    First of all I did a search to see how to move a blog from an old host to a new host as below.

    I downloaded the site to my hard drive and then uploaded to the new host...

    I set up a mysql database in cpanel of the new host.

    I changed the wp-cogif.php file to the db and user name.

    All the files are on the new host in public_html

    but the site is a brand new wordpress site not the site I transferred.

    http://www.goldcoastmakeupartist.com/

    Have I done anything wrong?

    now you still need to import your database that you backed up in step 3
