How to install,transfer website to another hosting
wordpress blog migration to another web hosting is not so difficult task, and will take not so much time and your nerves. All what you have to edit wp-config file and correct some text in database. There is several methods how to do that. I will describe two methods. Both methods includes if you are going to change domain name too.
Please follow steps bellow:
You have to copy wordpress folder (files),and mysql database from old webhosting. To copy wordpress files, Note that for faster operation i prefer to use inner hosting provider file manager, i will compress folder by using integrated archivator. You also can transfer folder,files through your ftp client,like filezilla,FtpRush,etc. Follow the steps which is showing on picture.
1st you choising your wordpress folder and files. 2nd pressing the compress button.
Afterwards you will get the compressed zip file, so you need now to safe archive file on your pc.
Right click ,download.
Next step is to export mysql database. Go to your webhosting dashboard and find, phpMyadmin and login. Find in left side database name which it was installed previously.
Suggetion! If you doubt and you have many databases names, Open downloaded zip archive with wordpress files and unzip wp_config.php file, in string define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘name_of_your_database’);
Choise database name, and go to export.
In new window export method choise: “Quick – display only the minimal options”>Format: SQL,>GO.
All data is collected. Next is on new hosting you need to login and in dashoboard create new database. On picture bellow only example, because you might have differetnt options.
