    We will be moving our site to a new host tomorrow and I wanted to know "best practices" to make for a smooth xenForo move.

    Obviously, the databases are backed up, packed up and ready to go. Not worried about those.

    I'm pulling down the current installation if XF via ftp.

    When I move to the new host, do I just ftp those files back up and run the install script? Or will that wipe out all the of adjustments I've made so far?

    Basically you backup on the old server and restore on the new one:


    Both the files and database need to be copied over to the new server. Then update the library/config.php file to point to the database on the new server.

    You also need to point your domain name to the new server, but that is handled through your registrar.
