Support » Fixing WordPress » move site to zeus webserver

  • I’m trying to move a site from a test server to a clients server. The client is using a Zeus webserver and has a current wordpress site in the web directory, eg

    I’ve tried moving the test site a few times now and get a variety of errors. I have copied the test database and installed it in a new database on the client server. I have also changed the home and siyeurls in the database to the new location. When I uploaded the files images would not appear and I could not login as I got a 405 error. Links also led to 404 pages. I assume I need to reset the permalinks but as I could not login to the admin I could not do this.

    I’ve put the clients old site back in the original location and thought I would get the new site set up in a different subdir and once working just move the directories. However, when I try to go to the new site in it tries to go to a newsite page in the old site as the permalinks are set up so that resolves to

    How to I get around this?

    Try reviewing Moving_WordPress.

    I had reviewed that page, I think the issue is to do with the Zeus server. I have followed a number of suggested methods but no success. I have also followed

    I get stuck trying to login to the admin side to reset/resave the permalinks, I got an error 405 trying to login to wp-login.php, I could not access the wp-admin at all, just a blank page or a 404 error

    I am facing the same issue while moving a wordpress site from apache to zeus server, I made the changes & when trying to access the site it just throws a while screen. I removed .htaccess and created the rewrite.script as necessary for zeus server following is my rewrite script. Dont know what else am I missing.
    any help would be appreciated.

    # get the document root
    map path into SCRATCH:DOCROOT from /
    # initialize our variables
    # see if theres any queries in our URL
    match URL into $ with ^(.*)?(.*)$
    if matched then
    # prepare to search for file, rewrite if its not found
    # check to see if the file requested is an actual file or
    # a directory with possibly an index.  don’t rewrite if so
    look for file at %{SCRATCH:REQUEST_FILENAME}
    if not exists then
    look for dir at %{SCRATCH:REQUEST_FILENAME}
    if not exists then
    set URL = /index.php?q=%{SCRATCH:REQUEST_URI}
    # if we made it here then its a file or dir and no rewrite
    goto END
    # append the query string if there was one originally
    # the same as [QSA,L] for apache
    match SCRATCH:ORIG_URL into % with ?(.*)$
    if matched then
    goto END

    @sudrixbiaggi, Why are you using WordPress 3.5?

    this is what that installed on the other server using the script install on godaddy, now i am trying to move this site to a different host with zeus server. Is there any problem with Zeus & WordPress 3.5 ?

    I think 7 security fixes have been rolled out since WordPress 3.5, is it worth the risk?

    Once I will be able to login & have the access to the site upon fixing this current issue I definitely can go ahead and upgrade to the new version however at this time the prime concern is to get it working. 🙁
