There are many reasons why site owners would like to transfer their site to a stronger CMS. Why would they do that? Expensive repair, poor choice of options, complications in usage, poor performance. Or maybe bad SEO resources, an unattractive image, a weak community without sufficient assistance, and inadequate protection. All these problems can be not only vexing, but they can also require a lot of money. In case you are one of those who built a site earlier and realized that another CMS would perform much better – the aisite website migration service is a perfect solution for you!
“My website is dead, but I do have a database saved. Is the migration available for me?”
Of course, yes. If the website is not accessible on the Internet, conversion to the new CMS is still possible for you. To make it real, generate a dump file from your database. Please note that only MySQL and MS SQL database forms can be handle.
How to create a MySQL database dump/backup file
There are just three simple steps that you need to complete to dump a MySQL database:
- Firstly, log into your personal Control Panel, using the log-in link, located in the NTC Hosting’s website’s upper right corner. Then, provide the username and password of your Web Hosting Account in the Members Login Form and press the ‘Login’ button to open your web hosting Control Panel.
- After that, access the MySQL Databases section. To perform that, click the ‘MySQL Databases’ icon in the Site Management section.
- In the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel, press the name of the database you want to make a dump for or on its corresponding PHPMyAdmin icon.
3.1. You will see the PHPMyAdmin tool. Here, on the phpMyAdmin page- choose the database from the list on the left (scroll down to check all database entries in the table).
3.2. Now, press the ‘Export’ button from the tabbed menu above the MySQL table. In the Export tab, choose the dump type from the corresponding list of possibilities (to export an SQL backup, you need the SQL option).
3.3. Next, choose the ‘Save as file’ option to generate a MySQL database dump file and specify the dump file name. Then press the ‘GO’ button to export and download your database dump file. You have completed all three simple MySQL database dump steps using the phpMyAdmin interface integrated into your Control Panel.
After that, upload the website database dump file to the cloud storage service. We propose using one of the following:
- Google Drive
