Wordpress migration

I just moved to Dreamhost from Bluehost and I’ve been trying to move my Wordpress over all day. I have copied all the files over using an FTP client, and I have migrated my mySQL data. I edited wp-config.php with what I believe is the correct information for my MySQL information.

However, when I go to my site (handheldgamingblog.com), I am met with a blank page. Something strange is that whenever you go to a specific file like handheldgamingblog.com/index.php for example, it downloads the file automatically. And then, if you go to a file that doesn’t exist, it will make a file that has this in it:


  • Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn’t do anything, but loads
  • wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
  • @package WordPress


  • Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
  • @var bool
    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, true);

/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */

I have no idea why it is doing that. You can put anything after handheldgamingblog.com/ and it will download that file.

What is wrong?
