  • it looks as if you .htacess is the issue.

    1. Make it CHMOD 777
    2. Turn of Pemalinks in you wp settings
    3. Re-enable them it should work.

    OK, I think I figured out the CHMOD 777 thing, but how do I turn ‘off’ permalinks?

    In you wp-admin > settings (options) > Permalinks

    (your url)/wp-admin/options-permalink.php

    is the file if you just want to type the url to get there.

    Well, yes. But there is no ‘off’ setting that I can see. So what do you mean by ‘off’? I tried resetting to the default, updating permalinks, then resetting to my custom structure, but it doesn’t work.

    I followed Chris Pearson’s (Cutline nee Neoclassic theme author) advice to set my permalink structure to /%postname%/. This worked when WordPress was in its default location but perhaps that needs to be changed?

    in your general tab did you change the wordpress address to the new location?

    Yep, sure did. WordPress location actually never changed; it was always so I just left it. Web site location I changed to I moved index.php and .htaccess from to as described in the support article.

    You were correct about CHMOD, because one of the things I found was that previously the .htaccess file was not being updated. Now it gets written correctly.

    OK, well…I changed Permalinks back to default, updated, tried it and it worked. So then I reset my custom tag, updated, and it still works. So…problem solved. Must have missed a step somewhere along the way.
