2.17.4. Manual website transfer between hosting accounts
Warning!When manually transferring a site between hosting accounts, all associated with it will be permanently deleted mailboxes.
You can migrate a site along with mailboxes and their contents using automatic transfer systems.
- Switch to the new hosting account (if it is hosted in a different account, log in to it).
- Important! In the hosting account where the site was transferred, be sure to correct your connection settings to the database in its config file. If your site uses absolute paths, correct them. The path to the site directory should look like
/home/user/example.com/wwwwhere instead of
usershould be specified hosting account nameand instead of
example.com/www— path to site files (instructions: WordPress, Joomla!, OpenCart).
- Check the site is working.
Since a site cannot be simultaneously in several hosting accounts, in order to be able to add it to a new hosting account, you must first delete it in the old one.
