    Can you describe the problems in detail. Are you seeing any errors?

First i have created a directory healthable and moved my backup there and extracted it but then i can't edit the wp-config as it will prompt me to create a new file with that name.

My database has been imported yet i can get it to work with the database user i created early.

I followed this tutorials

  • The article from bivori.com is exactly the one you need.

    but then i can't edit the wp-config as it will prompt me to create a new file with that name.

    Is something preventing you from editing wp-config.php file?

    It won't prompt for a new file, if you don't edit this file you will see a Error establishing database connection. If it is edited properly and database permissions are correct it will work.

  • I am now using VestaCP but the problem now is that my site homepage www.healthable.org is BLANK
