Hi there, I am attempting to migrate an old installation of the secretary from one server to another. The old installation was using v2.3; this appears not to work with php 7.0, which I am using on the new server. So I installed v2.4 and imported the old database and theme. I have got everything working except the permalinks do not work — only the homepage. I get 404 errors for all other URLs. Can you help? Thank you!

    Problem solved: I missed the process of moving/renaming the htaccess file.
