Just importing the database content to the new database will not work. You need to point the sub directory where new wordpress installed on the new database. It need manual editing of the database contents. I can do it for you. Please accept my additional service offer.

Hi, If you need any subscription related queries please contact on***@******.*** If you changed the urls in the new database correctly, the problem may the table prefix. Please open the wpconfig file and make sure table prefix is same. Usually wordpress uses wp_ If your old wordpress installation uses a different prefix you need to set it on the new wp-config file. Please check and let me know the result. RegardsJins
