  • moving to new host

    Hi,

    Could someone please help me with the process of moving my forum to a new host. I have found the new host I am going to use this time (linode.com) and I have downloaded all of my files from my current host (ipage.com). I am unsure what the next steps in this process are. Any help will be greatly appreciated

    The best way to go about it in my opinion would be to follow these steps:

    1) Place your forum off line
    2) Make a thorough backup of your database and forum files.
    3) Create a database at the new server
    4) Import there the backup of your database
    5) Upload the forum files to the new server space preserving the structure intact. i.e. uploading it in the same folder/place like you had them in the old server space.
    6) Open config.php file with a php editor program and edit the db infos in there to match those of the new database you created previously at the new host''s CP.

    Open your forum and you should be all set. Some hosts do the move for free of charge. So you might want to ask your new host if they can do the move for you.
