I’m attempting to move my rather large wordpress blog to Dreamhost. My database has been backed up as an sql file. I used WP-DBManage to restore it to my Dreamhost account.
In wp-conf.php, I pointed everything where it needed to go, but all that shows up is the “Hello World” default post.
The strange part is that the only database in phpMyadmin is the fully restored database.
Even stranger, in MySQL Databases under Toolbox, the database is listed, but claims to be empty. (0 KB)
Clearly wordpress is connecting to some database (otherwise, I’d get an error that it couldn’t connect), but not the database that I restored from a backup.
Can anyone help me with this? I’m very very lost.
