Changing Hosts

I was in the midst of changing web hosts over the weekend. HostGator has let me down recently and I’ve been meaning to upgrade to a VPS anyway. I want to start using Prosper202 for conversion tracking. After quite some research, I found KnownHost. They have the most reasonably priced VPS host plans for my budget.

I had about a dozen websites to migrate so I definitely learned a lot in the process.  I ran in to a few errors as I was migrating the WordPress sites so I’m going to write up something to help explain the process.  Hopefully that’ll help some of you out there.  I also ran in to a few problems as I was migrating a few Magento sites.  I’ll be documenting that as well.  I could’ve had KnownHost do it but I wanted to know how to do it myself. All in all it wasn’t that bad, just very time consuming do it one by one. If anyone needs any help with migration, let me know.
