Only homepage loads following migration (WordPress, nginx)

3942 views wordpress

following a migration from a shared platform to a private cloud server only the home page is loading.

After looking around the most common fix appears to be flushing the perma links and modifying the .htaccess with the following:

AllowOverride All

However the server uses nginx, after trying a .htaccess to nginx converter with the following code added to nginx.conf:

location / {
  if (!-e $request_filename){
    rewrite ^(.*)$ /index.php break;

However I had no luck with this.

Any assistance is appreciated - I hope this is sufficient information but let me know if not.

Thank you.

Rename .htaccess to some other name, lets say .htaccess1, then go to Settings -> Permalinks, Select Post Name and hit save. It will generate new .htaccess and see if it fix the issue.
