Hi, I been with wordpress for a year,yet ashamed to say this, till now i am unsure of how to backup and restore wordpress correctly.
Imagine backing up of blog.domain.com and restoring to story.domain.com
Here what i did ,
step 1 - backup all files (wp-admin,wp-contents etc) and the .sql database from blog.domain.com
(did i do step 1 correctly?, cause this is what i always do to backup each websites, and i have 30 website files and .sql)
step 2 - upload all files (except wp-config.php) and upload the .sql database to story.domain.com
Here's the problem. My site would seem wierd or white screen when i navigate to it.
Step 3 - I heard from some user that i have to change the site url,and home url. What i did was when to phpmyadmin, change the site url and home url from blog.domain.com to story.domain.com in the .sql. Tried this but the site still become white screen.
Here is where i am stuck always.
Kindly go through and correct me which step i did till correctly
