Backup and Restore --> FINAL QUESTION

Permalink
Dear all,

I'm trying to change servers and thus my whole concrete5 site.
These are the steps I followed:

Old server & concrete5 installation:
---------------------------------------------------
1- Saved a backup of the whole site (through C5, not Cpanel)
2- Saved all packages (public_html/packages)
3- Saved theme files (pubic_html/themes)


New server & new concrete5 installation:
---------------------------------------------------
1- Upload the theme files (pubic_html/themes)
2- Upload all packages (pubic_html/packages) and installed them through the C5 dashboard
3- Upload the site backup on pubic_html/files/backups and then, through the dashboard I clicked RESTORE.

I cannot get it to work. I also tried to upload the new site.php file (on public_html/config) but it didn't work out either.

What I am doing wrong???
Both concrete5 installations are updated and have the same version (Currently Running 5.6.2.1) and all packages installed (just two) are exactly the same.

Thank you in advance!

Hello muunmonkey,

I don't see you mentioning anything about the databases, you will need it too.

If your new host has cPanel, this guide I did on moving your Concrete5 site should be useful:

I hope this helps,

Have a look at the documentation that goes with my Backup Voodoo addon.
http://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/backup-voodoo/...

There is plenty of guidance on copying/cloning/restoring sites that is generally applicable (though of course I do like it when my addon is used).
