Help migrating my site to a new server

    I have done this with a WordPress site before, but not a whole BuddyPress community. I wish I didn’t have to do this, but I feel that I need to use a better hosting provider.

    Has anybody else gone through this process and can lend me some pointers.

    I am going to setup the new site first, import all plugins, settings, and my WordPress export. I will also export the database tables from my old site and import them into the new site.

    What else should I do?

    are you going from wpmu to wpmu? I’m having problems doing something similar, but moving from wpmu to wp, AND a different domain name. I’d love to figure out why it’s not working, and I’m even willing to stay with wpmu, but so far, everything I’ve tried has resulted in failure.

    I am moving from WPMU to WPMU, I am mainly concerned with transferring all the membership and activity.

    Everything is stored in the database, so as long as you get that and everything under the wp-content folder, you’ll be good.

    thanks @Andrea_r

    do you recommend simply import/export via phpMyAdmin?

    Yes, unless you want to do it command-line with mysql dumps. ;)

    I was running a cpanel – one host bundled up the entire thing, the other host took the bundle and installed it. Instant site, thought there are some latent “ownership” issues we’re running down.

    Do I need to remove the tables on the new site that I intend on replacing with data from the old site? Does phpMyAdmin now allow overwriting, or is this not good practice? I gotta get this sorted today.
