Migrating CPG 1.6 to new host
« on: January 24, 2020, 11:26:24 pm »

Now that I have my CPG back up and running I feel I should move it to a different host.  Would the easiest thing be to just do a fresh CPG 1.6 install on the new host and somehow pull over the content or is there a regular migration utility/process?

Copy the CPG directory from one host to the other.
Export the database and import it on the new host.
Change the database values in include/config.inc.php as needed.
Done...

Thanks, I'll give that a try and see what happens.  This is after I do a fresh install of CPG on the new host, right?

Nope. If you just copy the entire CPG directory from the current host to the new host, all the files will be there with no need to do an install. You just need the database transferred and the config file set to point to the database.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
