Works great on one server, but not on another

Hi everyone - I thought I was being genius and set up my website as a "test" on my personal server before actually implementing it for a client. Result - website works exactly as I want it to on http://www.ericaleedesigns.com/wordpresstest/ Then, I try to export from there, and import to my actual site: http://www.sale-pelletier.com The WordPress import feature hangs (all I get is a blank page). Tech support upped my php limit to 32MB - didn't help. I get impatient and basically give up on importing, resorting to good ole copy and paste. That's fine. What's not fine are the other issues I am still having: - widgets do not appear - footer does not appear - wordpress' administration toolbar that usually appears at the top of your screen when viewing your site.. not there (I see a strip of ecopro green there where it should be) - menus (specifically sub-menus) not appearing as they're set up to appear (not in the order I've asked them to appear in) - carosel page not functioning properly (two rows of images appear, instead of one - arrows not working) Any ideas??? I've gone through settings to try to make them identical on both. I've tried reinstalling wordpress. Both sites are hosted with Doteasy, both are the same "level" of service - though I have discovered they are not both running identical versions of php. ericaleedesigns has PHP Version 5.1.6 sale-pelletier has PHP Version 5.0.4

When you say you tried to export and import, was that only for the wordpress settings, or did you also do the ecopro settings? EcoPro > Theme Options > (scroll to bottom) Backup Option Information

Hi Tim - I did not attempt to import/export any settings. At this point I only want to export, then import posts.. but even if I cannot, it's not a big deal. I'm more concerned with why the theme isn't functioning properly. To illustrate a bit more what I mean, if you visit http://sale-pelletier.com/category/journal/ - widgets, footer, etc, all function as expected. I am not sure why the links are appearing in the subheader (bio, contact, gallery, home), though, as they are not child pages of this page. But if you go to http://sale-pelletier.com/bio/ - no widgets, no footer. (Child pages are correctly there, but not in the order I told them to be in.)

They upped your PHP, but are they running the minimum requirement of PHP? e.g. PHP 5+

Hi Adam - You'll notice in my first post that I was running 5.0.4 Right now I'm in a bit of a holding pattern - tech support tried doing something stupid and messed up my databases. They're now migrating me to a new server with the latest versions of everything. Thanks everyone for your feedback so far - I'll be back with an update once I actually get wordpress back up and running again.

After they upgraded me to the latest servers, version of php, etc, things worked great. No idea what the issue was with php 5.0.4 but happy I'm good to go now. Not just to figure out why the font (museo) isn't showing up (but that's a different topic). Thanks everyone.
