Problem when moving my blog from old host Company to new Host Co,

  • My previous host company has shared with me a backup of my wordpress website, the new hosting company has 3.4 wordpress version and I have sccussfully restored the database and I moved the contents to new location through ftp.

    Now and after I did the first step, I do have problem when I am inquiring the website, it keep show me the following error message:

    The page isn’t redirecting properly
    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    I am not that expert but really I would like your help and support.

    Thanks

    What version of WordPress was running on your old site?

    I think it is WordPress 2.8.6.

    You cannot restore a 2.8.6 database dump into a 3.4 database. You would need to first install 2.8.6, restore the db backup and then update WordPress following the instructions in Upgrading_WordPress_Extended/

    But I restore the database and it shows the records are in the database (tables), I have checked it through phpmyadmin.

    I can see all the tables and data inside as well.
    How I can check if the restore is wrong.
