XF 1.4 Move To New Server - Only Home Page Works

#1
Hi All,

Here is what I have done:

1) Built FreeBSD 10.3 Server

2) Installed Apache 2.4 / MariaDB / PHP 5.6

3) Create DB

4) Install XenForo 1.4

5) Export data from old server to SQL file

6) Import data to new server

7) Copy contents of old site to new site and edit /library/configuraion files

8) Rebuild Caches

9) Redirect Domain

The home page is served up and looks fine but not a single link on the page works. The admin pages are all accessible. Any ideas?

Thanks for any help.

Do you have Friendly URLs enabled?

If so, did you copy the .htaccess file across?
It can sometimes be a hidden file so may not have copied.
If not, rename the htaccess.txt file to .htaccess.

If that doesn't work, disable Friendly URLs in the ACP or ensure the server is configured to support them.

Thank you sir. It was the friendly url settings. Disable did the trick. Any advice on what pkg I need to install? My first shot at Google produced nothing relevant.
