Transfering Site (6 posts)

    I needed to upgrade my hard drive on my server and wanted to transfer the web site from the old hard drive to the new hard drive. I set up the web server with everything installed, Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc...

    I go to copy everything from my old hd to the new hd, when I go and access the site it says that "it looks like you haven't yet set up wordpress, click here"

    Can someone help me and tell me what I need to do to get everything running, with the old database so I don't lose any of the information.

    Thanks.

    I moved every file the exact way they were on the original hard drive.

    I also just moved the database over, copy and paste. Is there something more that I am supposed to do?

    Thanks.

    On the right there are guides to moving wp - hopefully one hits the spot for you ?

    Looks like I need to go about and actually creating a back up within mysql. I guess copy and paste doesn't work. I'll see if it works like this.

    Looks like I figured it out. I needed to actually back up the database through mysql using mysqldump, then transfer the sql file to the new hard drive and restore it.
