[resolved] Site Transfer: Comments Are Now A 404 Error? (3 posts)

    Hi, I just transferred a client's site to a new host and for some reason clicking to see or edit the comments now results in a 404 error. Can you help me fix this?

    The FTP has no remaining failed file transfers and the database import said everything was successful & the comments are still visible in the admin. But obviously something's amiss.

    You can try resetting the permalinks (just visit the permalinks page and hit save) - sometimes that can refresh a borked transfer

    If that doesn't work, check to see what URL the site is attempting to go to when you press that comment button, sometimes something is amiss in there

    Are you testing on a default theme with no plugins active?

    Finally, is everything set up properly from the transfer? Various hosts have slightly different things that might be needed in a php.ini or .htaccess file. I've had strange results during transfers from such things.

    Looks like the re-saving permalinks worked. Thanks.
