Changed server - 404 error

Recommended Posts


I have changed from hostmonster to studiocoast server.

Besides backing up the database and files, I copied over all the files from the shop/ folder to the new site.

The database was installed.

Now, I can access the admin section and the front page of the shopping cart. ie  https://www.harrisorganicwine.com.au/shop/ 

when I click on any image on the front page I get:

Server Error      404 - File or directory not found.

The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.


However if I click on add to basket it seems that part of CC is OK.

Any suggestions on what to do please?

Please verify that the new environment has the appropriate web server configuration settings: URL rewriting (mod_rewrite?) is enabled, and allowing .htaccess directives to overrule web server general settings.

This error suggests that the URL rewriting is not happening and that the web server is looking for the actual seo-friendly web document: /mens-hats/pork-pie-hat.html.
