First of all I did a search to see how to move a blog from an old host to a new host as below.
I downloaded the site to my hard drive and then uploaded to the new host...
I set up a mysql database in cpanel of the new host.
I changed the wp-cogif.php file to the db and user name.
All the files are on the new host in public_html
but the site is a brand new wordpress site not the site I transferred.
Have I done anything wrong?
