error message upon webstie migration

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hi, I have migrated to a new server and upon installing the files, I can access the back end but at the front end I get an error message. I have already re-downloaded the template only and re-installed it but the problem is still there. I have also cleared cache. The error message is

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'load error: failed to find /home/tax8grek/public_html/tsialoupis_mult/templates/shaper_optima/less/error.less' in /home/catsialoupis/public_html/plugins/system/helix/core/classes/ Stack trace: #0 /home/catsialoupis/public_html/plugins/system/helix/core/classes/ helixv2_lessc->compileFile('/home/tax8grek/...') #1 /home/catsialoupis/public_html/plugins/system/helix/core/helix.php(981): helixv2_lessc->cachedCompile(Array) #2 /home/catsialoupis/public_html/plugins/system/helix/core/helix.php(1011): Helix::autoCompileLess('/home/catsialou...', '/home/catsialou...') #3 /home/catsialoupis/public_html/templates/shaper_optima/error.php(25): Helix::addLess('error', 'error') #4 /home/catsialoupis/public_html/libraries/joomla/document/error/error.php(142): require_once('/home/catsialou...') #5 /home/catsialoupis/public_html/libraries/joomla/document/error/error.php(113): JDocumentError->_loadTemplate('/home/catsialou...', 'error.php') #6 / in /home/catsialoupis/public_html/plugins/system/helix/core/classes/ on line 1598

Please advice. It appears that I need to update the path to the new path but I don't know where to go about and do it.

try this advice:

Go to template Optima settings --> Advanced tab --> LESS - set to NO , next SAVE settings.
Now set YES again and save.

Hi Paul, thanks for your advice. I was in a hurry to help out my clients and I actually found a solution in a forum and did the following. On some websites, I could not access the back end of joomla so I have Edited and updated the path for both of the files below located in:

The files are:

Now the website menus appear horizontal and some other layout options appear mixed up. Please help!

check out an example of the result at the following link

You will see that the menus appear horizontal and at the bottom of the home page the modules appear mixed up.

if you edited files already, hard to say what you've broken by the way.
Maybe upload original files from template and try my #1 advice.
and clean all cache files which are always only temporary.
