    Good morning,

    My brother asked me to make him a site in Joomla! which I duly did. When it came to the end of the free month's hosting with cloudaccess I backed the site up to a .jpa using Akeeba and yesterday I extracted it to his domain, parked with HostPapa, using kickstart. This is the first time I have used any of these programmes.

    The homepage works fine, as do external (facebook & amazon) links, but all the internal page links do not. I don't think the links are directing to the right place, looking at the address bar when I click through but after spending a long time examining the files through my FTP programme I can't tell where the pages are stores and so can't download to change and upload.

    The instructions I followed can be found here and my brother's site can be found here.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Dan

    Doesn't appear as the the DB was created on the new site ? Joomla is a database driven site and all od the contents are in a db.

    Not really familiar with joomla, but I've seen this to be a problem more than once, normally when you move a db, you have to reset the db username and password on the new server, or update the connection script in the code, with the new db username and password for the new db.

    Hi Webzarus,

    I created the new MySQL db on the new server and it certainly seems as though the .jpa extracted into it as it is 7MB odd in size. I think I'll just have to try the whole process again and see if it works.

    I'd be perfectly happy if I never used Joomla! again to be absolutely honest!

    No luck, still no internally functioning links. I've checked the settings in configuration.php too and all seems well.

    Hopefully someone else who's had the same problem has managed to come through the other side & is willing to share their expertise!

    One can only hope - I don't know where I'd be without WDF!

    Would you like this thread moved to the Joomla forum? I think you'd have a better chance of an answer there.

    Yes please Alphamare - apologies for posting in the wrong section, I didn't realise there was a Joomla! forum!

    Thank you for your help.
