How do I avoid the white label error(404) on localhost:8080?

Tags: , , , ,



I have been looking around here and in other forums for hours and I still haven’t found what I am doing wrong. I have built a simple Spring-Boot application with MongoDB and I have no errors in the console when i run it but i keep getting the white label error no matter what I do. My main and controller classes are in different packages but I have used @ComponentScan. I have also added web app folder thinking it would fix it but apparently that wasn’t the issue. I have also added all the necessary mappings to the controller class. These are the most common solutions I’ve seen but I still get the same error.
