    Default Moving WP to a new shared hosting package problem 29 Sep 2011 @ 23.30

    Hello,

    To save a few pennies I moved my website to my sister's hosting package as an addon domain, spliting the cost.

    I backed up everything and have succesfully uploaded everything except WordPress.

    I created a new data base (with new name) and uploaded the backed up files. I also uploaded the ftp website files. I updated the wp-config file with new data base password etc. but now I get error message:

    quote
    Warning: require(/home/consci/public_html/mysite/myblog/wp-includes/load.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/consci/public_html/mysite/myblog/wp-settings.php on line 19

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/consci/public_html/capoeiracanal.co.uk/capoeira-events-topics/wp-includes/load.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/consci/public_html/mysite/myblog/wp-settings.php on line 19
    mysite: capoeira canal dot co dot uk


    Thanks a billion

    Is my question clear, have I provided sufficient information for someone to help?

    Should I just be patient?

    The problem is spelled out in the error message. This file is required but missing:

    /home/consci/public_html/mysite/myblog/wp-includes/load.php


    It's likely that a link has broken because of some difference in the directory structure. You need to find the file load.php and update wp-settings.php with its correct location.

    Duh, I did read the message, obviously not well enough. Not all of the files/folders uploaded to the server, not sure why not?

    Fixed now.

    Thanks

    Nowadays I only use FTP for huge files (video). Sometimes these don't complete properly and part of the video is missing. To avoid this I check the file sizes when the upload is complete.

    For all my other website assets, I use version control (Mercurial, in my case). This has built-in integrity checking, so I know that an upload has completed successfully. I also don't need to worry about remembering which files need uploading -- the version control system remembers for me.
