Problems migrating buddypress: permalinks, unstyled content, and .htaccess

    Okay so I have been locally developing a buddypress site. My site address has been localhost:8888 for development. I am using post name for permalinks. I have the site in my root directory.

    I have .htaccess set up as follows, I have mod-rewrite set up properly (I installed wordpress to the new server and used pretty permalinks before migrating to make sure everything was set up properly and it worked).

    `
    # BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress
    `

    Now after moving I am getting 404 errors, but more importantly, my paths are being shown as “weburl.weburl/members/” instead of “weburl/members/”. I simply did the find and replace on all the database before I moved it over to the server.

    Finally, the most interesting error I am having is that the dashboard is completely unstylized. It looks like the CSS has disappeared and everything is just listed one after the other. The actual pages also look weird as if they have partial css.

    Has anyone encountered this same problem? I would really appreciate any help you could offer!

    In addition, if I go to mysite/members/stevemacn/profile/edit it will take me to mysite/members/stevemacn/profile/edit/mysite/members/stevemacn/profile/edit/mysite/members/stevemacn/profile/edit/mysite/members/stevemacn/profile/edit/mysite/members/stevemacn/profile/edit/mysite/members/stevemacn/profile/edit/mysite/members/stevemacn/profile/edit/mysite/members/stevemacn/profile/edit

    I am unsure if this little clue will help anyone discover the problem but I thought it was worth mentioning.

    The admin page looks something similar to this but without the banner at the top. http://imgur.com/vwjjr.jpg

    @steve_macneil something obviously went awry with your migration from dev to production site. Backup your dev database first and try this http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/duplicator/ required PHP 5.3 or higher
