I currently own a website that is hosted as a sub-site on another host (so the url is like “mysite.hostname.com”). I bought a hosting package with Dream Host, and with it my own domain name. I am trying to figure out how to properly transfer the data from my old site (which is online and has 400 active users and such), but I seem to be running into errors. I have successfully transferred the database tables and data, and I thought I transferred all of the files correctly, but when I try to go anywhere besides the index page I run into this error;
The requested URL /adopt was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I made sure to change my data in the configuration files for my website, so I’m quite perplexed by this error. I don’t understand why the index page is functioning, but the rest is not.
When I look at my site directory via FTP I see there are several folders already there, and I presumed that the one named after my site (…/catisserie.net/…) was Dreamhosts’ version of public_html directory…did I assume incorrectly?
I hope this post is understandable…I really appreciate any help that anyone could offer.
