When it happens that you need to switch hosts, you need to follow the instructions below how to move your scripts seemlesly!

Generally for all our scripts, you need to do this:

- Make sure your new host meets all scripts requirements. Best is to grab the server test script from HERE and run it on your new host and see if all is okay. If any requirements are not met, ask your host support about them.

- Backup your MySQL databases for each script. To do so, either go via phpMyAdmin and export the databases or ask your host support to do so.

- Backup the install folders of your scripts. Best is to archive them either in .zip or .tar.gz or whatsoever.

- Before proceeding make sure you have the above explained backups, especially the one for the MySQL database, because it is the most important one!

- At your new host, create the database for the scripts and from your backups import them.

- At your new host, extract the folders of the scripts. Then go to each script Install tutorial thread here and see what files and directories need to be chmod to special permissions. So following the install tutorial go and chmod to the appropriate permissions those files and folders. Take a note that when in the install tutorial says that you need to chmod certain folder to some permissions, now you will need to go inside that folder and chmod any files to those permissions too!

- At your new host, download for each script the config file which is usually named "info.inc.php" or contains that in its name. It is always located in the main script install directory. So download it, open it with plain text/html editor and on the very first lines you will see several variables that hold the info for the mysql settings. So edit those variables and set the appropriate new infos that are set on your new host about the MySQL databases of the scripts.

- After all this, your scripts should be operating. Go to each script admin panel see if all works fine. Then go to the Cronjobs section and grab the necessary cronjobs syntaxes and set them at your new host.

- After that verify the cronjobs work. Browse inside the script admins to see if all works fine. Check your sites to see if they work fine.

! ! ! NEVER EVER, DELETE YOUR BACKUPS CREATED IN THE FIRST 2 STEPS OF THIS TUTORIAL UNTIL YOU HAVE EVERYTHING RUNNING CORRECTLY ON THE NEW HOST ! ! !
