With only experience buying wordpress websites and nothing to do with directories I've recently bought a web directory. However there have been a few issues.
When I move the files over from his hosting to mine I get an error message.
The seller then stated that he would move the site for me if I gave him my cpanel and password.
I gave him my FTP access instead but he said that he 'couldn't create mysql and install db'.
After that I asked for the access to the admin part of the directory as it's run off php link directory and he said that he couldn't login with his old password after the (unsuccessful) site move.
He said that it's encrypted with MD5 and that I can use this link to create an md5 password - Free online md5 hash calculator based on php script.
Does this guy sound legit and are these proper reasons as to why the website isn't working properly!?
