Okay so I have an issue when I attempt to move my site from one server to another. The issue is that when I move it to the new server the site has reverted back to the default WordPress settings,without any of my original content,plugins etc.
I did the following:
1) Downloaded whole original site folder onto Harddrive via FTP.
3)Changed wp-config file info to match new database.
4)Uploaded database content to new database.
5) uploaded folder to new server via FTP to address http://www.newsite.com/wordpress
Now when I go to that link instead of being the old site that I wanted on the new server I am brought to the WordPress default installation screen. Then that brings me to the default site.
All I want to do is move from one server to the next and it seems straight forward enough accept why is it going to the default?!?
