    I moved all the files out of there

    When you did that, did you follow the relevant instructions in Moving_WordPress?

    Yes. I’m pretty sure. I selected every singe file and did a move into the root directory. Unless there is something that I’m not understanding about this process?

    So you followed all 14+ steps in Moving_WordPress? Only just moving files & folders is nowhere near enough.

    Yes. I followed all of those steps. I’ve done this multiple times on many different sites and have never had this problem. This is the first time I have ever seen this.

    Besides “restarting your server”. I have no idea how to do that. It’s not my server. It’s on GoDaddy.

    Where on Moving_WordPress does it mention “restarting your server”?

    Step 14. Sometimes you would need to restart your server, otherwise your server may give out an error. (happens in MAMP software (Mac)).

    That’s only if you are hosting locally – which you are not. So you carried out all of the other 13 steps?

    yes.

    To be honest, I’m not sure which step(s) you have missed or perhaps misunderstood but it does seem that at least 1 step wasn’t carried out correctly.

    Okay. So after I just confirmed to you like 4 times that I have followed each step, you telling me that I missed a step? lol

    I have done this before. It’s not like I’m brand new to doing this.

    Did you ever find the answer to this? I think the key to this is GoDaddy because I have done this 100s of time as well and never hit this issue until this GoDaddy server.

    So I found out it was somehow the public wifi I was on causing the issue … I didn’t know it was possible to cache things in that way? But using another computer/network worked fine. I can’t explain it. And yes I’d never seen that before.
