I really am in need of some help here.
I have a small test blog that I used solely for test purposes on my local machine. XP Pro – all updated. I had the blog working fine using Apache 2.2. And I wanted to run a second host instance for another unrelated system I’m trying out on the same machine. So I used what’s called “virtual hosting” in Apache. I moved (copied) the entire file structure from /localhost/wordpress (which was actually at c:/program files/Apache 2.2/htdocs/) to c:/svdp/wordpress. I did not touch mySQL nor PHP. I also introduced the other host software. The other host software works fine with the new virtual host container. The WP blog does not.
When I browse to http://blog (the name of the new blog’s virtual home according to Apache) I get a text version of the blog. No theme, very little formatting, no colors, no background – just plain text. If I click on any of the links on this “text only” website, I get a 403 (Yes, I’m on the admin account). The only link that works is one at the bottom pointing to the main WordPress.org site.
Thing I don’t get is why did it break when I simply moved it from one folder tree to another? I thought these things were supposed to be “portable”. There must be other files/structures that have to be moved along with it but I don’t know what they are. I know that this text-only website is the one I had working because, for instance the Title shows it is the one I set up.
Can someone please tell me what else I should “move” or copy to what postion, in order to get this back to a working state?
