Common Errors

“Base table or view not found” when installing a new Magento 2

The error

When installing a fresh instance of Magento 2 you may get one of the following error messages:

[PDOException] SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'magento.store_website' doesn't exist
Code language: plaintext (plaintext)

That’s weird, you say? Of course the table store_website doesn’t exist yet, because you were just trying to install Magento. So, where does that exception come from?

Quick Tips

Access back-end with non-standard TLS port

When you’re running Magento 2 inside a Docker container (for example for local development) and you’re using a non-standard TLS port (or SSL port) like 44333, then your back-end adminhtml route will trigger a 404 error.


Using Magento 2 Flag Models

To save a few bits of data you don’t have to create a specialized entity each time. Magento 2, just like its predecessor Magento 1, offers Flag models. Flag models implement a small key-value store inside the Magento database.

In Magento 1 you could use the Flag model directly. For Magento 2, we have to create a class that extends the framework Flag class so we are able to set the correct FlagCode.
