I'm seeking someone that can walk me through getting my website back up.
I've had to rebuild the server as the older one died.
I've built this one with Debian 8.2
The old one was running SLESv11
The WordPress on the Debian server is the latest version, whereas the the version on the older server was running a version behind this new version.
I have access to the old drive as this is still in good condition.
Currently, it is attached to an external dock with a USB connection to the new server.
What I need to know is can I overwrite the new version of WP with the older version, make some changes in the some of the configuration files and bring up the old website.
MySQL would probably require some changes in its config files.
I would like to know what are the other files that may require some changes.
Also from what I've been told I'll have to dump the new database and import the old database. I'm not sure how this is done other than using phpmyadmin and doing an export and import, but what parameters do I need to add to this?

Also I need to know where is the mysql database stored because I cannot find it on the old drive.
