I moved my site xyzsite.com to a new server. The domain is still xyzsite.com
When I goto the site on the new host after nameserver propagation I am getting redirected to http://www.xyzsite.com/wp-admin/install.php
Why am I being redirected to re-install WP ?
On the old hosting provider the wordpress install resided in a folder called /site which was in the root. So the actual url to the WP site was xyzsite.com/site/
This was done via HTACCESS.
To move the site to the new host, I exported the database from PHPMyAdmin
Zipped up the entire site, downloaded the zip file, then uploaded the zip file to the new host, extracted the zip file, imported the database into PHPMyAdmin on the new host.
I edited WP-CONFIG.PHP to reflect the new hosts database, database user, database password and database server host.
The database tables had a prefix of Truewp_ on the old host and I verified that they still have this on the new host.
Additionally, the W3 Super Cache was runnign on the old host, however I disabled the plugin and removed the setting from WP-CONFIG.php before moving the site to the new host.
What could be causing this to go to the WP install page?
