Okay I moved two wordpress sites to a new server. I uploaded both on the new server using a fresh download. Then I added my theme and plugins in those directories.
I imported the databases in phpmyadmin. Then when I change the config files from previous installs to have the correct database host and upload them, I just get blank pages over both sites.
I removed the config files on both and get a message that says:
There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn’t work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.
When I click Create a Configuration File (I was going to create a new one and then change the info) I get this:
The requested URL /wp-admin/setup-config.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
The sites are at virtuallylegal.net and snapoint.org
I currently have removed the config files and left them at the screens asking for one.
Thanks, this is making me crazy!
