[Resolved] Backend OK, Frontend shows nothing

  • Hi all,

    This is a complete mystery for me!

    I had to restore my MySQLdatabase, ’cause it’d been hacked.

    I had a good DB backup that I restored.
    I then uploaded a complete clean Install from WP.
    Went to the backend and had to fill in some steps for the wp-config.php file.
    Alle went well.

    Now the backend is fully operational, but… the front end ONLY shows the Home page.

    All other pages, when clicked, return a 404 error.
    While all those pages are available and editable in the backend.

    One more thing: I’m using theme 2011, while the original site (the one that got hacked) used another theme.

    This is a complete mystery to me. Who can help?

    thx

    Have you tried resetting your permalinks? What version of WordPress were you running previously?

    Hi,

    Previous version of WP was either 3.4.1 or 3.3

    I’m not sure how the permalinks were set (in the past).
    Currently they’re set to %postname% (I didn’t do that, with the clean install I just did it was set to this)

    the url is: http://kooruwel.be

    Previous version of WP was either 3.4.1 or 3.3

    You need to find out which version via the.sql backup file as the daatbase structure changed a couple of times between 3.3 and 3.4.1. The database version number is stored in the wp-options table under the option name db_version.

    I’m not sure how the permalinks were set (in the past).

    Just reset them to the default via Settings -> Permalinks.

    Hi,

    thanks for the help.
    got is solved now.
    Your first post did it:
    I had set my .htaccess chmod to 444, which caused WP not to be able to change the permalinks.
    I changed it to 644 and it worked.

    thx!
