Transferring your site from NetFirms to 2by2host
There are two ways of doing that: 1). complicated and 2). very complicated for an average user. Decide which one to use based on your experience. The steps are the following:
Easy and fast transfer from NetFirms to 2by2host
- First of all you need to enable SSH. To do that log in to your account and go to "Hosting > Settings > SSH > Enable".
- Login to SSH and create a tar archive of the domain you're going to transfer
- Copy created tar archive to a publicly visible folder on your website:
cp archive.tar.gz /public_html/
- Once copied you need to download the archive and copy it from the old server to us
wget -c http://domain.name.com/archive.tar.gz
- Now it's time to create a dump of a database connected to your website (if any)
/usr/local/nf/bin/mysqldump -e --force --quick -h mysqlhost -u Username -pPassword DatabseName > BackupFile.sql
mysql -u Username -pPassword DatabseName > BackupFile.sql
- Once we are on our server we need to unpack the downloaded file into the home directory of a domain
tar -xvf archive.tar.gz
- After we unpacked the archive we need to make sure the permissions of the transferred websites are correct
chown username:usergroup * -R
- If there were any databases, create them using cpanel
- Change DB(s) login and site path settings in website's files (if any)
- Import downloaded databases into created ones on our server
mysql -u Username -pPassword DatabseName < BackupFile.sql
