Moved a Subdomain to a Different Primary Domain and am getting 404 Redirects

Hello, We moved one of our websites onto a different host and web server that doesn't support custom built websites (Only WordPress). We had a subdomain that was built from scratch, and i copied all it's files before the move, and its SQL database. Today I loaded up that SQL database and file folder into one of our domains that's still on the godaddy server, created a subdomain and pointed it to the newly uploaded file folder, added an A record in the DNS, and hoped it would all just work out. But i'm getting a 404 that redirects away from the subdomain. When i type in random URL's like "" it goes to a regular 404, but when i type in a real subdomain like "" it goes to a 404 redirect on the main domain. Any assistance you can offer on helping me figure out what i did wrong or failed to do would be amazing. I provided screenshot step by step of what i did in the image link below.
