I recently switched hosts from Topcities/Serverpro to HostGator.
Before I switched, I backed up all of my files from the root of my website hosted by Topcities at http://www.verysmartdesign.com, onto my computer.
I am now with HostGator and went to copy and paste all of my files within the public_html folder (including my wordpress folder/files), and my site is not working, and I am not able to log in.
I did go into my wp-config file, and even quick-installed a copy of wordpress and copied the database info from that wp-config file, however I did not see any of my posts/pages from when my website was hosted at topcities. I am now getting the “Error establishing a database connection” message.
My wordpress installation is located within http://www.verysmartdesign.com/w … Do I need to delete all of the files in the root of my HostGator, and copy over all of my backed up folders from the root of my Topcities backup (.cpaddons, .cpanel, .htpasswords, access-logs, etc, mail, public_ftp, public_html, tmp, www) for my files to show up and to be able to login correctly?
