Going from Dreamhost to 1and1 – multiple problems
Before someone asks: Yeah, I tried the Codex. 🙂 Didn’t work, unfortunately. I also realize that these two have had issues before with WP – I’m hoping I can get it to work for me.
Now, initially I tried recreating by transfering all of the WP directories in the old server to the new one. It looks somewhat fine until I noticed that permalinks (single posts, archives, categories, etc) do not work.
(More related to PHP in general, but: Also, as you can see my headers aren’t either. I was using ALA’s Dynamic Font Replacement to replace the headers in the template. I’m meeting all the requirements, but I can’t figure out what’s going wrong. I tried out Image Headlines on the new server briefly, which is based on DFR – it works, but I need the ability to specify multiple styles.)
So, I thought I’d try to copy the database as well to make it as close to the original as possible. I backed up the database in phpMyAdmin then tried to load it into the other server. I got an error on “DEFAULT CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci;” and I imagine it doesn’t get better from there.
A lot of the content use direct links (template links, Flash, etc) that can be edited, but these are the problems I’ve had so far. There may be, and probably are, more. Can anyone be of assistance? I’d really appreciate it. Thanks. 🙂
