Hi,

A friend / client has asked me for some help to get his site live.

He has the development site set up on a demo server space, which i think is the exact same shared server as the live domain site that he wants to move it to, as they details are as follows:

DEMO: demosite.hostingcompany.co.uk

FTP Link: web2.hostingcompany.co.uk
cPanel Link: web2.hostingcompany.co.uk:2083
 
 
 
LIVE: newsite.co.uk

FTP Link: web2.hostingcompany.co.uk
cPanel Link: web2.hostingcompany.co.uk:2083


What is the best way to move this site, if they are on the same shared sever. I am comfortable moving sites around, but not 100% what the best way is to approach the above, thanks in advance for your help.

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter if the sites are on same or different servers.  You still need to broadly follow the steps in the article.

In this case, do you know if the ISP will simply make demosite.hostingcompany.co.uk into newsite.co.uk  or do you still need to physically move files from one place to another.

Same question applies to database: do you need to migrate tables to a production database server or will the ISP simply repoint things?  

The answers to the above will tell us how to proceed.

Hi Jason,

This didn't work as planned. I kept getting an error when trying to import the DB.

I then realised that it was probably due to the fact that both accounts were on the same hosting server.

So i just ran an update on the DB and updated all of the urls and copied the files across to the other FTP (live) account.

When i log into the phpMyAdmin on the live account, the DB doesn't show up as it was set up on the old account.

I need to delete the old account from the hosting, however i presume this will delete the DB... can you recommend a way of resolving this, thanks again Jason.

I think you need to talk to the ISP to resolve this.
