Albert He: pages and posts are getting 404

Albert He: This question is related to account:

George T.: Hello! Nice to have you over the LiveChat!

Albert He: hi

Albert He: how are you

George T.: I am great, thanks for asking, how about you?

Albert He: the site

Albert He: all page and post links are getting 404

George T.: I will gladly assist you!

George T.: May I ask you for the login details to the WordPress dashboard in order to check the permalinks from there?

Albert He: I’ve fixed the issue. I found that the .htaccess file was changed and backed up as “.htaccess.180828203641.orig”

Albert He: what was happened?

Albert He: it as happened on 2019-09-23

George T.: Let me check if some of my colleagues from the ticketing team worked on the website at this period

Albert He: thanks

George T.: As I see the last ticket is from 07/08/2019 so the change is not done by our colleagues from the ticketing team.

Albert He: no, that is not related

George T.: Indeed the ticket is from long time ago, is there anyone else with access to your account with us or cPanel?

George is a person who will always do his best to help you out with all the questions that you have while you trying to set up your website or add new functionalities to it. He is from a doctor’s family however his real passions are computers and technologies.

What does George love doing when he is not working?

In most of his spare time, George is creating mind-blowing 3D animations, which he believes will become your children’s favorite! Sometimes, when he wants to get away from all the fuss of the modern world, he goes to the mountains, where he rides his bike, just to clear his mind or takes awesome pictures of the landscape. Another great passion of his is snowboarding.

What does George say about his experience at SiteGround?

“When I first started at SiteGround I was a little bit scared of all the new things I have to learn and I wasn’t sure that this will be the best job for me. Now I am confident that SiteGround is a place that I can call second home.”
