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

  • Resolved jframst


    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]
    # 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.

    I am facing the same problem.
    except Home page all pages are showing error
    I even tried that permalink and htaccess file but then also I am facing the same problem

    please some help me with these or contact me on

    Hi there,

    we cannot provide email support.
    Have you checked with your host to see if they can spot a problem ?

    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.
