    Hello, how do i move 5 wordpress sites to a "new" server.

    The reason i put the word new in quote is that the server i intend to migrate the 5 sites to is owned by the same company but i am having two account with them.


    I have 5 sites on each of the two accounts which are on shared server accounts with diffrence IP Addresses.


    I have attempted to do this but the outcome was not successful because after i downloaded and restored the 5 site files and their DataBase using Cpanel i could only find 2 out of the 5 sites domain names(the root domain and one add-on) and folders in the cpanel file manager.

    In fact i could not find the Wp-includes folder for the add-on domain when i expanded it.

    I don't know what i am doing wrong. Please give me step by step on how to go about it.



    PS: I registered all my domain names with the company, so their DNS are the same.


    Thanks.

    If you have two hosting accounts, just login to the hosting account to which you want to have the sites and add the domains to that account. BTW which hosting service you have?

    Depending on which hosting company you have can't you just have them migrate it or Migrate Data from WHM if your hosting service uses WHM?

    Agreed. If your web host is willing to provide this service, and they should if they want to keep you as a customer. They should be able to move your sites and account over to the new server without any problems. Even email will be moved.

    If you log in to the separate accounts using an ftp program you would be better able to see the subdirectories.
