Recently I had to move one of my blogs to another hosting account. I moved all files and then did upload a mysql backup. Blog was working but if you click on a post or category you get a 404 error.
I haven't changed anything.
Permalink Settings is /%post_id%/%category%/%postname%.php
Also it has a .htaccess file.
whats the reason for this ? here's the link,
Basically Only the home page is opening. All other internal links are not working returning a 404 error.

It most likely has something to do with the .htaccess file. What do the contents of your .htaccess look like?

Are you sure the new host has mod_rewrite enabled?

Cool glad you figured out what the issue was.
I'm no expert on VPS so I recommend posting over in the Apache Configuration forum: http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=199 DK should be able to steer you in the right direction.

Thank you BPartch for all the help. Finally I got it fixed with help from another Ben at WHT ! Good lesson for me buying a unmanged VPS without knowing what to do.
Ben Thomas from btcentral.org.uk helped me to get it fix. I have to thank him for saving me from this nightmare.
