Support » Fixing WordPress » Moved to new host, themes won’t work

  • Resolved carrierawks


    I am moving from one host to another with quite a few WordPress installs, one of them though hasn’t come out just right and it looks like I have all the files in the new hosting account etc, but the themes do not work. Even when I download and try out a new theme. It comes out looking like this:


    I have done the following:
    – CHMOD everything I could think of.
    – Uploaded a new copy of WordPress minus config and uploads.
    – Edited my .htaccess file so it was down the to the bare minimum. (So permalinks work etc)
    – Did a happy dance for the server gods.

    Now I come to you guys…can anyone answer this? I have searched through these forums and I can’t seem to find my exact problem. (darnit) Any help would be appreciated thanks!

  • Seen that happen when the Blog and WordPress URLS in Settings->General are not correct.

    If necessary consider using phpMyAdmin to make sure your wp_options table has the correct values in siteurl and home.

    siteurl is your WordPress address (URL) and home is your Blog Address (URL).

    Update your permalinks.

    And, some other info:

    Thanks I have done everything you asked, I went into wp_options & I edited siteurl & home to say the url of the site ( ). That didn’t work either. Hmmmmm

    Could need to clear your browser cache.

    I ended up deleting a plugin called Web Optimizer by Nikolay Matsievsky and suddenly the website is happy and working. So if anyone ever has this problem try deleting/disabling a plugin or two and see what magically happens. 😛

    BTW Thank you Michael!
