Copying everything from one server to another ??? Nothing works now... (2 posts)

    Hey guys,

    Total newbie here... so be warned...lol..

    First of all, I designed my company's ecommerce website using WordPress and a few plugins and other stuff. It turned out great and works flawlessly. I was actually amazed at how well it worked with the plugins Im using for Paypal and other stuff. It turned out great for a guy that just learned how to do it a 3 days prior to starting the building of it. : )

    Here's the problem.... I recently parted ways with my business partner after all of the hard work I put into designing the website. He did nothing, I did it all. Prior to him locking me out of the server by changing the password, I downloaded all of the files on the server. ALL of them. Now I have no way of getting back in to do anything else.

    What I want to do is this... I want to make an identical website with all of the same graphics, text, designs, etc.... but with my new company logo, images and information obviously. I already have the new WP server with all of the files transferred over to the exact same place they were on the old server in the root directory. The site loads and works fine but whenever I click on a product, it loades it from the OLD site and the URL changes to the old site for that product. Also, now when I go to my WP-Admin login page, it is pulling up the OLD sites login page. Now what?? Am I screwed or what??

    Thanks in advance!!!

    You need to edit the home and site urls in your database.
