    Hello xf-community,
    I will switch my xf hoster (one.com) soon. So I would like to know how to move a installed xenforo to a new hoster. I think it works like this, but I'm not sure, please correct me when I'm wrong :)

    1. Backup database and ftp
    2. Upload ftp and database to the new hoster
    3. change config information in the config file
    4. change settings to new url
    5. Finish.

    Do I need to do something else? Or can I just import the old database to the new installed version?

    Be sure to use mysqldump to make a proper backup.

    The backup will be a .sql file, you will need to use the mysql command at the server terminal (ssh) to restore the database.
