"Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/.bangle/jzd3/blog.server.com/outbasket/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 304"
is the error I get when I either
- try to access my intended new location for a previously working blog (theme modified In-Business)
- try to login or administer either the old or new location.
The old location is still functional and I have local copies of it and of the default setup for the new location (both locations are directories on the same server, the original had been set up with the wrong name).
I was using Safari to follow the instructions at http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress - the first option, moving WordPress within your site (changing the URI).
at "6. Click Update Options" Safari got stuck bouncing back and forth between the old and new directories (repeated and irresoluble redirects), so I was not really able to do "7. Logout of your blog.", and in effect may have violated "i. (Do not try to open/view your blog now!)."
I then moved forward with "9. WordPress 2.0 only: Delete the folder wp-content/cache." and "10. Move your WordPress core files to the new location. This includes the files found within the original directory, such as http://example.com/wordpress, and all the sub-directories, to the new location."
I moved everything - and I do mean everything - via FTP'ing my local copies from the old directory up to the new one. I've done this twice now, with the same result.
