    migration problem Link to this post

    I have a problem, I deployed Silverstripe locally so I can modify it easily. Now that I'm finished, I have to move it from local to live.

    I uploaded all the files and exported the database and imported them onto the live account. I changed the config file for database name and user. Once I was finished, I checked the site but all I get is a HTTP 404 - File not found. Why is this?

    here is some more detail regarding the matter:

    Working experimental site exists at:

    all the files are in a folder names stripe

    I migrated it to:


    What else do I have edit other than the config file (since I changed the db name and user)?

    You're almost there! You will have to change the .htaccess file which is located in the root directory of the installation - there will be a line that looks something like this:

    RewriteBase /stripe

    I'm not 100% but I think that has to be changed to:

    RewriteBase /draft

    or simply:

    RewriteBase /

    Yes, you are right. You have to change the RewriteBase in .htaccess. In that case: RewriteBase /draft.

    Best regards,
