I developed a small WP site for a client locally, on my Mac, using MAMP. I moved the site to the client's present host, Dotster, to replace her current, non-WP site with it. Unfortunately, the WP site isn't working: I get "page not found" errors when trying to access the login page as well as the index.php page. The other site is still in place, and still loads when you access the url. I want to keep the other site in place until I know the WP functions properly.
The WP files are in the /wwwroot directory, while the current site is in a subdirectory named with the site url, shoppingforhealth2011.com.
I created a "dump" of the database, did a search and replace to change all the URLs from "localhost" to the live URL (http://shoppingforhealth2011.com), created a database on the new server, imported the dump file, and checked to make sure the options were correct. I then uploaded all the WP files, along with an updated
I've been researching for many hours to get to this point (and am grateful for all the hints I found here in the forum) but still haven't worked it out.
Thanks in advance for any help! The client is tired of waiting, alas!
