WP installed, migrated to new server, issues…

  • hello

    i’ve been working on a new site, which I have migrated to a new server )owned by my friend’s brother) which I am now installing a test on their server.
    It seems to have caught the database ok and install seems generally ok apart from I get a completely blank screen when I go to the domain – http://www.engagethanet.co.uk/eng is the test domain – the main domain is the current site we’re going to write over so ignore that.

    I am getting similar issues however to this post – I have tried calling the errors using a tester.php text file, which has bright up the errors as below:


    Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function ‘wp_cron’ not found or invalid function name in /home/wwwpief/public_html/engagethanet.co.uk/eng/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 405

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_next_scheduled() in /home/wwwpief/public_html/engagethanet.co.uk/eng/wp-includes/update.php on line 390

    what can I try? I don’t really know php at all to attempt edits. kinda need hand holding through that part!

    help!

    Try re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    wipe over the existing ones? bar the content? that’ll be ok with my site, right?
    (probably a stupid Q)

    wipe over the existing ones?

    Ideally, delete everything except the wp-content folder plus your wp-config.php & .htaccess file. Then re-upload fresh copies.

    that’ll be ok with my site, right?

    Your site’s content is stored in your database.

    hmmm… now this has happened…

    Check your folder permissions with your hosts.

    whats the ideal permissions?
    755?

    On a folder, yes. For a file, 644.

    they all seem to be set like that – 755 folders, 644 files.
    feel a bit lost… although LOVE the speed of support on WP.org forums! amazing.

    This is definitely a hosting issue rather than a WP one. Double-check that you uploaded the root WP index.php to the blog folder. If your hosts don’t allow directory listing, that might explain the 403.

    the main hosting domain is a WP build too (www.piefactorymusic.com) so I know it will work with WP.
    its so frustrating. however I used to use hosting from the same place and had no end of hassles…

    looks like i’ll have to try battle this one through somehow. 🙁

    thanks for your help though

    feel I should create a new thred for this, but am now getting this on my dev, site on portfolio pages:

    example – http://engage.monkeysbrother.co.uk/portfolio-items/sport-4-nrg/

    Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/.) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/monkeysb:/usr/lib/php:/usr/php4/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php4/lib/php:/tmp) in /home/monkeysb/public_html/engage/wp-content/themes/showycase/functions/vt_resize.php on line 67

    open_basedir restriction in effect

    Now that’s definitely a hosting issue. Your only options are to talk to your hosts or to use a different theme.

    I had a suspicion it might be hosting and pre-empted it. they’ve released it and it now works. hoorah!
    thanks again for your help

    didn’t manage to get it working on the other server though. 🙁
