Move existing Pivotx website to new host

Postby Rudy » Wed Feb 05, 2014 6:21 pm


Complete newbie here to Pivotx, but a seasoned web guy none the less.
I have been asked to move a Pivotx site to a new host. I have never used Pivotx before, but other CMS systems.

Can I simply FTP the site to new location, granted its running php, mysql, etc?

Will there be any problems? Any special permissions I have to setup, not ported by ftp?
I have temp located the site to my web server, seems to be working good, but haven't got the clients account details to logon to CMS just yet to know for sure.

Kind thanks

If the site is using a flat file database, you can just move all the files and you are done.
