In Topic: how to build new site while old site online

Thanks for the tip BD.

So far, search results I've looked at all favour using a subfolder.

Are you saying there are no rewrites at all, using a subdomain ?


PS are the rewrites referred to just pathway adjustments, or something more ?

In Topic: migrating from Hsphere control panel to cPanel

I was a bit confused by your response wording above - it had me wondering if I was possibly doing the migration....don't know why it came across like that, it just did....anyway, going by info elsewhere it seems MDD does the migration ( even if it's a laborious one like mine might be ). So I'll run with that.

Sorry if it seemed an inane question.

Don't mean to bump, and I assume you're very busy, but did you miss this last question / response of mine ? ( above )

thanks mike,

The files will need to be transferred via FTP and then the databases manually via phpMyAdmin. It's not terribly complicated but very labor intensive.

And is the migration something I will be doing or can / will you be doing it ?

Joomla is currently in a transitional period of versions. Versions that are total rewrites of the platform so it's a migration rather than an upgrade. I don't want to risk complicating things with a migration of versions along with a migration of sites ( as well as the control panel differences that may or may not mean extra care ).

Firstly, I would like to get away from the current webhost, especially given recent circumstances. Move to somewhere I feel I might be able to trust more ( like MDD ! ).

I'd like to be able to do it your way but I think I'm going to take smaller, ( simpler, less risky ? ) steps, one thing at a time.
