    o/s=xp pro
    wordpress version=3.4.1
    wordPress Move version=1.3.1
    from url= based
    to url=http://http://LAKEGRANBURYMAGAZINE.INFO dashboard based, no cpanal

    Moving to godaddy. WordPress Move Settings are
    username=xxxxx (it is correct)
    Remote Backup Path=/backup/ (no backup location on destination, so I created a new file: backup
    Passive mode=yes
    db chunk size=0
    file chunk size=10 mb

    When I go to Tools=>Migration Assistant, choose migrate!

    When Tools=>Migration Assistant screen loads, Alert Box with:
    “Stop running this script?
    A script on this page is causing IE to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.
    Yes No”
    Click No, nothing happens. Click yes, box disappears. Cannot get past this step.
    Tried ms/safari, same as above.

    Tried to uee “backup and move” plugin, says not tested on 3.4.1, it doesn’t work.

    What do I do? Any help apprecciated.

  • I can’t comment on ‘move’ plugins, etc. but I have found it most reliable to move sites manually. ie:

    – use cPanel (or whatever your host uses) to make a backup of your site files
    – use pHpMyAdmin to export your database
    – upload the site files to the new server
    – manually create an empty database with cPanel
    – use phpMyAdmin to import the database
    – update the settings in wp-settings.php

    Of course, this assumes a willingness to tinker with the database. If you aren’t familiar with these, you might screw it up, but you can always wipe the slate clean and start over, as long as you still have your backups. Try reading

    Or, if this sounds like too much, maybe someone else will be able to help with the move tools you’re trying.

    Good luck!

    The receiving server is not cpanel based. I have not been able to figure out what goes where from the cpanel backup.


    Figured it out! Thanks Hedley!
