I will be changing my hosting provider in the next couple of days and have some questions about the process and what I need to do. I will have to move everything over to a new server, right? I have downloaded the .sql wordpress database from cPanel, because I think I'll need that. What exactly will I need to do though? Like, how do I go in and change my server address? Will the hosting provider assign a new user name and password to use in my FTP client? And then how and what do I upload to the new server—the .sql database and/or other files, too?
I am not changing my domain name.
