Restore from linode backup and my wordpress site longer works

So I was experimenting with my Linode VPS today and things kinda went wrong but luckily I had a snapshot backup created before I experimented using the linode backup utility. I decided to restore from my snapshot so I deployed a new Linode and restored the backup to the new Linode but I can now no longer access my wordpress site through the domain. I have changed the ip address in the domain manager to point to the new Linode but this does not work. Also I have shut down the older lInode - is there anything else I am missing? Any help would be much appreciated.

What's the domain, new ip, and old ip? How long ago did you point the domain to the new ip?

Don't really want to provide my ip address and domain on a forum… i pointed the domin to the new ip address since yesterday and it does not work - also the problem for other domains on the site… any idea what the problem may be?

If you don't provide your public information (domain/IP) you won't get help. :D
