Admin UI not working, site working fine


Hi guys, need your help on this... After moving code etc from development environment to production we´ve got a weird problem, the admin UI doesn´t work at all. You can reach the login-page but it is missing all texts that can be translated.

After succesful login, I get a 404, 
404 Info:
Module: ManagedPipelineHandler
Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler
Handler: wildcard
Error Code 0x00000000

I can reach /EPiServer/CMS/Admin/Default.aspx, but that page looks really weird and throws a few errors, in the chrome console I get this: 
Uncaught ReferenceError: epi is not defined Default.aspx:50

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found) - http://filippa/ClientResources/ClientResources/Epi/Base/CMS.css

Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined Menu.aspx:80

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)


Any ideas guys? Accessrights? missing files? Config?

Did you move the VPP files as well? (and update the path in episerverframework.config). Sounds like you're missing the modules required to run EPiServer 7.

Did you manage to solve the problem Jens? I'm experiencing the same issue, trying to complete the same task as you.

Check if you have a folder named "Modules" in your vpp root, apparently you need just over 4000 files in said vpp folder for the edit and admin UI to work correctly.


Edit: To get a hold of the files, install a clean epi7 site using the deployment center and copy the modules folder from the vpp of that site.

Hello, was this resolved at all? I'm having the same problem, but with a fresh install on a server.

The head of the admin pages have this:

<script type="text/javascript">var dojoConfig = {"isDebug":false,"locale":"en-us","parseOnLoad":false,"async":true,"paths":{"epi/cms":"/rs/admin/CMS/1.0.431/ClientResources/EPi/Cms","epi/packaging":"/rs/admin/EPiServer.Packaging.UI/1.0.1092/ClientResources","epi":"/rs/admin/Shell/1.0.456/ClientResources/EPi","dgrid":"/rs/admin/Shell/1.0.456/ClientResources/lib/dgrid","put-selector":"/rs/admin/Shell/1.0.456/ClientResources/lib/put-selector","xstyle":"/rs/admin/Shell/1.0.456/ClientResources/lib/xstyle"},"ioPublish":true};</script>

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/my/admin/Shell/1.0.456/ClientResources/epi/themes/legacy/ShellCore.css" />

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/my/admin/Shell/1.0.456/ClientResources/epi/themes/legacy/DojoDashboardCompatibility.css" />

<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="../Util/Styles/ContextMenu.css" />

and it gives 404's for anything in /my/admin/shell, even the javascript files are giving 404s.

Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated. I have no idea how this would happen on a fresh install.

Thank you in advanced

I had this 404 error in the Admin section and managed to fix it with the following:

  • Install the correct version of Episerver for the site (I had a v7 site with v7.5 installed)
  • Give permission for the Application pool user for your site to read the Episerver program files (ie: C:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\CMS)

Hope this helps someone.
