    That is because you didn't change the URL in the settings of WordPress from the dashboard.

    you can do so manually from the database form the wp_options table. You should change the value of the first row, with option name siteurl.

    Refer to this document for more information: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    Can you let us know the old and new URL?

    If you have created a custom menu link, which is hardcoded URL, then you have to edit the menu manually.

    But I find it much easier and hassle free suing this plugin:


    to create a backup and install it on your destination site. It will update all the URL automatically for you without hassle.

    I'm moving my wordpress to a new server. I followed all the instructions, and and all went well - I THINK>

    but then when I try call up the login page for the firast
    time I get presented with a TEXT version (non graphic)
    of the wordpress. What I see is all correct but it's all
    text. hmmm.

    Humm... if you have uses duplicator, I have no clues, because that never happened to me.

    The only thing I can think of are:

    1. The *.php files don't have enough permission? See if all of them are set to 644.

    2. Is there .htaccess present? If yes, delete it (backup first if necessary).
