Wordpress Template Tags not being replaced after moving servers
Posted on 2012-04-04
I moved a wordpress website from one server to another. I basically copied all of the files to the new server, exported the database and imported it in the new server.
I can now access the home page, but none of the menu items or links work (they lead to 404 errors when clicked) and images are not displayed. Upon viewing the source code of the page, I can see all of the php template tags are still in the html. They have not been replaced as they should be.
The database appears to have been migrated. I did it twice to be sure. Same with the files. I copied them twice.
I'm running it on IIS 7.5 using MySQL. I tried a fresh install of wordpress to make sure I had IIS configured properly and it worked just fine.
