After moving to new server front end says OK, back end works fine

Post by maestroc » Sat Jan 02, 2021 7:19 pm

After moving a site from a linux cpanel server over to a linux based vps running plesk the back end loads and works fine but the front end just shows a white screen with the word OK on it. I have viewed source and OK is the only thing being rendered on the page.

I have tried changing to various front end templates including atomic, protostar, and beez2 but all of them show the same OK with nothing else.

I noticed that the .htaccess file did not get restored when I used Akeeba to move to the new VPS. However if I try to create a new htaccess using the default htaccess.txt file then both front and back end show a 500 error.

Both the old and new server are running the same version of PHP 7.3.25.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Is there a index.html file in the root folder?
