Last night I migrated my 13 year old wordpress site from an old Legacy Linux wordress hosting c-panel to managed hosting. I thought that it was supposed to be a seamless migration. When I woke up this morning my whole website was completely gone. And I am being prompted to build a website from scratch? I'm completely confused. How do I get my website back?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can you provide some additional details as how you "migrated" the site.
GoDaddy does have an option when you go to setup a Managed WordPress site to enter login information for another WordPress site and their system will clone the site, but this doesn't update DNS settings nor does it remove previous hosting accounts. It is just a copy script.
Now I will tell you that I've seen this script timeout / fail from time to time depending on the size of the site being copied.
So if you could provide some additional details (including your domain name) that would be helpful in providing you guidance.
