Problems moving host (4 posts)

    I have just moved hosts.

    I backed up my SQL file and thought that would be enough to get me going with my new provider.
    When I follow the instructions from http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/restore/ everything appears ok. I can log in to the admin page and see all my old posts and settings. The problem is when I try to view my actual site it just come up with a blank white page.

    Does anyone know how to fix this ?

    Thanks

    Check your themes - or try changing to another.

    Thanks PODZ ! I had already gave this a try. But I set everything to default when I ran my backup so it should have picked up the default WP theme.

    I have found my answer, hooray !

    My new host has a slightly different path structure to my home folder. So once I changed the two settings below

    Destination directory
    URI of this directory

    It was all back to normal.

    Thanks again for the response Podz

    I think I'll add this to the pages above.

    Glad it's all sorted :)
