Support » Installing WordPress » Changed Hosts, Transferred all files, Blog Error…

  • I recently had to get off of my former employers server after leaving the company and got my own server package through since that’s where all of my domains are.

    I signed up for the deluxe package which allows you to set up 1 domain as your main domain, then you create addon domains under that domain. So I made folders for each of my domains and transferred files to each of them accordingly.

    Everything seems to work fine, except for the site that I had wordpress installed on. I took all files exactly as they were before and put them in the addon domain folder for that particular site and I am getting the error seen here:

    I am thinking that maybe I need to edit some information in a config file or something along those lines? I found another topic here that I thought would be helpful but I don’t really follow what this person did, nor am I sure if that’s what I should be doing:

    This topic seems to focus more on an error that is ocurring because they have a blog on their main site AND and addon. My problem is just having issues with a blog in one of the addon domain folders.

    I also cannot login to that wordpress account since the login page is doing the same thing…so that makes it impossible for me to look into the blog options. Does anyone know if there is another way to get into my login area with this error going on?

    Can anyone help me out? If I’m not being clear about anything please let me know. I hope I didnt lose the blog!

    Thanks in advance!

  • wp-config.php has your database information from your previous site.

    did you copy the database?

    I have that file, yes. I copied the entire directory from the previous server which included all the php files…wpconfig.php being one of them. Is that what you mean?

    I’ve read that maybe I need to “import” that somehow but I’m not sure how to do that since I can’t login to my site at all.

    assuming you have phpmyadmin you can export your database from your old server then import to the new one

    Is phpmyadmin something I deal with on my server or software? I definitely don’t have any experience with stuff like this but I can usually do what needs to be done if pointed in the right direction.

    I am on a mac by the way, if that matters….
