I uploaded my wordpress files from a different site, moving to your server. I also uploaded my sql database successfully. I have not moved the domain name yet, first trying to get site right at new host. When I go to the temp url at inmotionhosting, I get to the site, but to a 404 error page. I cant seem to get to the home page - all links bring me to the old (current) server. Take a look here and see what I mean...http://ecbiz151.inmotionhosting.com/~jmbord5/ I think it indicates that the wordpress install is connecting to the sql database, or i would not see any of that content or header and navigation, but I dont know why i cant see the whole site correctly. PLEASE HELP!!! thanks a million.

Hello juliemb,

Thank you for your question. Since Wordpress is "domain specific" you will have to use a host file modification, or change the URL in Wordpress to the Temp URL, in order to test before pointing your domain over.

I performed a host file modification as a test, and your website worked successfully on our server.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

-John-Paul
