Moving WordPress - Where do I upload the database to? (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    I am moving a blog to another host. The domain name and everything else will stay the same, just moving hosts.

    I have copied all the website files and also all the wordpress files and uploaded them to the new host already.

    Where do I upload my backed up database to on the ftp?

    Create a new database on your new host and import your old database into it.

    Usually, Database is restore using Cpanel or script like softaculous.
    You create Database, edit WP-Config.php and upload to your WordPress root folder.

    When login to domain/wpadmin, it will guide you through the installation. You just have to remember your DB username and PW.
