How to change hosts or servers?


Recommended Posts

When changing hosts or servers what needs to be migrated to the new server and how and what steps need to be followed for it to work properly?


Doing a quick test run and its not working... Steps followed:

-Using cpanel on old server did a full backup using the backup wizard which was ftp'd to new server

-Extracted the backup public_html into the new server same exact location

-Backed up the original DB using cpanel database backup wizard.

-Restored DB backup into new server DB and added same user/password combo

-Edited conf_global.php to reflect new http location which is just an ip address for now since testing

-Both old and new have the same permissions for public_html
