I am moving hosts and
The procedure I used was to copy the old addon domain /addondomainname/ from my old host to my desktop folder, then uploaded it into the root of domain.com on my new host.
Then I exported and imported the wrp10.gz file from within Cpanel on old host to new.
Then edited the wp-config.php and changed the username, dbname and password.
Unfortuately WP then requested I run the install.php again. And things are back to the hello world post…
Where did I go wrong?
I’ve reimported the db with no luck.
Then I tried using the tutorial here:
Still no luck. I get this error in PHPMyadmin:
#1064 – You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1’ at line 10
Then once again WP asks me to rerun the install.php when I go to the site which reverts me back to a ‘hello world’ post with nothing else…
I’m using a different cpanel(host) username and password totally for these. So how can I totally realign the db in a case like this?
All help would be greatly, greatly appreciated.
