Hi All

We have just switched hosts as our old ones were total rubbish (dot5hosting)

 

We have baked up our database and files

could somebody explain the steps to get it up and running on our new hosting.

 

i have uploaded all the files to our new server but its configuring phpmyadmin exactly the same way as it was is confusing me.

 

does anyone have a guide on how to do this?

 

regards

 

Dave

now, first,

 

if the host you are leaving and the one you are moving into are both cpanel hosts, you dont need all that hassle. just go to cpanel's backup section, take a full backup of your account, and then restore at the new host.

 

 

"but its configuring phpmyadmin exactly the same way"

 

this sentence is a bit complex. what is creating problems ?

 

you just need to create the database for the store, and then restore your existing exported sql through phpmyadmin.

but do i need to call the new database exactly the same name?

 

and do i need to reepoint something in my files telling them the location of the new database?

just go to cpanel's backup section

you need also update the config.php files if the path to your root folder is different as some hosts use:

/home/user-domain-name

and some

/a/b/c/what/ever/user/home/user-domain-name

Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

Any issues with oscommerce, I am here to help you.

no you dont have to call it exactly same but you have to record whatever you called it in your configure.php in includes and admin/includes folders.

 

 

a cpanel host is a web host that offers cPanel control panel to customers.
