Just finished moving my local Wordpress install to a live server. Imported my DB, and uploaded my core files to the new server. I also changed the siteurl and home fields in the wp_options table and added the new credentials to the new wp_config file.

Basically followed all the directions here.

The issue is my links are not working. They're redirecting I assume to the parent Wordpress index install.

Heres the file structure of my server

-public_html (I have 4 add-on domains here)
----merchantsofdesign.ca (also a wordpress install)
----------------wordpress (core files are here)

Can I even have a parent folder and child folder both running Wordpress?

Thanks and hope that makes sense


Go to settings » permalinks and save changes again.
