in-order to move any (php based) content management system, all we need is: MYSQL Export file, and config.php file. This is related to Joomla, wordpress and drupal.

firstly, export the MySql file from your phpmyadmin. Inorder to know, how to do it:

Simply log into phpmyadmin, click on EXPORT, default is SQL radio button, which is good, now click the "save-file-as" box, and then you are done.

upload all the files to desired folder and upload the sql file into new database. (it can be done by just logging into phpmyadmin and using import button.)

Now, change the db_username, db_password and db_name to the current db details.. and you are done!!

Your cms site is now up and running from a new server...!!

Any questions please, reply back!!

@desibird: Thanks for posting your tip. phpMyAdmin can be pretty handy! Though, as mentioned in the article, this trick doesn't always work with large databases. In that situation you need to use the command line method instead.

Cheers,
Matt

@matt: i've tried it plenty times and touch-wood nothing wrong has happened till date.

well, when uploading/importing the database, I'd go with your suggestion of command line method..

Its an overall best way to do any thing via command-line/terminal.

will start writing posts on wordpress and will also upload the templates I've designed, so elated-scribers can use it..!!

Manually installing and setting up OS and stack for php site looks quite a long and tiring process. Why not instead use platform, like Cloudways, for hosting php in one click? Using this platform, we can quickly launch a server without any manual configuration and deploy php site on it through ssh or git.
