I’m trying to move Word Press files from one domain name to another on Dreamhost.
I followed the instructions on backing up the MySQL database http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Migrate_MySQL
and got the files copied over to a new database under the new domain (my understanding was that this is how you copy the WP files to the new domain).
I can see the files when I’m in the MySQL thing.
I don’t see any of the new files when I go into the web ftp of the new domain and just look in the folders/directory. I’m guessing that whatever is supposed to link the new domain and the database is missing and I think those are “configuration files” but I don’t know if that’s the problem or how to fix it.
Clearly I’m not a programmer so I hope I’m explaining this well enough that maybe someone could point me in the right direction?
I know I"m not being terribly specific but I don’t know what details might be helpful.
Thanks in advance for Any and All help!
