Support » Fixing WordPress » archives issue

  • I recently switched hosting companies. Before doing so, I did a backup of my WP and then uploaded it to my new hosting companies WP MYSQL database. Everything seemed kosher until I realized I could not access my archives. The front page or .com looks ok but when you click on past months you get a 404 error. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

  • It happens when you click on past archives or any permalink for a post or anything that would require the pretty permalinks system to be working.

    What will work is an ugly link such as
    or for your june archives

    You need to check your .htaccess file — what it contains, if there is one — also check that you are on a linux and not a windows server. And get back on your way to Permalinks.

    But before you do any of that, upgrade WordPress to 2.0.4 ….immediately. Don’t delay.

    Excellent Geoffe. I appreciate your help. Yeah I plan on upgrading just have trying to get all the bugs fixed first. Again, thanks
