Support » Fixing WordPress » problems after moving site

  • Resolved 2lopez


    Hi there.

    For some months I’ve been running a wordpress instance without big problems. Recently I have changed the domain name (same machine) following these instructions. Yesterday I went to bed quite happy as everything worked correctly (images, pages, posts, comments, plugins, etc). But this morning it’s not working!

    I can’t access wp-login.php (it’s there, with rights -rw-r–r–, the same as the other files).
    I can’t access any page of the website (yesterday I was able).

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

  • What is the link to your site?

    Thanks for your answer parkerj

    It’s quite weird: sometimes it works, sometimes not. In fact some minutes ago I was surfing the site at the same time with Opera and Firefox: for the same urls ff was giving me 404 but Opera not.

    You can try the links on the upper menues.

    Yes, I see. The links don’t work for me in any browser. Can you make sure that your .htaccess exists and also, update permalinks again?

    Thanks parkerj,


    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    I can’t access neither /wp-login.php to check the permalinks… 🙁



    Did you find a fix to this issue?
    I have had an issue like this in the past and I was able to fix it by adding the site URL in the wp-config.php file, if you still have this issue this might be a temporary fix to get you into the admin section.

    Yes, I tried fixing it adding the following to wp-config.php:


    But it seems not to work.

    UPDATE: if I remove the prefix www. to an url, it doesn’t work. So I log in to PLESK, and check this parameter on my domain -> navigation starts working again.

    BUT /wp-login.php still doesn’t work

    I was seeing your pages, then all of a sudden it came to a halt. Manually upload your WordPress core files again in case some of them got corrupted.


    Anyway thanks for your help guys…

    No problem. You may want to disable Suhosin, get your site situated and see if you can enable it again without any issues.

    Ok, back to normal… problem solved. The wp-login thing seems an ssl issue which I should check with my hosting provider…

    Thanks guys!!!
