[resolved] Pages not working since webhost migration (4 posts)

    I recently changed web hosting provider, but kept the same domain name. I followed the wordpress codex migration guide, and it seemed the backup and restore to the new host worked fine.

    The admin works ok, just upgraded to 3.0.1 (to see if that might fix issue). The home page looks fine, all the images and posts display correctly and added new post this morning all ok. See alexander-bown.com

    However when I click on the pages (about, hosting) or any of the posts for more detail I get a 404.

    http://www.alexander-bown.com/2010/03/org-eclipse-gef/

    Access log entry [28/Sep/2010:08:22:54 +0100] "GET /2010/03/org-eclipse-gef/ HTTP/1.1" 404 - "http://www.alexander-bown.com/"

    I've googled, but most peoples issues that are similar are relating to domain name change.

    It there something I missed during migration? Any ideas?

    Try resetting your custom permalinks back to the default setting and deleting/renaming your WordPress .htaccess file. If this works, then set a custom permalink structure back up again.

    Reset the permalinks back to the default setting, and the pages started to work and changed back and still works, yay! :)

    Mucho Thanks esmi!
