Which script file needs modifying to get WP to work? (5 posts)

    I have just changed host and transfered my website via Vaultpress. My website, http://www.followtheboat.com, does not yet show and my host says it is a script file in root that needs modifying.

    Would this be .htaccess or my config file? What change should I be looking to make?

    Cheers

    In your hosts panel software, if you use one, did you point your domain at the correct location of your installation?

    Yes, it points to the root (ie where wp_config et al reside).

    So it is:

    http://www.followtheboat.com/readme.html

    OK start by temporarily renaming your .htaccess. Did you amend your wp-config.php to use your new database setting ?

    Hi,

    I have renamed my .htaccess file. The wp-config file does not need amending according to my host, but the 'script' file does. They allowed me to set up a test of my migrated site and all was well. Now that the domain transfer has gone through and the website is now live... nothing.
