So I transferred one wordpress site so far to a new server using the following:
1. Fully backed up my files via FTP and backed up my dbase.
2. Changed DNS to new server
3. Used IP and FTP to transfer files.
4. Used a program called MySQL Backup to Another. This program theoretically transfers all tables and data.
I have completed the process and everything is there, but my posts are showing as unpublished while showing on the actual site. They are also not referencing their original date/time post and are showing as current date/time.
