Moving a website with no access to myphpadmin & mySQL on new host (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I've made a website for the company I work for here matthew-watson.co.uk hosted on godaddy, I want to transfer the website to the companies domain but the current hosts don't have a control panel so I don't have access to phpmyadmin and mysql which it tells me to use on the tutorials i've been following. Is there another way around this problem without using the phpmyadmin and mysql applications.

    Thanks in advance,
    Matt Watson

  2. Try getting a copy of the files and database via a backup plugin.

    I've used this one and the support is pretty good IMHO.

    Using a plugin that way should provide you with both a copy of the files and database without needing native mysql CLI access of phpmyadmin.

    Thanks for the reply, don't I need to install wordpress on the new domain to access plugins and I can't do that because I don't have access to MySQL on there. Sorry if I sound completely stupid this is my first site and I don't have clue what I'm doing.
