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.
Careful, you’re fixing a problem with more, potentially bigger, problems. You say Linux is over you’re head – you’re probably gonna have problems later you might not be able to solve. If you’re having issues with security, stability, speed, or all of the above, you should insert a CDN like CloudFlare (which is free).
congrat for your new server any how , now all your articles are reachable . also special thanks for your good picturs
keep it up
