Looking at the error log intervened on the .htaccess file

The interface is divided promptly …

Someone sadire what happened , or rather because the .htaccess file had the wrong line ?

Don’t know if it helps for you, but i’ve had the problem too of the GUI not loading after updating the FreePBX Core.
On the forum i found someone that a “a2enmod rewrite” and “service apache2 restart” should fix it.
Well, it didn’t fix it here, the page was still giving a time-out.
This morning i figured, maybe it’s a rights problem, so i did a “fwconsole chown”, and YES, the GUI was working again.

Please read https://sourceforge.net/p/raspbx/discussion/bugreports/thread/d571aecc/

Here is the perfect answer , Thanks !
