Migrate C5 site to another host
I have this site at the momenthttp://www.lesleylaslett.com/site/...
and the host claims c5 is to resource heavy, but I know its not, as it works fine on dreamhost.
so my question is how do I migrate? and can I create an account for the domain on my new host, migrate, then update the dns, or do I have update the dns and then migrate?
Regarding DNS - I always change that last. Move the site, get it working, then update.
where it says "5. Move your c5 directory to where you want it to go, (the place where the index.php is"
wont this mess up the install of c5 on the new server? or don't I need to install it?
I always manually delete anything in the files/cache folder too, just to be sure. And don't forget to set your file permissions once you've moved...

You either need to use a username that has access to create a database, or delete the "CREATE DATABASE" line and just add the structure and data to an existing database.
if the database already exists, remove the part about "CREATE DATABSE..." since that won't work.
also make sure that the user "laslett" has full access permissions on the database circledance_data.
It looks to me however like you are not that advanced with databases and rights around it (no offence, your posts in this topic just make it seem like this) so I suggest you ask your hosting provider for support on this, they can help you by placing it for you or by giving you all the correct database info needed to place it yourself
