Blank Page after site move

Permalink
I'm recording this as it may help someone in the future.

I moved an old 5.6.1.2 site to a new server. It served up a blank page. After much pain, I discovered the simple description.txt file -- the name did not match the name of the theme folder. When I made the first line of description.txt the same as the folder name, presto site rendered.

Hope this helps someone!

First - I'd go through our legacy documentation on how to move a websitehttps://legacy-documentation.concrete5.org/developers/installation/m...

Second - a great forum post that will help you troubleshoot.

Thank you @jessicadunbar.

Please note the issue was resolved by my beginning the description.txt file in the theme folder the same as the theme name.

I only posted this as a note for anyone in the future to find who may experience the same issue.
