Can you help? FTP upload of a Wordpress site + MySQL
Does anyone know what the steps required to transfer a domain from one hosting provider to another are?
I have a Wordpress site
I have downloaded all the content files, the wp-admin files and the rest via FTP to my computer.
I also made a copy of the MySQL data base for that particular file.
I need to know where the best place to install these two things are..
I have tried uploading the content into the public_html folder of the website in question, but I did have some failed transfers, 119 out of 7024. The reason given was 'incorrect password'.
Where do I need to add the MySQL data base for that particular site? which is only 1.8MB?
I am not sure what else to do, my hosting plan has been cancelled with the last hosting provider, and now my site is not showing at all..It wasn't a very clever thing to do I know..is there a quick way out of this mess?
I only changed the DNS to affilorama this morning, but I have been able to login via FTP so I am assuming all is working this end..
Any help would be really appreciated..
