What is currently the best way to move a Processwire site to a new server?
I have to upgrade my VPS, from CentOS 6 to CentOS 8. I have several relatively complicated Processwire websites. I am currently downloading all the files via FTP. I will export databases next.
I guess I'll use Export Site Profile. Or had that been replaced by something else? New modules that I missed?
Or will the FTP'ed files + exported database be enough? Just copy them 1-on-1 to the new server and it will
The procedure I use is:
Download the database export.
Download the site folder (you can skip cache).
Install Processwire (same version).
Delete the site folder and Empty the database.
Upload the site folder from the old host.
Import the database from the old host.
Empty cache and sessions.
Update the config.php where necessary (database credentials, etc.).
Creating a site profile is not necessary.
