Only front page showing after moving to a new linode

Hello everyone,

I've moved a WordPress website from a 1GB Linode running Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.1.5-x8664-linode61 x8664) to a new 1GB Linode running Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.1.5-x8664-linode61 x8664)

The .htaccess file has been moved across and has the same file permissions.

I used rsync to move the files and db across, all of the file permissions and ownership seem to be the same.

I've refreshed my permalink settings in WP.

However - The front page and content are displaying, although the styling and internal pages are producing a not found error.

So it would seem there's some sort of permissions issue with accessing anything but the base URL.

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Try regenerating your cache.

Thanks defry! Although I've already tried that.

Could tis be a module issue?



Going here

You can see that there is nothing in the cache. Yet the page source for the front page references a cached css file.

Can you try disabling any/all caching plugins?

Many thanks,

So it's two issues. You're correct, the formatting was down to caching issues with the W3 Caching plugin. I should have checked this first! Thanks.

The remaining issue with only the front page being found has happened before ages ago, however I can't for the life of me remember the fix. It's a 404 error which would point to the page not being found rather than a permissions issue.

I'm going to start by checking apache2.conf.

Thanks again for your help.

Okay, mod_rewrite wasn't enabled.

sudo a2enmod rewrite
sudo service apache2 restart

Thanks again for your help.
