    How did you migrate? If you exported ‘downloads’ you also need to export ‘downloadable files’ as those contain the urls.

    I don’t know what tables you imported, but if doing it that way ensure posts and postmeta went across, and the post IDs remained the same.

    I have the same problem. I have my site running with no problem on localhost and when I upload it to my server the links in the downdloads appear empty, title, filesize and date appear correctly in the listing but not the filename.
    Any ideas?
    I uploaded my site as I always do: FTP, exported the whole database, search and replace localhost with the domain name and imported it in the server
    Everything else works fine… I’m using a template width a featured image and that works perfectly.

    Thanks in advance.
