Moving C5 site to PLESK
How far do you get before you hit problems?
I have repeatedly carried out the actions you draw attention to and more. I have meticulously followed the instructions in the documentation for developers but without success. I will find a way eventually but the process is certainly not straightforward. I have looked for answers in the community and tried all proposed solutions I can find. I am still stuck.
On the new server unzip the backup files into the webroot, upload the database to a database with the same username/password/database name credentials as the old (if this isn't possible update the credentials within c5 instead) and the site should be working - if the version of PHP is supported by the version of C5.
What version of C5 is your site? What issues are you running into? What errors are you seeing? What steps do you follow? Are you moving from one server to a server with similar specs?
