PhalconException: IndexController handler class cannot be loaded

  • Posted June 10, 2014


So I’ve been having a few issues with Phalcon on my ubuntu 14.04 x32 apache2 droplet. However I did finally get it installed, I now assume there is some settings either the .conf or .htaccess thats messing this up, i’m just a bit tired of not getting anywhere.

Its working perfectly fine on my local mamp apache2 server and all the configs are good to go on that end. And I can’t really find anything that’s helpful online, or at least I haven’t found the right place yet.

The different files:


<pre> <Directory /var/www/> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> </pre> 000-default.conf: .htaccess:

Any help would be appreciated!

You need to have the default controller created.

It’s likely you’re not loading the module in php. You need to an ini file that loads the phalcon extension.

Create a file called /etc/php5/conf.d/phalcon.ini and this single line in the file extension = “

Make sure to restart apache. You can also check loaded modules via “php -m” command

Could you post the contents of your “public/index.php” ? I suspect that you need to replace this line: <pre> $url->setBaseUri(‘/project_name/’); </pre> with: <pre> $url->setBaseUri(‘/test/’); </pre> That assumes that your project is in /var/www/test
