REPOST of project that was completed incorrectly yesterday. I cannot stress this enough… you MUST BE QUALIFIED and understand the nuances of this job. I will NOT release payment until job is complete and correct. I already paid someone yesterday who did the project incorrectly and cost me several hours of my own time to fix, as well as funds for a job they did wrong.
** please read and when posting a bid, do more than say “hi, I’m qualified.” Let me know you understand and have experience and know-how. **
Moving website from GoDaddy to Hostgator. 1) You CANNOT use the automated .zip program provided by GoDaddy. The website is Wordpress, however has many sub folders and .html pages in the domain directory. ALL FILES must be properly moved, and when you use GoDaddy’s automated program you cannot properly do this.
2) You cannot use the latest version of Wordpress on the Hostgator hosting account. Doing so will cause the website to have a fatal error at the wp login, and will also lose ALL THE CHANGES the website has undergone over the past 18 months. The current website is on an old version of Wordpress. THEREFORE, you cannot use the Hostgator Fantastico Deluxe Wordpress install.
3) You must manually install an older version of Wordpress (3.1.1 or similar) in order for the website to maintain all of its coding. There is NO CHILD THEME, therefore, an update causes all changes to be lost. It is using a highly customized version of Twenty Ten, with many, many customizations. If this project is done incorrectly, the website reverts back to coding that is old and this causes many problems.
I will expect the winning freelancer to 1) preview the current website; 2) explain in their bid how they will avoid having difficulties I’ve experienced yesterday; 3) restate in their bid they understand the problems I’ve had, and how they will avoid making the same mistakes.
I am easy to work with – and I do not mind communicating with the winning bidder and providing any help I can. I am extremely focused on getting this job completed correctly, as soon as possible. I am frustrated that this job has proved too difficult for others. Please help!
Project needs to be completed ASAP. The deadline to cancel our GoDaddy hosting account is in just a couple of [url removed, login to view] will very likely have to remove what has been set up on the new Hostgator server and start again.
Thank you in advance.
