Since already had a shared hosting account with godaddy and just wanted to move over the problem sites which was this one and a new site i'm working on now. So moving it to a whole new server was a bit of a hassle I havn't used Plesk for years now and cause it's wordpress I have it hosted on Linux, argghhh I'm a windows guy so this stuff goes over my head. Few things I think you should be aware if you own a blog and move it to a virtual server.
- Setup all the databases and websites before moving over the old site
- Test the website before you change the nameservers over
- Upgrade PHP to 5.3
So i've been a bit quite lately because of this move, it's actually taken a few days to make sure everything was setup correctly, but in the end I changed the nameservers over and didn't appear to have one problem after go live which is good.
