Moving a site to a new server

Moving a site to a new server

Hi,

We've upgraded a site to VPS hosting and it's running a little rough rather than fast sad

We have  a version of metatemplate pro.  do any installation files require any updating behind the scenes for a move?

Thank you.

Re: Moving a site to a new server

Hi Angelina,

no, there shouldn't be anything in MetaTemplate Pro that should require any changes between hosts. None of the config contains any hard-coded paths etc. If you have relied on detecting the domain name of your site, then obviously this would need to change if you are also changing the domain name of your server, but that's the only thing I can think of.

Don't forget that you have a free upgrade to the latest version of Chameleon for your version of Joomla. You can install this over top of MetaTemplate Pro, and it will migrate your rules into Chameleon (then you should uninstall MetaTemplate Pro).

Cheers,
Stephen
