    There are a few things that are causing the issue.

    1. You mentioned that you moved everything into a folder “web” but your subdomain is “upgrade”. Files should all be in root folder “upgrade”
    2. Did you change all of the urls in the database?
    3. Did you duplicate the old database and rename it or just create a new empty database?
    4. The redirect is probably due to the .htaccess file

    Your best bet for moving wordpress is to use a backup/restore plugin.
    BackupWP
    or my favorite Akeeba backup and kickstart
    These plugins will compress the entire site and database into a file that you can then move anywhere. Akeeba Backup with kickstart will even fix all the urls in the database upon restore.

    If you would like to do it manually you can do that as well. Check here for instructions https://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    You will also need a database search/replace utility like this one to change any urls in the DB
