  • carolineinthecityblog


    I have been trying in vain to migrate my blog from to self hosted through BlueHost. I purchased my domain name through Google while my blog was on Blogger. I then migrated it to, so my domain name is redirected from I have exported my files from my blog and installed Simple Scripts into BlueHost, but when I am taken to the login screen, it is the screen and I am unable to login at wp-admin. What is the step I am missing to upload my files to my new site?

    I’m sure there is some redirect issue but I am not technically savvy enough to understand.

  • FTP into your site or use the File Manager in your Bluehost cPanel and edit the wp-config.php file.

    Add the following line:


    Save and exit then go to and it should update the correct url.

    If that works you can then remove the above line. Else try adding the following to your wp.config.php:



    /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    Changing in the snippet above to your actual url.

    If your URL is incorrect, it will cause that issue. If you add the lines to your wp-config.php, you’ll have to remember to rely on those rather than your database entries, which can also prevent your editing those settings in your WordPress dashboard. Try checking it and editing it in your database directly. See:

    Did you change name servers at Google as they are registrar so that domain name points to bluehost
