Support » Networking WordPress » Blog sites transfered to another server -> subsites not found anymore

  • Resolved Pirjo


    I have transfered our WordPress 3.3.1. multiuser blogs to another server and on a new domainname.

    The blog sites are on directory structure:

    When you try to go to subdirectories you get the error message below
    “Not Found
    The requested document was not found on this server.”

    To the main page ( you are able to go, but you get it without pictures.

    I have changed all old domainnames to new ones on the database and on scripts. At least I think so.

    Can you help me and tell what I have to do to fix this problem.

  • Try flushing the permalinks. You can just select different option, revert back to original one and save it to flush them and rewritten to .htaccess. Also make sure there is .htaccess in root folder.


    Thank you for your answer.

    I tried you asked me to do. But it didn’t help. My .htaccess is on the -dicectory as it was on the old server. It is this kind:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /blog
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    The images are pointing here:

    Which translates to this:

    So that works, and it means that your new server doesn’t like the complex .htaccess rules. Ask your webhost if httpd.conf has AllowOverride set to either All or Options All


    Thank you for your advises. The problem is solved now. AllowOverride is ok on our new server. Today I noticed that .htaccess file’s name was changed when I transfered the files to the new server. It was after transfering htaccess. After I saved it on notepad inside apostrophes (“.htaccess”) I got the dot back.
