404 errors outside of homepage

    Hi all,

    I migrated my site from one hosting company to the next, transferred all the files, the db, etc. The homepage shows up fine with the correct number of users, posts, etc, but clicking any link results in a 404 error. Anyone know a resolution to this? The domain name hasn't changed, just the IP.

    What does your .htaccess file look like? Have you tried turning off Full friendly URLs to see if that fixes it?

    Thanks a ton. Turning off Full friendly URLs gets everything working.

    What do I need to do as far as modifying the htaccess file to get those working again?

    I'm guessing the new host doesn't have mod_rewrite installed to convert the URLs to the friendly versions. Is it shared hosting you are on, or a VPS/dedicated?
