XF 1.4 Xenforo not working after installation

Hi All,

My xenforo is not working post migration to a new server

I am getting below message -

Not Found
The requested document was not found on this server.


I have already checked the migration instruction and am sure about the following to be correct

1. Permissions of data directories
2. database names and user/passwords

I am doubtful about friendly urls - I had not disabled friendly url before migration? How can i do that now to check if this is the issue? Can this be disabled from backend?

You can disable them directly from admin.php via the options; this does not use friendly URLs. If you can't access admin.php by going to the URL directly, that would imply that there's a migration issue or a general server config issue.
