We’re back. The last post before the move turned out to be a bit too optimistic. But after a lot of major minor problems during our ISP and server switch, we’re finally up and running on our new servers.
We’ve learned that if you’re backing up a WordPress blog by backing up your home folder only, you’re missing out. Apparently, all your posts and content is in your SQL database. SQL database??? Yup. And when you switch servers you have to hack your wp_config.php file to get things to work again. wp_config.php??? Yup. A lot of trial and error on our part, after being nonchalantly arrogant about the backup and moving process.
Hopefully, we’re better doctors than web masters… More to come.
