Chaging hosting.. database question

I am looking to transfer my store to a different host.

Can anybody advise me on how this works as regards the database? How do I transfer the data from my existing MySQL dbase to one at the new hosting company?

Any advice regarding this would be very helpful.


Yes mate its pretty easy if your are using cpanel and going to another C Panel. Now go to "backup"In your C Panel .

Then click on “Download a home directory Backup” Once downloaded that.

Then click “Download a SQL DB Backup” =What ever your SQL DB is named.

Then new host CPanel “Backup” Then you will see Browse “Restore a Home Backup” point to were you downloaded your old one.

Then the same for “Restore an SQL DB” Then you are done

Hope that helps Greg

Cheers Greg,

I will give it a go!
