Foolproof way of doing it without any help module

On the old Host:
Always download a complete backup of your website (zipped or tar.gz)
Download the database
Download the site folder (zipped or tar.gz)

=====================================================================

On the New Host:
Reinstall Processwire with, if you can, the same processwire version on the new host
After reinstalling processwire, Delete the site folder and Empty the database
Upload the site folder from the old host and unzip on the new host
Import the database from the old host
Empty cache and sessions
Adapt the config.php where necessary to the new host (database credentials, salt and hosts)

Thats it

Need any assistance ? PM me.

You might want to checkout this awesome module called Duplicator. You can easily migrate complete installations from one host to another.

      Hi Guys,
      I'm trying to do my first migration to the customers existing server (IIS 10) . I ran the site as a subdirectory on my website for test purposes (everything works fine).
      Following the tutorial of Joss, I tryed the site on a local xampp server to make sure, it also works on a root directory. So far so good, everything works.
      Now I moved the files (from the xampp) to the customers server. The root/index page is shown but for every subpage i get 404 Errors...
      Hence I followed the troubleshooting guide for not working URLs:
      On the first sight, the .htaccess file is not recognized, therefore I contacted the host support. They said, it is recognized but not all modules are supported in the processwire .htaccess file. I did the "öalskjfdoal" test in the .htaccess file and didn't get a 500 Error.... BUT the rewrite rule from the hosts support, to proof the file is read, DID work... The support claims, they do not provide debugging... so basically the .htaccess file is recognized and working, but not throwing any errors (for whatever reason).
      Working rewrite rule (from support):
      RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^test\.asp$ index.html [NC,L] RewriteRule ^test\.html$ konzept.html [NC,L] RewriteRule ^test2\.html$ team.html [NC,L] The support said, a couple modules are not supported in the htaccess file, the supported ones are listed here: http://www.helicontech.com/ape/ (I think mod_rewrite is supported)
      As I do not completely understand what exactly is happening in the htaccess file, I'm stuck. I tried all suggestions I found regarding this topic on the forum, but none of them solved the problem.

      I need an expert in processwire (ver.2.3.0) to help us change a website of a hosting, contact info@intuitiva.com.co

      I've got several Processwire websites running on a local server and an external server. With one of them I have the migration issue where anything but the homepage serves a 404 error. I've read pretty much all topics about the problem but can't seem to find a solution that works. Now in my situation, I request a new virtual domain (oisterwijk-cultuur.nl) for each website, and set an A record on our own domain (mallens-markhorst.nl). The end result:

      http://oisterwijk-cultuur.nl.mallens-markhorst.nl/
      So far so good, but only the homepage works. Subpages and the admin URL generate a 404. Most of the topics I read revolved around changing .htaccess but I've got similar websites running on the same testing server without any modifications. Example:
      http://moor-oisterwijk.nl.mallens-markhorst.nl/
      I've checked the .htaccess file line by line and even copied the one from working website into the non-working one, but to no avail. I tried upgrading PW but that didn't help either. Uploading and accessing a php file works, and mod_rewrite is on. Link to phpinfo() result.
      The document root in my FTP client is as follows: /data/www/oisterwijk-cultuur.nl.mallens-markhorst.nl/public_html
      I've tried uncommenting and changing the RewriteBase lines, tried both the full path as just '/public_html/', but unlike others there doesn't seem to change anything for me. I get the same plain 404 every time. Any ideas on what else I can try? Apart from a fresh installation?
      EDIT: I've just did a fresh install of PW 3.0.72 on the virtual domain, and it seems to have the same problem, I can't load the admin url.

      hey there,
      i stumbled about a pretty odd problem (at least i think it's odd). i was building a site on my local machine, everything worked just fine. after migrating the page to an actual server most of the parts still worked. only all of my childpages where gone. they are still available and editable in the backend but i can't access them in the browser. even the »view«-button is missing.
      i already had a similar issue while working local: the site is a multi-language site and is use a form to create the childpages via the api. but i could fix it by adding a dedicated status to the newly created pages: $p->addStatus(Page::statusHidden);
      for the migration i
      uploaded my local processwire folder via ftp. edited the site/config.php (httpHosts) exported the local sql imported the sql backup to the new server this strange behaviour also applies for newly created pages on the live server.
      did i somehow mess up the migration – is it a bug – how do i fix it?
       
      thanks in advance for any tip!

      SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'hortons.pages' doesn't exist (in /srv/users/serverpilot/apps/hortons/public/wire/core/WireDatabasePDO.php line 439)
      Getting this error after upgrading from 2.4 to 2.8 then exporting the site profile and installing on the latest version of v3. Anything I could do about this, anyone come across this?
      thanks
      Edit:
      The issues started going from 2.4 to 2.8 - I used the upgrading advice on the github, replacing PW files. Im running ubuntu 14.4.x using serverpilot.io. The site hosting was originally not controlled by me so am trying to rehost and upgrade.
