I have a wordpress site which i need to move to a new host, and if possible have the old installation working, incase i need a backup.
I have the following files on my harddrive:
Complete copy of root directory from old host
.sql backup of old database
.xml backup from wordpress > export
Last time i tried this i ended up not having the settings from my theme moved and on both the new and old installation they had double everything (double pages, posts, comments, menus, widgets).
I have been looking at http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress but since EVERYTHING will stay the same (using same DB name, prefix, user, pass), same file structure how can i move the blog correctly? This is a major site so if it stuffs up im seriously screwed, since i have clients like the BBC going to look at my work in a days time.
Please someone give me the correct method.
Thanks so much
