Before moving any site, we
recommend creating a back-up of all files.|
Steps for site move
SELECT*FROM`settings`WHERE`name`LIKE ' Global%'
From this query you will get 4 - 5 records. You will need to modify the following records in the database to reflect the new server settings.
'GlobalHttpUrl' - URL where the cart is installed ( example: http://yoursite.com )
'GlobalHttpsUrl' - URL to access the SSL ( example: https://yoursite.com )
'GlobalServerPath' - True server path on the server ( example: /home/www/site_folder/public_html )
Next, delete all files and subfolders for content/compiled folder on new server.
Access the index.php file to verify the site is working.
