I am migrating a wordpress website from one hosting company (Host1) to another (Host2). From Host1, I made a copy of the root directory and dumped the db in a .sql.
I then installed a fresh copy of wordpress on Host2, then used FTP to 'overwrite' the root directory of the clean install with the root directory from Host1. I then imported the database on host2 and edited the wp-config with the new db info. (dbname/user/pass/dbhost)
The hosting company said this should have worked, but I'm getting an error on the webpage that says:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Did I miss a step?
