    How can I move my installation to a different domain or host?
    Backup the existing database and server files. Copy them to the new domain/server and update the library/config.php file with the new database details as required. It may be necessary to set permissions for the data and internal_data directories to world writeable (CHMOD 0777). Lastly, update the Board URL in the ACP -> Options -> Basic Board Information, if it has changed.
    Note that if you are moving to a different type of web server and have Friendly URLs enabled, you will need to make the appropriate changes. Refer to the Friendly URLs section of the XenForo Manual for more details.

    Those Data and Internal_data should include 'Apply to all files and directories?'

    It must be recursive, yes.

    If your using cPanel at both hosts, ask your new host to move you. Most hosts do cPanel -> cPanel migrations free of charge

    Mine doesn't. Although WHM makes the process fairly painless. I just wish I had higher upload speeds to get that huge backup in place. :ROFLMAO:

    Yes, you should have phpmyadmin. you can do it there or you can do a dump/restore in SSH too.
