Re: 404 errors – fresh install
Make sure you check out the new paths compared to the old ones. If your directories aren’t named correctly and things aren’t in the right spot, it’ll kick those 404’s out all over the place.
i.e. make sure your buddypress stuff is all in wp-content >> plugins >> buddypress >> “all files” vs the old mu-plugins >> “all files” path.
Maybe someone else knows, does this database fit perfectly with the old versions? Could Wildchild do the 100% fresh install and then just put the database data in?
