    Hi There,

    Sorry to hear about a disastrous move. That's always hard to stomach.

    I sense that

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/rubia86/public_html/wp-config.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/rubia86/public_html/wp-load.php on line 30

    is due to a incomplete WordPress installation.

    What can be done is to backup your WordPress database and reinstall WordPress again. You may lose some of your plug-ins and theme settings but as long as your database is in tack everything should be fine.

    Hope this helps,

    Cheers!

  3. You don't need to do a new install for that you know. You CAN just re-upload the files.

    Make sure you DO NOT delete the following:
    wp-config.php
    .htaccess
    /wp-content/ (THE WHOLE FOLDER)
