I have a website that runs silverstripe cms, on one host currently. But now i want to transfer the domain and the website to another host. How do i transfer the website including the cms to the new host? Alternatively how do i download the website files from the cms? Because if i have to download the .php files from the server directly, they will be converted to .html automatically by the server..

Let me know soon.

Thanks

A quick (unfinished guide) is at https://github.com/mattclegg/silverstripe-doc-restructuring/blob/master/output/recipes/publishing-to-web-server.md.

- Reinstall SilverStripe on your new host (to make sure it supports it)
- Copy your mysite, themes folders
- Copy the database across
- Copy your 'assets' folder across.
