K, so all I wanna do is move my existing site from d1.com to d2.com, both of which I easily access through cPanel.
So using phpMyAdmin, I download the database, and using File Manager I download the public_html directory. Then I upload those two "things" to the new domain (d2.com). I've done this a thousand times, so no prob.
So now here's my checklist:
- Make sure that .htaccess got transferred, because certain settings sometimes cause it to get lost.
- Edit settings.php so that
- the database and user are correct,
- the BaseURL (if used) is correct
Please help me complete this list. There are some directory entries in there with pretty weird paths (which I cannot recognize as being in existence), and there's a hash salt thing which I'm not sure what to do with.
