As the title implies, I am working with a copy of a live Magento site that has been placed in a subdomain. We have applied a new theme and have done some other customizing. We are now trying to test it on the live server through a subdomain.
When I had first copy/pasted the entire folder we worked on into the subdomain, I went through the usual steps: uploading the database and deleting the local.xml. Those steps went flawlessly.
At the Magento installation wizard things went awry. It seemed as if CSS files weren't loading (no styling) as well as JS files (no functionality such as being able to click on the "continue" button.)
Voila, install wizard was styled and functional. Went through the steps, no issues with database connection, etc. Now onto the Magento admin panel, we're having a similar issue. No styling at all but links are functional.
When I use Web Console on product pages this time, there are plenty more files that come up in errors. Half are CSS and JS. This time they don't pinpoint a specific file path since it generates per product page.
So my main question, was there something we could've done while uploading to the staging subdomain that would've retained the original permissions? Some way to match everything to the live site so that everything that should execute does?
Please feel free to let me know if I need to post screenshots or be more specific about the matter.
