    Default issue with transfer to godaddy

    I have tranfered my site between servers multiple times without issue and I bought a godaddy host a few days ago and cannot get the site to transfer. I fallowed the offical instructions but nothing has worked after I install the site I go to transfer my files over to the ftp and it uploads but when I go to look at the site nothing had changed it just shows the green test site


    I have deleted it and retried many times but to no avail please help

    Check the DB settings in the two configure.php files. They are probably pointing to a default database rather than the one you've migrated. Hhhm, you did copy the database as well as the files, didn't you?

    What do your configure.php files have in them? Post, but obscure the information associated with the DB password and username and, if included, obscure your admin path.

    I suspect your DB_PREFIX is different between the old and new sites, and thus it's pointing to different sets of data in the database.
    The DB_PREFIX is mentioned in the instructions for doing the move, but many ignore it and end up with the symptoms you describe.
