Support » Installing WordPress » need help with migrating to another server – novice

  • Im migrating my website david-dale from a free host to a paid server (obvious reasons) both running cpanel. However david-dale is currently the main domain on its server and will be just an add on domain on the server I’m moving it to.

    I have wp installed for my add on domain and have changed the name servers so the domain will point to the right server etc.

    cpanel backup creates a complete file which i have downloaded but as this is a complete home directory backup I’m thinking it won’t be suitable for a regular cpanel restore in to the add-on domain folder.

    Im out of my depth with this and could do with a bit of assistance on whats the best course of action.

    Obviously I’m leaving my old site intact as the hosting is there until august, just repointing the domain for now and am not bothered by the fact the site may be offline for a while. A manual copy of page content etc is backed up as is all my css.
