Support » Installing WordPress » Migrating from Windows to Linux

  • Resolved nathan12343



    I am in the process of creating up a WP site on a Windows Server (IIS6)( but because of the unfriendly URLs I need to move it to a new domain and server running Linux (

    The current site has data from a MySQL dBase and a number of active plugins that I want to keep. The only reason for the move is the pretty permalinks.

    When I did a straight copy of all files the permalink structure kept ‘index.php’ in the url. I know that the new Linux server will allow mod_rewrite.

    Can anyone tell me how to do this? I guess it could be quite simple… (or should that read hope!)
