Hi George, first please try and check if the db restored ok, if not, you might need to restore it using phpmyadmin

Second, please check your wp-config.php , is it updated with the new site details?

Thirdly, please try and disable all plugins by renaming the plugins/ folder to a temporary name and see if you are able to login

Hope it helps!

hi

thanks for the tips..

database seems fine I have used phpmyadmin to login ok stats look fine
wp-admin is wrong it has the original db name db user .. the password is encoded but I always use the same one... I edited this to the new db and when I tried to log into wp it said I couldn't login... odd

Ovidu...

sincere apologies...completely my fault

lessons learnt

1. make sure your target site is completely empty except for tar backup and xcloner script

2. make sure you do not use a database previously used ... create a brand new one and user

3. ensure when you fill out the script ensure that the options you select are green lit... NOT TOGGLED OFF

thank you for your help Ovidu ... and your patience... truly a genius and a gentleman

keep up the good work

george
