Hello I have to migrate a wordpress from a Linux Server to a Windows Server both are shared hosting.

It's possible? I have uploaded the database and configure the same user and password in it, and I uploaded all the files to the same localization.

But It' doesn't work.

In the Linux server If I enter with ftp I can see in the root the folders:
anon_ftp
cgi_bin
error_docs
httpsdocs
logs
private
subdomains
web_users

If I copy the same to the windows server I think It will be worng because there isn't any index.php or similar in the root folder.

Any idea ? thanks.

Hello Jason I have read the article,  but I have one questions:

I have understood that I need a fresh Wordpress installation in the new server. If this is correct, Why?

Thanks

It's easier to get WordPress up and running initially as a fresh installation than downloading the whole core from the current server and re-uploading it to the new server.  It's also unnecessary.

When you work on your WordPress site, all customizations happen in the wp-content subfolder and in the database.  There is simply no need to transfer the rest of the core around.  It's far easier to just re-deploy it and move the wp-content folder and migrate the database as I describe in the article.
