We just established a new Apache web server account, and they provided us with the FTP info and TEMPORARY web address (since our current site is still on another web host - the eventual address will just be http://www.skynursery.com). We installed the latest WordPress on it.

The temporary address is http://s1069063.instanturl.net/skynursery.com/ and if you click it, it takes you to the new site's (work in progress) homepage.

So far so good. The problem: any attempt to view an internal page (such as http://s1069063.instanturl.net/skynursery.com/products/) results in a page not found.

We've built many wordpress blog themes and installed them on many web hosts, but this is the first time something like this has been encountered. I think it may have to do with the temporary address? (although we've set up many on temporary addresses before, but this is the first temporary address with a subfolder in its name).

Here is the .htaccess file:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /skynursery.com/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /skynursery.com/index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress

Open in new window


Our permalinks settings are set to use the Post Name option:
http://s1069063.instanturl.net/skynursery.com/sample-post/

 Has anyone else run into this? Any ideas on what we can do/try?

thanks experts!

>>Please check site name in wp-config.php
I don't understand - there is no site name in wp-config.php. That file only contains a few define statements such as DB_CHARSET, etc. There is no site name setting in that file.

I found the solution - the web host requires that we manually re-sync the site's htaccess file by logging into the Control Panel for the account and clicking a link to resync the .htaccess file.  Once we did that, the links worked fine.
