OK, have moved over to a VPS, imported the DB from the old host into my new site. Now I cannot log into the system - check the DB for xenForo and can see all the accounts there. Looks like the passwords did not carry across? Where can I look to see since they are not apparently in the xf_user.
Yep - when I try to log in it tells me that my password is not recognized - and it won't send an email (may be due to postfix not being configured - but I just installed it for the default domain and it still doesn't work). Mail was set to use my google hosted account for another domain and it was working fine. Just dropped the database and importing it back in now to see if that solves it.
Old site is gone.. HostGator lost no time in cancelling the account - even though I told 'em it was to go through the end of the month. Since it was a shared host, I had to export via phpmyadmin - but I have several of them here. Will try another one.
Luckily I had another account set up as administrator. I logged in under that account (after setting it as SuperAdmin in config.php)and set Brogan up an account and set him as SuperAdministrator, then Brogan reset my password to a simple one. Then I was able to log in and reset it to another one. That's one reason I have two accounts now set up on the system permanent. He indicated it was a possible session problem.
