I'd like to post an issue [NOW SOLVED] I had an that make me go almost mad...
I'm posting it just for the sake of the other users (I couldn't find a response to such an issue in other posts)
Have I read the related troubleshooter articles above before posting (which pages?)? yes (pages: "Special VirtueMart considerations and things you need to do to move sites with VirtueMart on another host/server/domain/directory") ("Common issues on restored sites and how to solve them" and next pages)
Have I searched the tickets before posting? yes
Have I read the documentation before posting (which pages?)? yes (troubleshooting about restoration and search tickets about virtuemart)
Joomla! version: (2.5.14 Stable) Virtuemart Version: (2.0.24)
PHP version: (5.4.6-1ubuntu1.4)
MySQL version: (5.5.32-0ubuntu0.12.10.1)
Host: (I'm restoring ON A LOCAL SERVER a backup made on a live RochenUK hosted website)
Akeeba Backup version which took the backup: (Akeeba Backup Professional 3.7.10 (2013-06-29))
Kickstart version used to extract the backup: (3.7.0 and Kickstart-pro-3.7.1)
My original site server's PHP version was 5.3.22 and my current PHP version is 5.4.6-1ubuntu1.4
Description of my issue:
I tried to restore and only the home page was working (index.php).
It happend in the past but I solved it just setting to "No" the Url rewriting in Global configuration.
I SOLVED IT WITH A FRESH BACKUP SETTING Adds Suffix to URL TO "No" BEFORE BACKUP the live site.
Then was enough to disable Url rewriting after restoring.
Thank in advance,
all the best,
