[resolved] Blank post page after moving to new host (4 posts)

    I am attempting to move http://magicstatistics.com from one host to another. I've exactly followed the official WP documentation and http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/restore/ as well.

    I changed all instances within the SQL of http://magicstatistics.com to http://ss91.shared.server-system.net/~magicstatistics.com/ as instructed. I also deleted the cache directory as instructed,

    All appears to be working on the index page located on the new host, as visible at http://ss91.shared.server-system.net/~magicstatistics.com/

    But as soon as I select an article, say the first one, The Ninth Sunday After Trinity, I get a 404 page like http://ss91.shared.server-system.net/~magicstatistics.com/2006/08/13/the-ninth-sunday-after-trinity/

    Any ideas on what could be causing this?

    Many thanks,

    geof

    Try this: change your .htaccess file permissions to 777 (if you don't have one, upload a blank .txt file, then rename to .htaccess). Then access your wp-admin section, click on the permalinks tab, choose which type of permalink you want (the middle radio button is a generally usable alternative), scroll to the bottom, click the Update button.

    Assuming you don't get any weird error messages, then return to the .htaccess file and reset the permissions to 644. Then see what happens.

    You're welcome! Could you mark this as "resolved" please?
