  • hi guys, i need some help..

    trying to import a backup database but i keep getting:

    Internal Server Error

    The page you requested could not be served. This could happen for a variety of reasons, including:
    A CGI script failed to produce any output.
    The server is incorrectly configured.
    The server encountered a critical error.
    There may be more information about this error in the server’s error logs.

    we have currently moved hosting and im not that familiar with WordPress but i am learning as i go on..

    with the new host(names.co.uk) i have installed wordpress and also dropped in all the files via ftp from the old host.. at this point i noticed things werent looking the same..did some research and figured out i needed old database too(.gz file)..(found a backup of it)

    but after logging into MyPHPAdmin and following all the instructions i cannot get it to work???

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    The error has provided you with some “reasons” for this error.
    Have you discussed them with the Techs. of your hosting provider?

    you mentioned about changing hosting. Also, review this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_to_a_New_Server

    “did some research and figured out i needed old database too(.gz file)..(found a backup of it)”

    Extract the .gz file on your computer then attempt to import the SQL file using phpMyAdmin. A program like WinRAR can be used to extract .gz files.

    The SQL file is plain text. It will be much larger than the .gz file. I have in the past had problems with .gz files so I always save as .zip when I backup a database.
