Our Wp installations were starting to slow down dramatically. We were told that running 8+ Wp installations on shared hosting was to blame.
We have moved wp installs from shared host to shared host before, no big deal. Not so this time.
We can't get anything to work. one some sites, and error message son others. This is what we did.
1)Made backups of sql databases.
2)Downloaded all files from shared server
3)Created new sql databases on new server
4)Imported tables into new databases
5)Edited wp-conifg with new server settings
6)Tried to log in. ( We get a blank page)
This what we tried afterwards
1)Chmod permissions for wp-content and subfolders to 777
2)Rename plugins to old
3)Change plugin activate status in phpmyadmin
4)Tried a new wp instillation with hope of just importing xml export file.
We were able to get it installed, but we are having all kinds of permission issues. Cant change permalinks (cant write to .htacess), cant auto install plugins (cant write to wp-content) without using FTP access (which i never seen before today).
What did we miss?
