Copying site from one server to another


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, and sorry if I am being really thick here.


But here goes... I have created my site on one server (on a temporary basis as at the time I didn't have my own set up) and all the files are there already... the shop is pretty much ready to go live.


But I now have the proper server set up and ready and all I need to do is transfer the details from one to the other. I have searched through all the forums I could see and the Wiki docs but to no avail.


My thanks in advance to anyone helping out this dumb limey!!

Sorry thought maybe I should elaborate a little more....


is the best way simply to copy everything back onto a local source (ie my Hardrive) and then just copy it straight onto the new server... or will I have issues with the databases etc?

If you are familiar with phpmyadmin :

export the db to file.

import into the new db.


Change your configure.php files to reflect all the new values.


Upload the files and you should be good to go.
