    Hello, I have an issue.

    Hello,


    Before I order from you, I would like to know if you cand resolve this issue.


    I created a wordpress site on my domain and I just move it to my client's personal server. They don't have Cpanel, I can acces it only with a program named "Putty".


    This website was before on my domain like this http://www.mydomain.com/clientsite


    I backed up the data base and the whole website and I updated the URL's from myphpadmin and it was all good.


    After the upload to the new server was done I was able to see only the homepage but when I click on another pages like "About us" I get a 404 error and it says:
    Not Found


    The requested URL /about-us/ was not found on this server.


    Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at baltursib.ro Port 80


    What can I do to fix this? I sould add something to .htaccess file or something? I changed permalinks to default and then again to "post-name". I also installed a plugin who update all the URL's named "elvet Blues Update URLs" a very good plugin for this kind of stuff but he cannot find the wordpress files because they are not in root and I get this message "Unable to locate WordPress Content directory (wp-content)".


    If there is an server side expert and moving wordpress sites, please contact me.

    You made a mistake there, you should never modify the database through tools such as phpmyadmin, always use the installed script like WordPress in this case. Check the urls in setting that they match with everything. If you would like, you can pm and I can take a look.

    I hope this helps

    1- login wordpress
    2- on the left sidebar find "settings-permalinks"
    3- apply the same permalink structure as you did on your old site.

    ok, edgematch, I changed the permalinks structure from postname to default and I was able to see the pages. Now, when i change the permalink struture back to postname, again that error appears. I should do something in myphpadmin again? I remember that I changed manually the links from mydomain.ro/clientsite to clientsite.ro
