    try going into your directory on your c/panel and download the config file. When you moved the site this file would have been created in the new location. Double click on config.php

    so you put it in the wrong directory? when you say you moved it did you use something like duplicator? If you have a saved version of your site just delete the install and do it again to the right directory.
