    I finally got my arse into gear and started migrating my websites from Godaddy to hostwinds

    I followed a very detailed video on YouTube and acted on every single instruction. I migrated the wordpress site with no problems.

    However every page of my website other than the home page gives me a 404 not found error. I literally only finished migrating the site 20 minutes ago, have i made a mistake somewhere? or will it just take time for the site to be fully propagated?

    Nevermind, fixed it.

    For anyone else who may come across this thread and have the same problem.

    In wp admin go to settings > permalinks > choose any of the options other than the one already chosen (dont save) then choose the original option you had and hit save.

    Glad you fixed your problem! Next time you can ask your hosting provider to migrate your website, most of them do it with no extra charge and you won't have to spend your time moving the website.
