Links don´t work on remote site

Post by ramonhm » Sat Sep 28, 2013 2:51 am

Hi:

I instal a Joomla 2.5.14 site on Godaddy host (from the Joomla installer of Godaddy aplications).. everithing works ok: http://www.ajidulcecatering.com/aji_dulce

Then I made a copy the site in other folder of the root directory (using Akeeba Backup Core 3.7.7) and surprise: "the links don't work" just the home link works well: http://www.ajidulcecatering.com/z_aji_copy. The error showed: Error: 404 - Category not found

Before run Akeebackup I build a new database that conected perfect with Akeebackup. I made the necesary changes in configuration.php (paths of: tmp and logs, public site, db name, db user, db password)

I fixed the permission and change the default prefix of the db using Admin Tools.

Before I tried coping the site manually using the File Manager of Godaddy (with out akkeba) but still the same error using the links (error 404)

So I really need this copy site to test a lenguaje bilingual site, new plugins and modules and I don´t want get in risk with php errors or any other troubles in my original site.

I´ll realy apreciate your help with this issue.

Thanks:
ramonhm

Thanks Johans for interesting in my "links issue".

Les try to explain you:
http://www.ajidulcecatering.com/aji_dulce Is my original site
http://www.ajidulcecatering.com/z_aji_copy Is obiusly the copy of my site.

The problem is in the second site (the copy): http://www.ajidulcecatering.com/z_aji_copy In this site just the "Home link" works perfectly, but when you click any other link apperars the 404 eror - no category found. if you click again the same link you be will redirected to the original site: ajidulcecatering.com/aji_dulce where everithing works perfectly.

It's just to watch the url changes above in the url line of the browser to detect the error..

I'll really apreciate your help:

Hi Johans and everybody.

I got the solution about my "links issue". Searching in the Spanish Joomla Forum I found the advice for a similiar case: Deactivate the "Search Engine Friendly URLs" in the SEO SETTINGS (Global Configurations/Site) and now all the links in my copyed site works with out problem....

Thanks... Gracias....
