How can I change hosts retaining all my settings and posts?
Try looking at the docs?
Just finished changing hosts, and found the section called “Moving” on this site helpful: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/
If MySQL versions are different (old host=older version) this thread includes a handy fix: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/122892?replies=5
I’m using this tutorial:
I’m up to the part where you download the database for the second time but when I go to the admin cp it re-directs me.
You do know that you can now export from admin?
OK I’ve done something really wrong…
What I’ve done is I’ve eported from host. Changed the url in options to my new one. Exported from Php admin and now I’m stuck with two non-working sites…
