Hi, McLovin

As I see your image at, I found that there is a problem of mod_rewrite module not related to PHP version. You need to set mod_rewrite ON for your apache confing file.

If you still get this problem then please check at your site root. There will be a .htacess file. It will be cerated at the time of installation. If it is not there, then please create it manullay.

Please lem me know if you have any confusion.

Thanks !
