Cannot get CI to work on localhost, but work on shared hositng - kcngtech - 12-09-2015

Hi guys

Need help. Just started with CI today. And I'm doing the static page tutorial to create the home and about page. I manage to get it work on a shared account on hostgator, but not on my localhost. Im getting 404 not found error. 

No database connectivity yet.

I have download the exact copy from Hostgator to my localhost, still have the same problem. I have change the base_url to localhost, still not working.

On the shared hosting, i can view the about page on http://mydomain.com/index.php/pages/view/about

On my local host, get 404 not found error http://localhost/index.php/pages/view/about


Is it how my web server is setup ? Im using nginx. Could this be the probelm ?

get a fresh new version of codeigniter -- try setting that up on your local machine -- see if you get the welcome page.
