my registered URL is casualtyclaimscontainment.com I developed the site on AMPPS using the URL kriswebpg.test

I uploaded site to https://dallas124.mysitehosted.com I have tried everything in my knowledge to launch wordpress after successfully installing WordPress from cPanel with SOFTACULOUS installer. I get the following error:

This site can’t be reached casualtyclaimscontainment.com refused to connect. ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

or with incognito page get the error msg: 404 Not Found www.casualtyclaimscontainment.com/wp-admin (port 443)

I have explored all the internet solutions still no joy. under directory public_html the .htaccess file is shown below.

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress
  • There are many inconsistencies here... ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED is most likely a DNS error, not related to WordPress. If I try to access casualtyclaimscontainment.com I get a redirect loop? You mention a 404 response? I'm also getting an "intermittent"(?) SSL cert warning when accessing your domain via port 443? You say you uploaded the site to https://dallas124.mysitehosted.com - so how does your registered domain relate to this? Can you serve a simple HTML page from your domain? – MrWhite Sep 30 '19 at 11:55
  • I disabled all SSL to try and simply bring up page. no joy I checked DNS: A, CNAME, MX,Records reflect casualtyclaimscontainment.com. I cannot try a page as I cannot get Wordpress to launch. I would have simply retyped the page if I could get access – Ceeker Sep 30 '19 at 12:36
  • Can you share your folder structure? – middlelady Sep 30 '19 at 15:36
  • It sounds like you're saying you set up WordPress as a local site, then uploaded the files (and probably the database) to your actual host. If that's correct, you skipped a step - updating all the URLs. You'll need to use a database migration plugin that will handle the URL changes from your local URL to the actual end domain - there are a couple of settings in the options table but also URLs throughout the database that are often serialized and get corrupted if you try to just search and replace manually. – WebElaine Sep 30 '19 at 15:38
