Okay; that’s what I needed to know. Thank you!
Awesome; thank you!
In case anyone else is having a similar issue…I also like the Search and Replace plugin for finding any “hidden” references to the old domain in my database.
This worked beautifully. Thank you!
I think I understand now. Thank you for clarifying!
Will it be obvious, when I view the tables in PHPMyAdmin, which ones are connected to eStore?
I don’t understand this response. It sounds like you are telling me to do what I already did. And I don’t understand how “option 2” is different from the first way of doing it. What I have done so far is:
1. Exported ALL of the tables from the database that holds the original WP installation, using PHPMyAdmin. (Not just the original WP tables, and not through the WP dashboard.)
2. Moved (copied) all of the files from the old cpanel file manager to the new one.
3. Created a new database and user on the new server.
4. Updated wp-config to have the new database values.
5. Used PHPMyAdmin to go in and change the root URL’s in the WP options. (So URL’s should now reflect the new server.)
6. Visited the new site. Here’s where it gets wonky. Up to this point, all of the database tables are present on the new server. But then…
7. Clicked on a post link. NOW I get a database connection error, and if I go back to PHPMyAdmin, all of the tables are gone. THEY WERE THERE until I clicked on a link in the site.
So you can please clarify what OTHER way I should be migrating the database tables to the new server? And what you mean by “not transferring them,” if I’m having trouble, but exporting and importing them?
Ah. I don’t have one entered. If I’m using Paypal checkout, what should this be?
