Problem 1: Strapi routes return 404 Not found Error.  Getting “status”: 404, & “name”: “NotFoundError” Error


Add /api/ next to the site name and add utl then try to access just like this one


Old one: http://localhost:1337/products

New one: http://localhost:1337/api/products

Strapi: image not appear in API

  1. Install Populate deep plugin.
  2. Then use the alternative api like this
  3. /api/articles?populate=deep
  4. You will now get the image information.

Note:  You can also use (?populate=*) http://localhost:1337/api/a-categories/?populate=* to get a detailed version of information from the API URL.

How to run already installed (Existing) strapi project on PC

Open that Strapi project folder in Vs code like Editor.

Open that folder in the Terminal and paste the following Code.

npm run develop

Now check the localhost:portname

Mine is http://localhost:1337/

That's all.

Suddenly, Strapi AI not display Any content

You may create different fields with the same name. So api structure collapsed and it s not display any content and it will show “bad gateway” or “Not found error”


Change the field name to a different one.
