How to migrate from one server to another (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm trying to move to a new hosting provider.

    My new hosting company are having problems doing a Cpanel to Cpanel migration for some reason. And seems my old host is not being too forth coming in helping the new hosting company to do the move. So it looks like I may have to do the migration myself somehow.

    I already have the BackUpWordPress plugin installed in wordpress. But totally confused on what I need to do to migrate.

    Any tips?

    i just went through the same situation with moving from justhost to hostgator. I had 4 blogs and 1 wesbsite. one domain had domain privacy and it was a pain in the butt to get justhost to remove it.

    after many phone calls and emails, justhost finally removed the privacy and provided me with an EPP code, which i provided to hostgator.

    if your domain has domain privacy, then that could be part of the problem.

    hostgator transferred 1 website with alot of files and 4 blogs. everything worked fine, except for the blog that had the domain privacy.

    once that was taken care of, everything worked fine.

    i purchased a wordpres plugin called backup creator.

    it allows you to backup, restore or clone a blog and it works great.

    ask your new host if they can find out if you have domain privacy enabled on the old domain. it is easy for them to do it. it is some whois link.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the heads up on that plugin. It looks really good. If my hosting company can't sort it out I may well go down that route! Thanks.
