Preparing new server migration

There is nothing Invision-Community-specific about such a move. You just:

  1. put the site in offline mode
  2. export the files and upload to new server
  3. export the MySQL database and import it on the new server
  4. test the website with its server IP/domain
  5. when everything works again, put installation online and initiate the domain transfer


Optional, but recommended:

  • Perform a trial transfer with step 2 to 4 just to make sure everything CAN work on the new server and that the export and import are processed correctly. Watch out for problems with character sets (database) or file permission errors (file system). 
  • Change the DNS settings on the current domain and set a short TTL time. This will speed up the domain transfer.
