I am trying to move a site from a test subdirectory to the root domain.
I was having trouble getting the backup to automatically populate to the remote path on the new server, even though it said the transfer was successful, so I just manually moved the backups and sql file created by WP Move to the backups folder on the new server via FTP.
I then went into the new installation and used the WP Move "Migration Assistant" to restore. Everything worked, but I cannot log in to WordPress at the new installation. When I go to domain/wp-admin it forwards me to the old sub-directory domain/subdirectory/wp-admin and I get stuck in a loop. The only way to log in is to manually go to domain/subdirectory/wp-admin in my browser.
I'm guessing this happened since I used manual backups. Is there something more I need to edit or modify?
