Hi There,
I am trying to do a very basic wordpress transfer of a site.
I have transferred all the relevant files to the new folder.  I did a find and replace with the exported db to ensure all links are correct.  I imported the db successfully.  I changed the wp-config.php to match my new database and yet when I try to see the site I get this error
http://www.xfactorideas.com.au/newbcplastics/


Warning: require(/home/content/09/12786409/html/newbcplastics/wp-includes/pomo/mo.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/09/12786409/html/newbcplastics/wp-settings.php on line 76

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/content/09/12786409/html/newbcplastics/wp-includes/pomo/mo.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5_3/lib/php') in /home/content/09/12786409/html/newbcplastics/wp-settings.php on line 76

I retransferred all the files just in case but I am still getting this error and I don't know how to fix it
?
Please help?

Not sure that's the problem here.  Are you moving ALL of WordPress or just the wp-content folder?

I tried replacing the wp-includes/pomo folder with a newer version, but that didn't work.
I even tried commenting out line 76 which refers to pomo but the same error persisted...weird.

This file is either missing, or does not have the correct permissions:
/home/content/09/12786409/html/newbcplastics/wp-includes/pomo/mo.php

Make sure the permissions on the entire wp-includes folder and subfolders are set to 755

Don't do that.  

When moving WordPress, all you need to move file-wise is the wp-content folder.  That holds your theme, plugins, and uploads which is all you should be customizing.  When you install WordPress, it does set some environment variables based on what the installation server reports them to be and moving everything, aside from being a complete PITA, can result in messages like yours when something isn't where WordPress thinks it will be.

The better way to move is to reinstall WordPress on the target server, kill the initial MySQL tables created on install and THEN move wp-content and the database to the target locations.  The only other files you need to move would be .htaccess and wp-config.php if you messed around with those locally.

If a new install functions fine and then dies after you import the rest of the info, then something else is off in the import data, potentially a file path (as opposed to a URL).

hmm I changed all permissions to 755 - no change.

I would normally move the wp-contents file, but the instructions were very clear on this job - a clean install was not to occur with us replacing the wp-contents only and importing the db after dropping the tables, so this is what I have to deal with.
