Server change
« on: 2019-Sep-20 »
Our webhoster quits. I have time to the end of 2019 to move to another hoster.
I amy very anxious about the email/https certificate after the move.
On the other hand, I can move to a hoster that cares about the linux backbone, so I don't have to care about this anymore. It caused my so much headache, since I'm a total noob when it comes to this.

Just wanted to let you know.
If anyone if good at that stuff, please let me know.
I would have to:
-move the php sites (easy)
-backup all email (4 accounts. I use thunderbird. I plan to pull them all local and then copy back. Would that be OK?)
-move 3 data bases (yes, this forum too!). I have no idea, but I hope something like mysql-php offers that option...
-point the domains (3) to the new server (I hope that one is a quick one. My new hoster offers a GUI for that).
-What about the certificate for the https/email accounts?
-Anything I missed?

Also check the php version of the new hoster.

Later versions can be incompatible when older features and some commands of php <5.x etc.

do a phpinfo() page on old and new hoster then compare for problematic differences e.g.

Code: GLBasic [Select]

// Show all information, defaults to INFO_ALL

// Show just the module information.
// phpinfo(8) yields identical results.


You can compare them and have the new server as close as possible to the old one.
Changes can be added/edited to the php.ini file.
