What to do? Domain hasbeen moved to a different server.

  1. Hi guys, I was hosting my wordpress blog at streamline.net and today they told me they have moved my website to a different server due to resource issues.

    It seems that this move has ruined my blog.. I'm new to all this really so I don't know what to do in order to make it work again without losing all my posts and stuff.

    Here's what they wrote:

    If your domain is using our DNS name servers, i.e. ns1/ns2.streamlinedns.co.uk, you need take no action.

    If your domain is using external DNS name servers, you will have to update the A record/s for your domain manually. The IP Address of the new server you domain is hosted on will have been emailed to when the domain was moved.

    If your domain is using hard coded scripts that refer to server paths, the action you take will depend on the script you are using.

    If using ASP, the physical path to the file in question should be obtained using the FSO command "Server.MapPath()" .

    If using PHP they should use the variable "Document_Root" (Linux) or "Path_Translated" (Windows).

    Can anyone tell me what I would have to do? My MySQL database is still intact so I guess I just need to figure out what must be done.. thanks in advance!

  2. I use their DNS so I'm ok with that.. its this part that I assume applies:

    If your domain is using hard coded scripts that refer to server paths, the action you take will depend on the script you are using.

    If using ASP, the physical path to the file in question should be obtained using the FSO command "Server.MapPath()" .
