I am planning to transfer my whole site including xenForo forumu from curent VPS to new one. Now my plan is to first setup everyting on new server and then just to change DNS of my domain to poin to my new server but I have few questions and hoping you could help me a little:
1) On new server should I install xenForo from installation folder or should I just transfer whole xenForo folder (via SSH) from OLD server to NEW server?
2) Because my domain will still point to OLD server for next few days will I be able to test everything on new server just by using VPS IP address (because I heard that you can access your site via IP if you use Cpanel), or maybe to register some cheapest domain just for this testing. I want to setup everything and test before going live with new server
3) Any sugesstions that you have in case of such transfer
