Support » Theme: GeneratePress » 404 Error for All Pages Except Home Page

  • I just moved my website from an older GoDaddy hosting system to a new one, and now only the homepage works. All other pages result in a “404 File Not Found” error. I have absolutely no idea how to fix this….I followed the GoDaddy instructions on how to migrate a website 100% exactly, so don’t even know where this problem is!

    I would appreciate any solutions, especially super easy, non-technical solutions. 🙂 (ie. “Dummy’s version”!)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there,

    Hard to know what’s happening exactly, but try going to “Settings > Permalinks” and clicking the Save button.

    Let me know 🙂

    Hi @jframst,

    This is common issue. You need to just save permalink structure and click on Save Settings buttons.

    It will work perfectly.

    Permalinks didn’t work for me.

    I had the same problem, just saving the permalinks did not work…

    But when I changed the permalinks to standard – then saved it – then changed it back to the custom structure again, it did work!

    Hope this can help someone 🙂

    Thanks for sharing the solution 🙂

    I have tried changing the permalinks with no success.

    Also tried to add in the htaccess file:

    # 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

    Still no success, even when I create a fresh page it comes back 404????

    Any help will be very appreciated.

    Can you please open a new topic for your question?

    Please also contact your hosting support to see if they can identify any issues first.

    I am facing same problem, I think the problem is with the .htaccess main file

    The reasons for this can be varied. Advisable to try rebuilding permalinks, rebuilding httaccess rules and/or checking for plugin conflict. Your host should also be able to advise of any server level issues – but the problem is rarely ever related to the theme.

    after 2 long days, the sloution was to add
    options +FollowSymLinks
    to your .htaccess file

    Glad to hear you found a solution.

    Hello there,

    I am facing the same problem and there is nothing wrong with my server.Also I can login as admin but i can’t get to the dashboard page. Everytime I click on the dashboard from the top of my homepage, it refresh the homepage and stay in homepage.

    I tried to delete the htaccess file but it doesn’t work.

    Hi there,

    the Theme has no control over permalinks or redirects. This sounds like a server level issue. I would recommend speaking to your hosting provider to look at any error logs to find out what the issue is.
