Problem moving site to new host
Hi. I found a new host and I’m moving two sites over. One of them is a b2evolution site and the move went fine. The other is a WordPress site and I’m having problems. First, the domain name hasn’t changed — I just moved it to a new host. I uploaded all my files to the new host and proceeded to upload my old MySQL database to an empty database on my new host with phpMyAdmin. The upload in phpMyAdmin seemed to go well. Then I typed in my URL and got a message about installing WP. I probably shouldn’t have done it, but I clicked to install. During the WP installation, I got a few messages about tables already existing but I went through the 3 steps and prayed for the best. Now when I type in my URL I get what looks like my site, with the right CSS and everything — as well as my categories — but all my posts and the links I had in my link manager are gone.
My config file has been updated with my new database details. When I look at my new database in phpMyAdmin, it says 13 tables are in there, including wp_posts, wp_linkcategories and wp_links. I’m guessing I need to do something to these tables in phpMyAdmin? Any ideas? Any help would greatly appreciated.
