial
# rewrite by Apache and not on subsequent cycles. Otherwise we would get an
# endless redirect loop (request -> rewrite to front controller ->
# redirect -> request -> ...).
# So in case you get a "too many redirects" error or you always get redirected
# to the start page because your Apache does not expose the REDIRECT_STATUS
# environment variable, you have 2 choices:
# - disable this feature by commenting the following 2 lines or
# - use Apache >= 2.3.9 and replace all L flags by END flags and remove the
#   following RewriteCond (best solution)
RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_STATUS} ^$
RewriteRule ^index.php(/(.*)|$) %{ENV:BASE}/$2 [R=301,L]

# If the requested filename exists, simply serve it.
# We only want to let Apache serve files and not directories.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f
RewriteRule .? - [L]

# Rewrite all other queries to the front controller.
RewriteRule .? %{ENV:BASE}/index.php [L]

<IfModule !mod_rewrite.c>

# When mod_rewrite is not available, we instruct a temporary redirect of
# the start page to the front controller explicitly so that the website
# and the generated links can still be used.
RedirectMatch 302 ^(?!/(index.php|index_dev.php|app|addons|plugins|media|upgrade))(/(.*))$ /index.php$2
# RedirectTemp cannot be used instead

We successfully went through the default Mautic installation procedure.

Now when we try to access

mautic.website.com we are redirected to mautic.website.com/s/dashboard, and, we get a File Not Found 404 error.

However, when I manually input ‘index.php’ into the url, mautic.website.com/index.php/s/dashboard, everything works perfectly. In fact, navigating around within the Mautic app, all links contain index.php. It’s not until we log out again that there is a problem.

Hello!
I have the same problem until Microsoft IIS.
Can you post instructions how to make the same for IIS?
