I currently have a wordpress blog on http://domain1.com/blog
I want to move this to http://domain2.com
This is what I did so far:
Installed WordPress (using fantastico) on http://domain2.com
Downloaded wp-content folder of http://domain1.com/blog using FTP and uploaded it to http://domain2.com
Exported sql database of http://domain1.com/blog (from phpmyadmin)
Replaced all occurrences of http://domain1.com/blog to http://domain2.com (using notepad++)
Imported this sql file to http://domain2.com (using phpmyadmin)
The problem now is…
I am unable to login to http://domain2.com/wp-admin/ using the username and password which was working fine when I installed.
Another problem is when I point my browser to http://domain2.com it displays the home page fine BUT when click on the pages, it throws a 404.
One more weird thing I noted it, after importing the edited sql my new domain’s admin user name has got changed back to the username which was referred by my old domain. How could this be possible? I had to login to my new domain’s phpmyadmin and reset the password to be able to login.
When I logged in… another surprise. I was able to see only ‘Dashboard’ and ‘Profile’ tabs. No other tabs (like Pages, Posts, Appearance, etc) were visible.
Can someone come forward to help me out with this issue please? It is a client’s site so can not give out the original data. But if you can be kind enough to help me fix this, I can mail you the details.
