Hi all,


Any Wordpress gurus out there? I am trying to help port a Wordpress site, but have never used Wordpress before. I have setup an Ubuntu 12.04 server with a LAMP stack and had no trouble installing Wordpress from the repository, including pointing apache at the appropriate folder. I then blew away and imported the  database for the site and copied the wp-content folder to /usr/share/wordpress. Wordpress admin comes up fine and I patched the wordpress address and site address.


The content seems to be there as I can access and edit pagest from Wordpress admin, and the home page comes up fine. The problem is that none of the links resolve,  I just get 404 errors. These links of course resolved on the original site. The Apache log simply states ‘File does not exist’. The paths look correct as for example I have also tried using the page id such as which generates the same error.


I saw something about doing a search and replace with a serialize aware tool, but the only place I see URLs that could be replaced are in the guid field of the wp_posts table, where I also saw that those should not be touched. I am not seeing links of the form appearing in that column anyway, so don’t think that is the problem.


I think I patched the configuration files correctly because the home page comes up properly, can access the appropriare database, etc.


Any ideas what I should be looking for?
