Moved installation won't save preferences

I am in the process of moving my Textpattern installation to a new hosting service. I copied the mysql database and all the files over exactly, and it mostly works. When I try to alter anything in the Textpattern preferences though, it says that it has saved them, but moving off of the page in the browser and returning shows the preferences unchanged. Any idea what has gone squirrelly?

Textpattern version is 4.5.7 (want to get it working before upgrading).

Thanks!

Re: Moved installation won't save preferences

are all the file paths in preferences reflected for your new installation? do you have MLP as part of your installation?

Re: Moved installation won't save preferences

All the file paths are correct. The installation seems to work fine, as far as browsing it. I’ve used Firefox and Chromium, and they both don’t work.

The IP address is the new website, since the original DNS still points to to old one.

Re: Moved installation won't save preferences

Are modifications to articles saved? If not, it could be some caching issue that influences the whole site.

Re: Moved installation won't save preferences

I don’t have any plugins, I don’ think. Modifications to pages don’t stick either.
