our client has a site running on WordPress 3.2.1 , and they are moving from their current host to us. Our server is a PLESK server.
I've done a database back up following the instructions on wordpress.org and downloaded all the files from the original server.
I've now published all the files up to our server, updated wp-config.php with the database info of our server, and imported the database, which loaded in fine, no errors.
So when I try to load the site, I get an error
Unable to create directory /content/Hosting/c/o/colinebrown.com/web/wp-content/uploads/2012/07. Is it's parent directory writable by the server?
Now that path seems to be what was used on the old server (the directory 'web' was definitely part of the old servers file structure, web is where all the files for wordpress were located)
please can someone help out here.
I've tried doing a clean install of wordpress on our box and then uploading the database, I just get a 404 error on the home page. I tried exporting from the old wordpress and importing into the new one, fail - 404 , missing files / pages.
Following the wordpress.org instructions on moving, this really should be straightforward, download, upload files, update wp-config.php, import database.
I have done that, but I'm getting the error above.
Really appreciate any assistance.
