404 error on all pages

I have a multi-site configuration working on 1 server, which is a development environment. I set up a dual WP server + mysql server & loadbalancer to be used as an acceptance environment, and installed WP on it. Everything seemed to work fine at first, but when I imported the pages from dev to acceptance, every single page results in a 404 error.

    Hello Bjorn,

    I hope you are having an amazing day!

    What method did you use to import the pages (e.g., a plugin, editing the db directly or other)? Is this the only thing you've imported, also (no posts, plugins, uploads, etc)?

    Can you still access the Dashboard and admin pages? If so, try going to Settings -> Permalinks, and simply click on the Save Changes button.

    You could try using our Snapshot plugin to move content to your fresh install, although I have never tried that one with a dual WP behind a loadbalancer. Nevertheless, here's a detailed article on moving a site with it:


    Looking forward to hearing back from you!

    Warm regards,
