Hello Fmilland,

One thing I do remember about Drupal is that it is very URL-oriented, meaning that when you move it, simply changing the settings and database may not be enough to fix the issue. IF all of the domain changes have been accounted for, I would first try resetting your URLS back to NON-friendly URLS, and then reset it back to friendly (SEF- search-engine-friendly) URLs. These will often require being recreated on a new server anyway. If you have tried resetting your SEF URLs and still have the same problem, please leave a comment at the bottom of this post and (if possible) give us more information so that we can duplicate the issue here.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

Regards,
