    It looks like a problem with the .htaccess file

    I saw this thread title and thought "no htaccess". It's a hidden file that you normally have to change a preference in your FTP client to view (eg Force Showing Hidden Files). if you copied your files manually, then I doubt very much the htaccess would have been carried across.

    1. Are all your folders in the same stack as the old site . Otherwise the links to them will be wrong. example: folder/(down 1 level to) page.php
    2. Has the site been set up yet (at least 24 hours) otherwise all the links will be wrong until that goes into effect.
    3. Is the DOMAIN NAME = www.your_site.com still the same ? or does it have a new domain name? if so, all the links of http:///www.yoursite.com/folder/page.php
    will all be wrong because of the URL pointing to the page.
    4. Is your site on top level , or nested within an existing site for a yourdomain.theirdomain.com ? as a subdomain ?
    5. Did you put your pages into the right folder on the new host? Public HTML, WWW root? or did you accidently dump them into cgi_bin, etc ? Check to see where your pages are residing.

    If the structure of your site and most importantly domain name hasn't changed , then this is obviously ion error due to the new host setting things up. Otherwise the folders and inside pages are not at the same levels as they were.

    .htaccess file is usually hidden if you use cpanel you can set to show hidden files .
    then you can transfer htaccess file too.
