I am trying to migrate my website from one host to another, and I am not looking for a canned solution. Upon attempting to observe database information in the installation I discovered that the scripts were disabled on the installation that I am trying to migrate. So, I cannot figure out which database is associated with this installation to back it up before the migration. This is a live website, and I am attempting to not break it. How can I re-enable scripts on the installation? What plugins could be responsible for this? I have seen none that are responsible, but I can list those too if necessary. Is there a simple solution? Do I need to update the version, and if so how could I go about discovering the database information first to ensure that I am not going to break the site doing so?
If you check the
wp-config.php you can identify which database is being used:
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** // /** The name of the database for WordPress */ define('DB_NAME', 'this_here');
Then, use phpMyAdmin or Adminer to export the data into an .sql and move it over to the new database for import.
