[resolved] Moved to new host/domain - Issues (2 posts)

    Alright, so I recently moved from a free web host to a paid web host. Things are strange.
    First of all, my wordpress was in my root directory on the old installation "/public_html" and now it is on "/public_html/wordpress". I'm not sure if that matters, but I think it does.

    I backed up the DB and saved it, uploaded to my new web host. Made a new table first and changed the login/DB name in wp-config.
    I downloaded all the old files in the "/public_html" folder and uploaded it to "/public_html/wordpress" and I thought everything would be fine.

    It's not, I'm sure I just missed a small detail [I do that].
    The issue? It's showing the contents of my config file when I navigate to my site, "ipaddress/wordpress/"

    Please help me out? Don't be afraid to ask for code.

    My solution was to simply delete wp-config.php and build a new one through the browser.
