    Thank you both for the quick replies. I think there is something wrong with where our domain is being directed. Bear with me here:

    Our new database on the new server was registered under our primary domain (abc.com) but currently abc.com is pointing to our old site on the old server. We decided to point our extra domain (xyz.com) at the new server in order to start building the new WP site in preparation for propagation before the end of the month.

    So I followed the instructions using Keith’s method, but cannot get passed the stage where I am supposed to open the install.php file. I get a 404 error. I created a new subdirectory in the public_html folder and dropped the backup .zip file and install.php in there and when I attempt to access install.php through the browser, I get the error.

    I am new to all this so I am in a bit of a bind. I have to get the new site up and running before the old site’s servers are EOLed. Any advice?
