    Hi Jamie

    I hope you are well. Please can you help. I developed a wordpress site using my 1and1 hosting account but I need to move it to host it with Vikatec. I exported the database from 1and1 into an SQL file and then ran the file in the Vikatec control panel. But there are problem with it and I cant login to the admin site either.

    The site can be seen here:

    http://www.somervillehouse.net/somerville_wordpress/

    This is the error message I get when trying to login to the admin site:

    Internal Server Error, this is an error with your script, check your error log for more information.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards
    Rae

    Hi Rae,

    Did you install WordPress at Vikatec?

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

    Ah now I did but then when I tried to run the SQL to add my database I got errors saying the tables already existed so I then proceeded to delete all the tables. I then ran my SQL and this is what I’m left with…..

    Hi Rachel,

    Are you still have problems with this? If so there are some tools and tips to make this kind of migration easier. Here are a couple of options

    1) backupbuddy – this helps with migration
    2) The non technical way to migrate wordpress websites – if you want to know how to do this let me know :)

    Hi Rae,

    Here is the non technical way :)

    1) Export your content from your dev site – tools /export
    2) If you are using Canvas you can also export your design options
    3) Install wordpress at your new hosting
    4) Re-import your content at your new website (tools / import)
    5) Re-import your theme and design
    6) Install any plugins
    7) Reset your menus

    Bingo :)

    Let me know if that works for you,

    Jamie

    Hi Jamie

    Thanks very much for that. I followed your instructions but not all of my site has imported; the pages and posts are the first things I’ve noticed are missing. Any ideas where I have gone wrong?

    Many thanks
    Rae

    Hi Rae,

    Did you run the import content into your new website?

    Hi Jamie

    I thought I did. It looks like all it has imported is the media files. Help!!

    Please

    Hi Rae,

    It’s a bit hard to diagnose without spending a bit of time looking at things. Have a think about whether you want to book a bit of dev time from us so we can help more directly :)

    I am planning to do a tutorial on migrating wordpress sites but it may take a few weeks before it’s live.
