Loading Content from one site to another

  • My client had her original blog on mommyslittlemonsterblake.com (it is not being redirected to carriellenbrown.com).

    I have her sql file from her previous host (DreamHost) so I can transfer the content to her new hosting (BlueHost) company and new domain name.

    I have done this tutorial here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup and have loaded it to the correct database and none of the data is showing up on her new domain name (carriellenbrown.com).

    Can someone please help me!?

    I have her sql file from her previous host

    this sql is from from whta version of WP?

    Make sure that your wp-config.php for carriellenbrown.com is using the correct database settings for the database into which you imported the .sql backup. If it is, check the database itself in PHPMyAdmin and see what the table prefix is for your tables. Then edit wp-config.php and make sure that your table prefix is set to be the same thing that is actually used in the database.

    You may have multiple installs in the same database, each with different prefixes. If so, try each prefix.

    I got this figured it out. I finally had to create a new database and upload the sql file again to the new database. For some reason the original database did not work!

    Thanks again all for the help!
