Support » Fixing WordPress » Moved WordPress Blog is not consistent with original blog

  • I am moving a WordPress blog for a client from GoDaddy to Bluehost and from one domain to another. I uploaded the files and moved the database per the codex instructions, and for the most part all looks well. However, the home page of the blog is supposed to have some text and a slider, but the text does not appear and the slider shows a static image. I’ve downloaded and uploaded the files and .sql file several times to make sure it’s all been moved over, but this is still a problem.

    This is the old blog: http://www.amberknowles.com/blog/
    And this is the new blog: http://www.theamberstudio.com/blog/
    They should be exactly the same except for the domain change. Could anyone shed some light on why they aren’t the same? Does there seem to be a file missing?

    – Open up your wp-config.php file, try adding the following to it:

    define( ‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘http://www.theamberstudio.com/blog’);
    define( ‘WP_HOME’, ‘http://www.theamberstudio.com/blog’);

    Doesn’t seem to have made any difference…

    -If that does not resolve the issue, access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin and manually check, in the wp_options table, the siteurl and home values and make sure they are correct.

    Make sure you backup everything (including your database) before doing any actions, just in case.

    Those are all correct, I did a find and replace on the .sql file before uploading it to phpMyAdmin so all the url’s would be correct.

    have you contacted your hosting provider and discussed the issue with them?

    No I have not. I’ll go ahead and do that.

    OK. Ask them, for example, if they have any other problem at their end, or they made any changes to your account, or if there are any limitations/restrictions, etc . Also check with them if you need to upgrade the hosting account in order to install and run your verson of the WordPress, etc.

    You might want to try velvetblues update URL plugin. I’ve used it and it works pretty well.
