    I currently have a wordpress blog on http://domain1.com/blog

    I want to move this to http://domain2.com

    and http://domain2.com are hosted on two different hosts.

    This is what I did so far:

    1. Installed Wordpress (using fantastico) on http://domain2.com
    2. Downloaded wp-content folder of http://domain1.com/blog using FTP and uploaded it to http://domain2.com
    3. Exported sql database of http://domain1.com/blog (from phpmyadmin)
    4. Replaced all occurrences of http://domain1.com/blog to http://domain2.com (using notepad++)
    5. Imported this sql file to http://domain2.com (using phpmyadmin)

    The problem now is...

    I am unable to login to http://domain2.com/wp-admin/ using the username and password which was working fine when I installed.

    Another problem is when I point my browser to http://domain2.com it displays nothing but a blank page. A GET request is sent (as seen in Firebug) but all I see if a blank HTML response.

    Any idea what I did wrong? I am willing to do it over, only if someone can guide. Please?
