The error basically just says "no data received from server".

Have you already moved the site, and are you still using the same domain?
If you have, this may be because you still have the old dns data cached, so emptying your browsers temporary files and cache,
and flushing your dns cache or rebooting your computer may help.

The old domain is completely gone and the files are on my new host. I am going to reset my stuff rn and see if it works...

Well, that's a notably "chrome" error - what if you try another browser, what happens?

Is this a very new domain? It could be the domain name is just not yet fully propagated, and you are running in to a dns server that doesn't know of it yet.

It is not very new, you can get to the site but the theme won't load. Additionally, I can ping it on cmd too.

You think I should set up a brand new SMF and just upload my theme, and have it fixed with repair_settings.php?

OK - maybe login to the forum, and try to find your way to the theme settings in the admin control panel. You can fix that from there too.

If everything works, you don't need repair_settings anymore.

I am trying to change the theme files from repair_settings.php because I can't do it on the Configuration (I only see text when I do it). So I have to change it from repair_Settings.php. I tried running it on my localhost and it works, but not for my GoDaddy host...
