In this guide, we’ll look at moving a MYSQL based website to a new server. For the purpose of this guide, this step-by-step is for a vBulletin based site, but the principles are the same no matter what type of application your site is using (eg Drupal, WordPress, etc).
- Transfer our website files from the old server to the new server
- Make a copy of our database
- Transfer the database to the new server
- Set the database up to work on the new server
- Press the on switch!
