alright guys.

just a quick one for you.

im going to be moving servers shortly and i would just like to ask what files i need from the server

obviously i need to dump mysql files but what folders do i need to take - and then edit if any.

do i just download and then upload the public_html folder or is there anything else that i need.

i have read a guide but it makes little or no sense to me.

if someone could explain simply what it is i actually do i would be most greatful

thanks

i would download all the contents of the public_html folder that are added after ur initial signup...then i would export ur database.

i would upload all the contents i download into ur ftp

then make a database and set it up exactly as u would starting a new nuke.

Some will say to make a backup via c-panel.....i have found this to be unreliable and more trouble then its worth.

my opinion though...others here know far more then i.

Funny thing is that I have found this also to be the case. A real shame because I really like the concept. I end up getting files with funny extensions on them, and so, they end up being "not found"... Sad

Good advice again their Mr. Darklord Sir. <-- there, is that better? Wink
