Changing servers, domain or installation path

Move files and database

If you're not changing servers or installation path, you may skip this step. However, if you would like to move the software to a new server, the first step is to copy or move its files and database to the new location.

Update configuration file

Open and update "application/config.php" file to reflect your new domain name (if you changed it) and database details.

Update file storage settings

At this point, you should be able to access the software at the new location and login to the control panel. Navigate to "system => configuration => storages" page and check/update the path to your "uploads" folder.
