I know it’s got to be user error, but I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. I’m using an alternate web address while I try to transfer my domain names.
I downloaded WordPress, changed the config folder name and the database details as below:
define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘db161126107’); // The name of the database
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘dbo161126107’); // Your MySQL username
define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘******’); // …and password
define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘db348.perfora.net’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
I then used Wise-FTP to move my files to the root directory (I don’t want a subdirectory). When I look at the FTP using internet explorer, it shows 23 files in the WordPress folder. All the files that are supposed to be there. Yet when I go to the website/admin install, I get a 404 Error that says the URL doesn’t exist. Where did I go wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This move to WordPress was a bit of a leap for me, since I’ve never dealt with hosting of any type before, and I’m frustrated with myself for not being able to get it right.
