    Today I have installed wordpress on a subdomain and imported my posts and comments etc over from blogware.

    Also I have just changed my blogs permalink structure from the default to /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    Since doing this my urls for anything deeper than the homepage work but my home page returns a 404 error, any idea why?

    Was your .htaccess file updated?

    I have no idea to be honest, can you explain why this is important?

    Because the rewrite rules needs for custom permalinks are in your .htaccess file.
