Recycle Bin and Root Folder 404


I'm running an EPiServer CMS 5 SP3 site (5.1.422.267) with demo templates and I'm getting a 404 error when accessing the recycle bin/wastebasket or root folder as the DataFactory instance is returning the page link as /UI/edit/wastebasketpage.aspx rather than my customUI path.

I've checked my ID references and custom paths in the config and everything is as it should be.

Anyone come across this before and know the fix?

Did you check the url in the admin mode?
Look at the page types SysRoot and SysRecycleBin. Look at settings. -FileName
It has to be changed into /YOUR_UI_PATH/edit/.

Ah right, that was it. It wasn't updated during the install. Sorted.

Hi there

I am experiencing the similar kind of problem after upgrade a site from verion 5.1 to 5.2. Only the root node and recyclebin have this kind of problem, the admin site url looks fine to me.

Besides, can anyone explain a bit more about "Look at the page types SysRoot and SysRecycleBin. Look at settings. -FileName
It has to be changed into /YOUR_UI_PATH/edit/."....

Here is the error message I received.

Thanks & Regards

Problem solved.

The virtual path for admin section are defined in both web.config and database. table called "tblPageType"

In web.config the virtual path for admin is "private/ui/"

But in database table "tblpagetype", filename value for "name" sysroot and sysrecyclebin are different.

So, after changing them to the same value, the problem is fiex

I had the same problem with root folder and recycle bin.

I updated the field "filename" (table tblPageType) for SysRoot and SysRecycleBin from "/ui/..." to "/MYADMINPATH/...".

Problem solved
