Hey Greg
After you transfer files and db, you need to set new SITE_URL and Db connection info in file ow_includes/config.php file. Also set 777 recursive permissions to this folder:
- ow_userfiles
- ow_pluginfiles
Let me know if you will have problems with that :)

Hello addenster

Yes i change the folder permission

But i see in this folder ow_smarty\template_c

Many files with my old url, just change all with my new url

I test this night

Thx for help

1) Check that you have old value in ow_includes/config.php for OW_PASSWORD_SALT constant. This is the most reason why you can't login as admin.
2) Login to your server as root and remove all smarty's cache files. Or ask your hosting to do it for you.
3) Check that you have new value for SITE_URL in ow_includes/config.php file.

Let me know if it still doesn't work.
