I need help to understand and fix redirect
I installed the latest stable version of Vanilla about 3 months ago on my website and got the single sign on to work using the older simpler method. I forget it's name. Then, after several months of incident-free running, I decided to move to a new server. I moved a copy of the PHP scripts over to the new server and copied the database.
Testing on the new server: When I clicked the link to go to the forum it came up NOT FOUND (404).
My PHP statement that gets me to the forum was

I've got two questions. Is there some option I need to set to get this different server to do what the old one was doing, namely go to the right page instead of giving me a NOT FOUND ?
And how does the script in my Vannila Forum (the one that's working) take a redirect of "/vanilla/entry/jsconnect?client_id=123456&Target=discussions" and get to pages that don't actually exist ?
Thanks for your time and anything you can say that helps me understand and migrate.
