How to fix "404 Not Found" errors when accessing the MIDAS installer"Not Found" (404) errors when accessing the installer for a self-hosted MIDAS room scheduling system through your browser, may be caused by the following:
It may be possible that you've not entered the correct URL in your web browser.
Every URL you enter in your browser's address bar resolves to a specific resource located on the web server you're connecting to.
The URL you've entered in your browser's address bar should resolve to the location on your server where you've placed the MIDAS installer file (install.pl).
For example, let's say that you've uploaded the MIDAS software installer on your server under /public_html/midas/install.pl. The corresponding URL which resolves to this server location is likely to be along the lines of https://yourdomain/midas/install.pl.
However, if you've uploaded/placed the installer to /public_html/midas/install.pl but then enter https://yourdomain/install.pl in your browser, a "404" error will be produced because the URL you've entered does not correspond to the location on your server where the installer for your MIDAS booking system is located.
Another cause of a 404 Not Found error can be if your web server has been configured to run on a non-standard port.
Standard web server ports are Port 80 (for http connections) and Port 443 (for secure https connection).
If your web server is configured to be running on a non-standard port, you'll need to include this port within the URL to your MIDAS installer.
For example, if you've uploaded / placed the MIDAS system installer on your server at /public_html/midas/install.pl, and your server is currently running on a non-standard port, i.e. Port 8080, then the correct corresponding URL to access the installer is likely to be along the lines of https://yourdomain:8080/midas/install.pl.
