Support » Installing WordPress » Moved directory but does not work

  • Hello,

    Recently I moved my “wordpress” folder contents into my main directory because of a change in blogging script. After I did so my blog turned to:

    http://mingo.lilium-cruentus.net/

    I am wondering how I may fix this.
    btw, when I ran the “installation” guide it says wp has already been installed.

  • Could use this http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/ to set your siteurl and blog values to http://mingo.lilium-cruentus.net/

    Or just DROP your database tables via phpMyAdmin and visit http://mingo.lilium-cruentus.net/wp-admin/install.php to affect a new installation.

    I could not find the wordpress database on phpmyadmin. I added my mysql database username to the “users” section of localhost. I haven’t really used phpmyadmin before, so I basically don’t really know how to even connect my mysql database to the phpmyadmin server. Please help?

    It looks like your host offer phpMyAdmin, so ask your host how to access phpMyAdmin.

    Of course you could just reinstall WordPress by changing your $table_prefix in wp-config.php to something different and WordPress will want to install a new set of database tables.

    But you really should learn how to access your database with phpMyAdmin.

    Similar problem. Installed 2.7 in new directory. Copied theme and plugins, activated everything. Want to use existing database – set it in wp-config but it isn’t accessing the existing db.

    How to set up for new install to access existing db.

    How to set up for new install to access existing db.

    Make sure the info in wp-config;php is correct and that the $table_prefix is the same as previously used.
