I asked this question on stackoverflow earlier, not realizing this site existed. Seems that this would be a better place for it.
In a nutshell, I've restored an existing drupal 7 site under the
public_html/migrated_site folder on my hosted site.
When I browse that URL however I'm getting errors from jquery that the Drupal object doesn't exist, and all my links and images point to
someothersite is the name of the old subdierctory under
public_html on the prior host.
I changed my
settings.conf values to point to the migrated MySQL database, and that bit appears to have worked, in that the site is coming up, albeit unstyled and with the above jQuery and links errors.
However I'm not sure what could be going on above? I've tried a few
RewriteBase settings in .htaccess in both
public_html/migrated_site (particularly, adding
RewriteBase /~hisusersite/migrated_site) but nothing seems to have made a difference.
