WordPress not recognizing imported database
I recently experienced the WordPress White Screen of Death and after no success with any of the general workarounds found on the internet, I decided to reinstall in another area of my website and restore from my latest site backup.
I first uploaded my large database via phpMyAdmin but had to split the files because they were too large for phpMyAdmin to handle; all the posts, tags, categories, etc. imported successfully into the database but did not show up in WordPress admin anywhere. All I had in WordPress was the default “Hello, world!” entry. Checked my wp-config.php file and all of the various bits and pieces pointed to the correct database using the correct username and password combos.
I dropped my tables, started from scratch, and reinstalled using Big Dump so that I could upload my SQL database intact without splitting it. Basically ended up with the same results where despite the fact that all my usernames and passwords match and that various files are pointing to the correct database, nothing is showing up on the WordPress admin end.
I am at a loss and have no idea where to go from here.
WordPress version 3.2.1
Database version 18226
My current URL that I am working in with no success: http://killsmedead.com/x/
(The theme is from my previous installation, so the “Not Found” errors are legitimate and not worrisome as the content there depends on category IDs that aren’t yet set-up in this WP installation.)
