I'm having troubles migrating a Drupal 5 site. I don't have direct access to the original site, but I've been given the Drupal source files and a dump of the database.
When I upload the database to my local server and alter the settings file to connect to the database I can access the first page, but nothing else (eg: nothing within the admin area). When I click on any other link I get a generic HTML file with just one string of text in it. I can't even tell how the file is being generated, it's the oddest thing.
I'm really thrown off because I move Drupal 6 sites all the time, and although I do run into all sorts of problems related to file paths, a few search/replace queries in the database seem to fix most of those problems
So I'm wondering if there is something specific to Drupal 5 that I should be doing (but that I'm not aware of). Perhaps the database is corrupt?
I'm at a loss here!
