This is my first post and I wanted to take 1 sec to introduce myself. I am a web designer located in Houston, TX. I have expert knowledge in HTML4 and CSS3,but I'm have only intermediate knowledge in PHP5 and WordPress 3.0. I have never use SliverStripe before, but I look forward to diving in. It is my hope that after I get over the learning curve I can be able to contribute to the community here, and not be a burden.
This first issue I need to figure out is the best method for transferring a website with a Silverstripe CMS over to a new host.
Of course there's always the 'brute force' method.
Copy all the files in the public_html directory from one to the other.
Launch PHPmyadmin in cPanel on the original server and export the SS database.
create a new database with the same name and password on the new server.
Open PHPmyadmin on the new server and import the file created by the old server.
I have my development sites on my Mac laptop and this is the method that works for me.
