Support » Fixing WordPress » Permalink issue due to move – help request

  • In need of some assistance.

    I developed a site for a buddy and created under my domain first. My site is on godaddy, FWIW.

    eg: http://artbymichaelking.com/bikram (site not there anymore)

    Everything was created and functional. I had permalinks structure as /%postname%/ and it all worked smoothly.

    I moved the blog to http://bikramhotyoga.ca/ (hosted on Easyhost)given the instructions in the WP CODEX. Everything transfered fine and the site is working using default permalink structure (http://bikramhotyoga.ca/?p=123)

    When I change the permalink to http://bikramhotyoga.ca/%postname%/ and hit update, it tells me it is successfull, BUT when I try to navigate the site I get a 404 Forbidden access message.

    Note that it was created in a sub directory /bikram/ but when moved it was placed in the root directory.

    I am hoping one of you experts can help me out.

    All I want to do is have the permalinks set at http://bikramhotyoga.ca/%postname%/ so I can better track the page hits in google analytics.

    My index.php is:
    <?php
    /* Short and sweet */
    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, true);
    require(‘./wp-blog-header.php’);
    ?>

    .htaccess is in the root directory and reads:
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress
