I was wondering if you can figure this out.  I am experimenting transferring a website from one host to another.  The only thing is they are different domain names.  Same website! but different domain names.

Xcloner was brilliant in transferring everthing and I can access the website in the back end with no problems and I can view the front page fine, but when I try to navigate to other pages around the website, I get an 500 Internal Server Error.

Would you have any ideas?

the domain is  its just a domain name I never use so was experimenting transferring the whole joomla website from

I am wondering if the domain name was the same (diverting the domain name to the hosting) would everythign be fine.

I have tried to remove any reference from the icats website such as in the global configuration

But wanted to know your thoughts.


Chris 🙂

I found the problem.  It was the .htaccess file

I had to comment out the line below

from # RewriteBase /

to RewriteBase /

Hi folks,

I have kind a sililar experience, since I upgraded to Joomla 2.5.18. At the same time I've installed the Admin Tools 2.6.0 and activated the password protection, with .htaccess. This would indicate somehow a problem with the .htaccess configuration.

When starting the Xcloner (v 3.4 from May 2013) it takes a while before seeing the Internal Server Error.

I read the previouse thread: http://www.xcloner.c.....ll-1-5-26/

Here, the admin suggests, to check for the administrator/components/com_xcloner-backupandrestore folder and to upload a .htaccess file, to liberate security rules in this directory.

I just used the expression:

  RewriteEngine off


However the Internal Server Error persists!!!

I would be very happy for any suggestions.

Thanks in advance!
