[resolved] After migrating from fatcow to a Small Orange hosting, my dashboard is empty. (2 posts)

    I decided to migrate (very far) away from fatcow hosting and instead went to asmallorange (which for the moment I very much recommend). SO after copying the whole contents of my websites into my new FTP at ASO I tried to log in to my dashboard at my main site and the whole right side of the dashboard is missing. I can see my front end perfectly, but only the menu on the dashboard.

    I should mention that my domain is the same as previously.

    What I've tried:
    - clearing cookies
    - different browsers / computers
    - renaming plugins/themes folders
    - renaming .htaccess file
    - checking siteurl in wp-options table

    Now, I do have a clue to what the problem can be. When I first migrate all my sites, the only one that didn't work was my main domain (faraggi.org) but the others worked fine. So I contacted ASO support and they helped me resolve my problem. This is the answer they gave me when asked what they did exactly:

    "What I did is simple change of document root in the cPanel user file, nothing you can do from your side :)"

    He did this because the document root for my main site had to be in a subfolder and not in the main directory (because I have several different wordpress sites installed).

    I have searched for this same problem but can't find it in the forum.

    Anybody know where this can come from?

    Ok, so just if anybody has this same problem as me. I solved it by installing the wordpress update manually (I couldn't on click update it because it wasn't visible) and then the dashboard was again visible.

    I tried everything listed above and much more to solve it but the only thing that really worked was the update.
