I have have a WP installation in a subfolder of my domain. I recently moved my domain from my old host to a new host, as an afterthought, realised I needed to move the WP installation. But didn’t export a WP backup and now I only have FTP access to the old host! Anyway, I thought that if the domain and path are the same I could just copy the whole installation across to the new host, but that’s not working: “Error establishing a database connection”. I guess I need to modify the mySQL or wp-config.php? Is this even possible now? Or is there a way I can generate a WP backup with only FTP access to the original installation?
all help much appreciated
