    Hi everyone, I’m doing my first site transfer involving a SQL file on GoDaddy for a client. The designer handed me these files/folders via a zip file in Dropbox:
    – the .sql file
    – the Uploads folder
    – the Themes folder, and
    – the Plugins folder

    Is this enough to recreate the site? I installed WordPress then made a first attempt using FTP and phpMyAdmin, but the files did not “clunk” into place like I had hoped (brewerykeywest.com). I might have done steps out of order, but I’m thinking I need more files from the designer, like the rest of the WordPress root files, and wp-config.php. Here are the steps that my assessment is based on: https://www.godaddy.com/help/moving-large-wordpress-sites-to-godaddy-6117

    I do have experience with WordPress and FTP, but any help for a site transfer noob would be greatly appreciated.
