I am changing web hosts/servers. I downloaded via ftp all my folders and files from my old host/server and then uploaded them all to my new host/server via ftp.
Before I move my domain name / point domain to the new host, I wanted to make sure the site was working via my temp url on the new server (http://boweeb.ipower.web) but I get an error message saying that there was a problem connecting to the database.
I exported my wordpress database ver1004206012234 from the old host/server, but it won't finish importing to the new host/server, it keeps saying the database already exists. My new host told me to create the database, how else can I import?
Please excuse my ignorance, I am not a programmer or expert. I was unhappy with GoDaddy and wanted to move my site to IPowerWeb.
Can someone help me get my site moved successfully, so then I can move my domain?
