Accessing old wordpress site using IP address after moving to new host

Hi Experts,

We recently migrated the hosting of our website form bluehost to hostgator, and a couple of things are needed from the old site, trouble is, it uses redux framework and need to access the old site to get settings.  When I download the site and db, and setup, the settings are missing.

How can I access the site sitting on our old server? Using IP address, what do I need to do, so I can get access to wordpress admin from old host?

Can you not access it using the IP? I'm just making sure I understand the question...

So for example <ip-address>/wp-admin does that work?

Yes, I was afraid (changing the database) of that, and it meant I understood the problem ... Anyway, glad you got it solved.
