Only Index page working after migrating your WordPress site?

As you can see from the previous post, I am in the process of moving some WordPress installations to a new server. I’ve done this before however like with the update script, always need forget the exact steps needed to get the newly migrated site fully working.

Step 1.

First thing to do is double check the httpd.conf file and check that AllowOverride is set to All for the directory. If not, make the change and then save the file.

<Directory /var/www/mydomain.co.uk>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
Require all granted
</Directory>

Step 2.

Go to the WordPress dashboard for the site, visit settings > permalinks. I’ve been told that just opening the page is enough to get the new configuration working, but I don’t think pressing save hurts.
