404 error after uploading website

After uploading my website to a different url, I’m having a problem. Only the home page is visible, all other pages give a 404 error message. I have done it again a number of times, checked the permalinks, deactivated all plugins, adjusted the WordPress version, removed Cornerstone and installed it again, but it does not solve the problem. Does anyone know how I can fix it?

You most likely forgot to copy the .htaccess file to the new website – which would produce this exact behavior.

Some file managers will hide those dot files by default. Look for an option to show hidden files and make sure to copy it over.

Problem is solved, thanks very much!
