Hi, hoping someone can help, would really appreciate some help.
I created a mirror site whilst waiting for my domain name to transfer. I set up my WP site and everything was working perfectly. My transfer then became active and I could view the home page of my website through my normal domain name, the rest of the pages all continued to divert to the mysite.dreamhosters.com url, so I emailed support and asked them how I made my usual domain name the primary one.
They advised my I could go ahead and delete the mirrored site, because all my database was safely under my usual domain name.
So I did this, My site disappeared entirely (Error establishing a database connection). I emailed support and they advised my to login to my database and change all mirrored domain references to my new domain.
Which I painstakingly did. My site is still down and has been for over a day which is extremely worrying. (I created the mirror to try and avoid downtime).
Can anyone give me any advice, I have been waiting over 22 hours for support to get back to me.
I’m even prepared to start over from scratch, but don’t know how to remove the old database without it compromising the new site.
Any advise would be really appreciated.
Thanks. (Newbie - Obviously!)
