When moving your site from one server to another the process can be quite tedious and ultra confusing. In this post we hope to make transferring your Drupal based website ultra easy. Let me preface this entire post with the official statement from Drupal on how to properly transfer your site to a new host. Hopefully you’ll be able to follow their instructions as they would mimic ours 100%. This post is pretty specific in the fact that you may not have access to the old server or database and you might only have your site files and database backed up on your desktop. In this case, follow our guide if the Drupal Official one will not work because you can’t complete some steps. 1.
If you notice things link images that aren’t showing up or links that don’t quite work, you’ll have to do some homework and get them back online. This is because each server has it’s own settings so if your old server was set up differently than your new one, you might run into problems. In this case either contact your new host or contact us, we’d be happy to help. If this article helped you move your site, we’d like to know. Leave a comment below.
