    Hey guys,

    I decided to move my site to an offsure hosting for security reasons but no matterhow many times i uploaded my database to the new host and changed the servers DNS, i always get a blank page.
    I made a backup of of my site and uploaded to the new host but its not working guys and i dont know what to do.
    I am trying to solve it for more then a monthnow and the owner of this small offsure company also tried to help me but with no success and this is what he said to me:

    "Hello sir, as per i said theres some problem with your database. you need to check the database so u can find the problem. Problem occurs only after updating or restoring database to other host. So please check by yourself. Currently we are busy in server migration and data processing so we wont be able to help you."


    Can someone tell me what to do to make it work cause i am lossign so much time and anergy on it.

    Is this a Wordpress site? If so, did you export a .xml backup of your content? This is the best method to move Wordpress content from one host to another.

    Your DB contains references to your old host and all those DB entries have to be changed to reference the new host.

    Yes its a wordpress site and i made a backup in my wordress admin to all the site's
    files and downloaded to my pc.
    Its not a xmldoc but a sql file and i just created a new mysql database in the new host account
    and uploaded the database tehre.

    make sure you create the new database suffix exactly how it was named on the old one. its a common issue when trying to restore a database
