    I just set up a blog , it was working fine . then i uploaded a database from my old blog via phpmyadmin. The import was successful, but the blog page went blank.

    I read on this site i need to change the text below in the wp-config file and add ai to the wp prefix in the file.

    $table_prefix = 'aiwp_';

    I did it and now I just get this message on the blog page

    "This web page has a redirect loop Reload"

    Installing WordPress on a new site and uploading the database from the old site usually won't work. This documentation in the Codex explains the only sure way that I know of to move a WordPress site, which is essentially what you are trying to do: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    I have now changed it so it maps the old website http://www.mysite.com/reviews/
    and i still get a white page.I have moved all the data from my old website into the same named folder.

    I assume the database is connecting because there is no username or password error.

    I was wondering does the database from my old website have a user name and password inside of it or does it take on the username and password of the database it is being absorbed into?
