Changing Host for website, moved all data but website goes blank after DB import (2 posts)

    Hi, I am changing host for my website and it contains a lot of data. I moved all the data in my domain folder under Public_html directory and then imported all of the DB from PhpMyAdmin. Before importing the database it was showing twenty thirteen theme and Hello world post but after importing it just shows a blank page without giving any error. Although the /wp-admin URL works fine. One time i used the WP Backup plugin and made a DB backup with it and it worked also but it is not working now, i've tried several times. Also I've tried importing every table in my DB and left the wp_options and it worked but the settings weren't there and also when i try to change the theme it again shows the same error.

    Please guys help, because i've been charged $2/day by my new host and my website isn't working now.

    Import your db backup to a new db (not to one already created by WP). Update wp-config.php to that db. Make sure all site files are present from old host. Perform a search and replace with PHPMyadmin and change the site and home url there also. Make sure domain is propagated and host setup is complete first.

    Have done this many times and that is the process in a nutshell. Note: a very large db backup file may need to be pushed up to new db in sections...discuss with host.

    Oh, and $730 a year for hosting is expensive (unless you have a huge # of visitors).
