Moving server (5 posts)

    I've taken over the running of a wordpress website, I need some advice on moving the site correctly.

    I've got all the files via FTP, and downloaded the sql file of the database through php myadmin.

    How do I move the site? Is it a simple case of transferring the files via ftp, creating a new mysql database through phpmyadmin and importing the sql file (or is this step wrong?) and then simply flipping the nameserver switch?

    I'd really like someone who's done this befor to sanity check my steps above and advise me on the correct, follproof way of doing a server move!

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks Esmi, but I don't think that page answers my question?

    I've read it of course, not too thoroughly but I want to keep my domain name the same, but move from server a to server b.

    I have the database and site files.

    Do I just copy the site files over, and somehow import the mysql database into phpmyadmin, before I switch the nameservers over?

    That page does answer your question.
