look like you have missing .htaccess, try copy the .htaccess files from
old server to new server.

if htaccess already copied then your apache must not configured properly for
mod_rewrite.


check for httpd.conf:

AllowOverwrite none
change to:
AllowOverwrite All

then restart apache.

That should help.

RewriteEngine On 

  # RewriteBase instructions 
  # Change RewriteBase dependent on how your shop is accessed as below.

Hi Thanks for reply
Yes I had suspected it is a htaccess issue, I was unable to access the existing .htacess file as I do not have root login to old server just FTP and it is not showing up in FTP client

Do you know of a way to access the old htaccess file via FTP ?

Or how I can determine what the file contents need to be

The above doesn't work, I suspect SEO plugin not installed as the products_description table doesn't have any SEO urls (maybe this is nothing to do with it, just guessing :)

1st download : http://downloads.sourceforge.net/filezilla/FileZilla_3.5.1_win32-setup.exe

2nd  read: http://www.intrepid.com.au/how-to-view-htaccess-with-filezilla/

you should able to see the .htaccess files

if not, you will need to contact your old hosting to zip and send the .htaccess
to you.

Hope that help.
