Blank page when moving site without moving database? (2 posts)

    I moved a wordpress site and followed this guide: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress.

    But I don't want to move my database to a new server, I want to use my old database and just move the site to a new domain/server.

    So I just changed the site URL and transfered the site to the new server using ftp, leaving the database settings in tact in wp-config.php.

    But when I try to view my site at the new server it is blank. I can't access wp-admin either.

    What have I done wrong and how do I fix it?

    In the config file you'll need to point to the URL of the old server running the database. It probably currently reads 'localhost'.
