http://dedicatedhostingweb.org – Over the years I’ve often had to move websites from one server to another. It’s not rocket science, but if you don’t have a plan and a very clear picture in your mind of exactly what you need to achieve then it can go pear shaped fairly quickly. So, here’s my ’standard plan’ for moving a server that runs some sort of script (i.e. directory site, traffic exchange etc) and a MySQL database. Let’s assume the old domain is domain.com and the new IP number is 1.2.3.4. Step 1: Send an email to your member list 48 hours before the move. (HowTos)
