migrating wordpress to another webserver
i have a client whose wordpress website is functioning normally and they want to change their web hosting to another company
the website needs to be migrated exactly the way it is now onto the new webserver
i found this link http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
in order to migrate i am guessing i need to do the following
export the sql file from the existing webserver so that i will have taken a backup of the website and also information regarding the websites post, content and other details.
download wordpress file and edit wp-config.php and specifying the database details on the new server
upload wordpress files to new server and install wordpress on the new webserver
access phpmyadmin on the new server and import the sql file that i
exported from the existing webserver
if i follow the above steps will wordpress be installed on the new server and work exactly the way the website is working currently with all the posts, content, video, images etc
please advice if i have missed anything
Yes, using that steps your wordpress blog will completely get transferred. However, also upload the theme which currently your client is using.
