EDIT: Nevermind, I fixed the problem. I was fiddling around with this for 1+ hour, posted this thread, and then figured out the solution a few minutes later… sigghhhh - For those of you that have this problem in the future, you need to go to the .htaccess and set the file permission to 666 - then in your wordpress admin, go to settings -> Permalinks and save.
Hey, I was transferring one of my wordpress blogs to my friend’s host, and I encountered a problem. None of the posts or pages work. I tried following different guides/tutorials but I can’t figure out the problem. (btw, both of us use host gator)
You can see the website at <snip>
Here are the exact steps of what I’ve been doing:
- Pointing the domain’s name servers towards his name servers.
- Backed up everything in /wp-content
- Backed up the database using phpMyAdmin
- Installed a Fresh new WordPress on his server
- Using phpMyAdmin, I imported my old database into his new database.
- Copied over all of the /wp-content files into his new installation.
I left the wp-config.php file’s database name, user, and password at its default values from the new wordpress installation (since the database name is already pointing towards the name of the new database… I’m assuming the username and password should also be okay be default?)
What else am I missing?
