Moving mysite.com to new.mysite.com on another server

Permalink
Godaddy is upgrading my server to another server. The new server is set up as a subdomain of the old domain for purposes of the move. Is it possible to move a concrete5 site to another server with a subdomain access? I need to movehttp://www.mysite.com to new.mysite.com. Is this possible? I am running concrete5 6.3.3.

Moving shouldnt be a problem.
Turn off caching and pretty urls before moving.
I may be able to help if you PM me.

When moving a site from site.com/ on one server to new.site.com/newfolder/ on another server, are there other files that need changing? I have got the domain redirect part working. Just wondering if there are any absolute addressing issues within concrete or the database that are causing me problems?

Hi Steven,
I don't know how to PM you, so I am replying via the support forum.
I had not turned off caching and pretty URLs when I last download the website, so I did so and used FileZilla to again download the website.
Godaddy had asked me to move the site to one of their newer servers. They set up a subdomain on the new site. The old site is presrainbow.org - so Godaddy set up new.presrainbow.org on the new server. The old site had concrete installed at the public root folder. On the new site, I want to introduce a new folder, presrainbow, at the top - so I can install the moved concrete files to public_html/presrainbow/<concrete files>. (I am doing this because I want to install another website on the server in the future.) I can install the c5 database on the new site, and I know how to change config/site.php to reflect the DB name, userID and pw. I don't know what changes I need to make to account for the concrete file being one folder lower under the public part of the new server.
Any help you can provide will be much appreciated.
Many thanks,
-Bill
