    Hi everybody,

    when i changed my hosting formula and chose a more expansive one, because my site was really too slow, my provider, Nuxit, organised the migration to the new servers.

    while migrating, they changed the structure of the website, moved the .htaccess and the index files, as there have encountered many problems, they even deleted plugins, etc.

    then, after 48 hours of problems, it seems to be ok.

    though, i still have 2 little questions:

    the first is that my domain name is now directly pointing to the wordpress folder.
    this wordpress folder is located in the quatrepiliers1 folder itself within the www folder

    don’t you think it is weird? would it not be better if pointing onto the above folder quatrepiliers1. That is how it was before the migration.

    I think, they did it his way because they had problems, but it was not like that before, and it means i can’t add anything to that domain (like a forum, or whatever other folder that would need to be accessible by the internet)

    the second is about the permalinks : is it “normal” that it proposes the following structure :
    https://www.quatrepiliers.fr/index.php/2020/01/exemple-article/
    as if index.php was an actual folder ?
    anyway, i am using https://www.quatrepiliers.fr/%postname%/ and it’s working fine

    in the end, that’s all,

    But thanks, anyway,

    v

    1) You need to ask for more information at your hosting.
    2) Ask if you can add Domains addon (if the answer is no, you cannot move wordpress)
    3) Almost permalink indicates you are using PATHINFO /index.php/, ask your hosting if htaccess is supported instead.
    Pretty Permalink (mod_rewrite , htaccess) and other https://wordpress.org/support/article/using-permalinks/
    Update your settings, change plain click save, change Pretty Permalink click save.
