404 after uploading Wordpress site

404 after uploading WordPress site

1 min read

One thing that seems like a mystery with WordPress – depending on how you upload your local WordPress site to your remote / live server, every page other than the home page seems to result in a 404. I have no idea why this happens, but the fix below always seems to work for me.

Login to the admin panel of the live site, the go to: Settings / Permalinks, and simply click the “Save Changes” button. If you refresh your 404 page now, it should display correctly.
