Moving to another hosting by ftp

I did create my ftp account. And as always using internet to find solutions gets me nowhere. So i will ask for step by step guidance to move my backup file from one hosting provider to another? And then on the end what must i do to make my blog page to run from another hosting?


I have:
1. ftp account
2. backup

What else do i need?
And then what to do?

(if i need also something like  Filezila,  ... where to download it then?)

If you are moving your website from on hosting to another, there are few things that must be done.

1. Back up your database
2. Back up your content

Download FileZilla
1. Copy your content to ftp
2. Restore your database
3.Update your config file
4. Update DNS in your domain name

If your site is a Wordpress site, you should click on "Request Attention" and get the Wordpress topic area added to your question.  There are 'standard' methods for moving a Wordpress site.

Filezilla - https://filezilla-project.org/

There is a tutorial somewhere about how to do this.  The 'Wordpress' people here know where it is.  You should probably wait for them because I don't know where it is.

Hello

I have now my buckup on, but i am confused, becuse this cPanel is curently for www.aaaaaaa.com  web page, which i did create on aaaaa hosting provider while making my acount there. But i want to move www.bbbbbbb.com on aaaaaa hosting provider.

So do i have to click on  " +host a new site " ? To create www.bbbb.com cPanel  And then to click " i alreday have a domain " ?
And then to upload backup there. ?

Will i not then compromise my now working web page on  another hosting server?

Thank you
