    I am trying very hard to switch hosts. From hostIcan to crazydomains.

    I have so far, uploaded a full back up.
    Uploaded my old database. Both via FTP and via MyPhpAdmin.
    My name server is pointed at the right place.

    But I am getting these two error messages and don’t know what they mean or how to fix them.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_multisite() in /home/discover/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 505


    Warning: require_once(/home/discover/public_HTML/wp-includes/wp-db.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/discover/public_HTML/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3089

    I am VERY inexperienced here. I have very little idea what I am doing and getting this far has been largely trial and error.

    I am getting very little support from my new hosts and I am getting told by my old that they are about to delete discoverboo.com from their server’s because my account is now over due (on purpose, since I am changing)

    Getting a little concerned I will lose the last three years of my families life.

    Could you please help me!?

  • re upload your WordPress files, looks like some of them may not have uploaded correctly. If you are using the latest version of WordPress then I’d also suggest you download a fresh copy and upload that.

    Well when we installed a fresh version of wordpress it went to that first ever page (welcome to your site, please start editing now) and then when we uploaded my public_html from the OLD host it went hay wire.

    So what part of my public html do I need to upload just to get my posts back??

    I don’t care if I have to redo everything for wordpress (as in reformat my web site). As long as I don’t lose my posts I am happy.

    what version of WordPress did you have?

    Oh and you might want to review this:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    I did have 2.7. I haven’t bothered with an updated version for ages.

    I read the link you gave me and for what I am doing it says that if I am moving server’s but NOT changing domain names then all I need to do is edit my wp-config.php

    I follwed the directions best I could but it still comes up saying I need the file. I must be doing something wrong and I don’t know what!?

    Any idea’s??

    Well when we installed a fresh version of wordpress

    did you install the latest version of WordPress? You need to install the same version that you had on the old server.

    Am I still able to download that version??

    I have it now so I have wordpress installed. I have another post up now about trying to recover the posts/comments through FTP or sql file because I didn’t know about the import function through wordpress.

    Yes: http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/
