I have a pretty basic understanding here... so go easy.

I watched, followed and executed a tutorial of how to move a site from one domain to another. Once done, entered the site name into my browser and was faced with the following error:

Warning: require_once(/home/public_html/system/startup.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/sites/d/ on line 23

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/public_html/system/startup.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /var/sites/d/ on line 23

I edited both the config files to point them in the correct place as explained in the tutorial. What I am baffled with is the error is saying no file/directory in this location (/var/sites/d/ which I agree with, I do not have any of these folder(s) in my file manager.... nor was there in the site where it came from. I presumed this would be in the startup.php file)... but after hours of looking I cannot find where this is written and presumable needs changing to (/home/public_html/index.php)

any help would be greatly appreciated

Ensure your config.php and admin/config.php files are properly configured with their relative paths. When moving from one site to another, use your backup ZIP file of your previous store location and upload it to your new server by using your host file manager console. Then, extract the ZIP file. This can be done pretty fast.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.
