Support » Fixing WordPress » Internal Server Error

  • I have developed a site using a WordPress theme locally using WAMP but when I went to put on GoDaddy and go live I received this message below. GoDaddy said it was a file structure issue they are unable to help with and suggested I try here. Any suggestions on how to fix this so the site will go live? The error message occurs when you click on about or contact page however the home page only displays a portion of the design. Any help will be great. Thanks

  • May i know how do you move your site localhost to Godaddy server?

    Can you check your htaccess file is exist

    I selected all the files that pertain to the site from the www on localhost and then zipped that. From there i uploaded the zip to godaddy. I do have an htaccess file and when i googled the error it suggested to change the name and refresh to see if that works. I tried and it did not work.

    Previously I have used Akeeba backup to move my sites, I think there are other plugins available, these take a lot of the hassle out of moving a site.
    Did you also copy the database? Just the files under www isnt enough

    Yeah I did copy the database as well. I’ll check into the plugin option too. Thanks!

    I would give this plugin a try.

    Have GoDaddy do a fresh install of WordPress and login. Install that plugin and install it locally. Locally do the export and make sure you know the user/PW.

    I’ve had good luck using that plugin with issues like this.

    Great. I’ll try. Thanks
