transferring server


Recommended Posts

We're moving to a new server and I want to make sure all of my i's are dotted. Aside from backing up the FTP and database, are there any additional steps I'll have to take to ensure the software functions on the new site?


Assume the server specs are identical.

This has been discussed here before many times....


Backup your site. Do a MySQL Dump (the backup feature in ADMIN works fine)


CHANGE BOTH of your CONFIGURE.PHP files to match your new site. In your MySQL tool (phpMySQL perfered) load this dumped database or put in to the "run query"



Once the new site is running the backup and restore will work BETWEEN sites.... (backup OLD site - copy file over - restore in NEW site)


Good luck
