[resolved] Site not working after server move (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I recently built a WordPress site with Multisite and Buddypress on my LAN server and I have uploaded it to my web hosting but I'm having issues. I have the site fully uploaded and the database settings are correct but when I visit the site I get this error: "Oops! This link appears to be broken." but if I enter the URL of one of the multisite blogs it works fine without the buddypress 'bar' up the top.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    Cameron Gray

    Without details on exactly how you accomplished your Move, the best I can suggest is to review this article and see if you missed any steps:

    Most obvious question is whether you changed domain names as well as servers. If so, you may want to explore the Search and Replace plug-in to clean up any hard-coded links:

    I have kept the same domain.

    To move the server I uploaded the site to the host with FTP and then imported the database. I set the database settings up exactly the same as the were on the previous server.

    I should also point out that I can still access the dashboard for the site.

    I have moved many other WP sites in the same way - the only difference is that this uses Multisite and Buddypress.

    Fixed it!

    The buddpress plugin had somehow disabled it's self!
