    Hi,

    I am new to using WordPress but have used a variety of other Open Source PHP software in the past. I am trying to transfer an incomplete site from one server to the other and seem to have done ok so far. With one exception, I can't get the images to appear, or the links to work properly. I think it is something to do with defining the path but I can't see anywhere to do this. I have changed the SQL entry in wp-options and made sure the path in the admin is correct. Or perhaps the new theme is not functioing correctly. Basically I need this:
    http://82.110.105.93/printiton.co.uk/index.php
    to look like this:
    http://printiton.co.uk/
    any ideas?

    Help much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Clare

    ps. it might help to know that on the original server the site was in a folder called httpdocs but is now in a folder called public_html

    In my very limited experience of this manouvere it required a great deal of command line hackery in linux.

    hi,
    thanks for the reply but I'm not sure I understand what you mean!!

    What sort of code hacking? Where?

    Thanks

    If you didn't change the two URI values in the admin > Options > Geberal before the move - then go here:

    Or, if you don't like to mees around with phpMyadmin, use this:
