[resolved] My cloned site only shows the homepage (5 posts)

    Hello Ovidiu.

    Firs of all, congratulations for your work, I think it's impressive!

    I just cloned a site in order to make proofs before updating the real site, I can see the cloned site homepage perfectly, but if you click anywhere you'll get this error.

    Not Found

    The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I didn't get any error while backing up my site or when transferring to the other host, all was smooth. I created a new db, new user, with all privileges, and it was populated fine. Ididn't make the backup incremental, nor the database backup, if that helps... I'm also running 3.0.4 version of X Cloner.

    Any idea of what's going on? My server status is ok, and I have others WP installations in the same hosting running fine.

    Here are the links:

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    WTF? If I make a search, using the search box, it finds the related posts, why can't I navigate then?

    The issue you have is probably related to permalinks and .htaccess setup, i would advise updating those and see if it helps!

    Ok, like you said, it was an .htcaccess issue.

    I've read this thread, and changed .htaccess from:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    to

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /gadpruebas/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /gadpruebas/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    Now the navigation works fine, but when I try to access to the wordpress configuration, I still get an error:

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@valis.es and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Any ideas? I guess mod_rewrite is enable, but do you think it's still this kind of issue?

    Thanks a lot for your support!

    Done.

    It was a wrong route caming from the original blog cloned, that persisted in the htaccess, inside the /admin subdirectory. Erased that htaccess file and everything went smooth! :)

    Thanks for your haelp!
