[resolved] Problems with moving my WordPress from 1and1 host to Gatorhost - Cannot login (5 posts)

    Hello there,
    I have had to move a few of my installed websites from 1and1 uk to Gatorhost and have downloaded each site folder and re-uploaded it to gatorhost in a folder.
    The first problem i came across was "Error establishing databse" so i exported my old database via the sql my admin panel and imported it to the gatorhost panel.
    Now the site loads: http://findaplacetostay.uk.com/digipixeldesign/clients/taliesinholidayhome
    BUT when i try to login at http://findaplacetostay.uk.com/digipixeldesign/clients/taliesinholidayhome/wp-admin/ it just keeps taking me back to the old URL of the old address (http://www.taliesinholidayhome.co.uk/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Ffindaplacetostay.uk.com%2Fdigipixeldesign%2Fclients%2Ftaliesinholidayhome%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1)

    can anyone please help me so that it points to the correct page after loging in.
    Also is there an easier way to copy all of the rest of my sites onto the new server without having to import and export sql files and edit them manually ect?
    Thanks a lot

    Your database is still pointing at the old url most likely.

    If you still have access to your old admin area, use WP Migrate DB.

    If you don't, try out this script. Make sure to delete it when you're done!

    thank you!
    I have just realised that although i have changed servers and location of the folder to a new directory, it will still be at the exact same address as soon as i change the domain settings to point to the new domain location.
    Will i still need to do this?

    Oh you hadn't updated the name servers?

    If it's the exact same url, no, you won't need to go through those steps.

    hi, please could i request that this thread is deleted please or the links are hashed out, its due to privacy reasons & web spiders from my other site.
    Much appreciated
