Moving sites between hosts
« on: December 18, 2017, 14:14:04 pm »
Hello all,

I'm mostly looking for general advice & guidance on moving sites between hosts. Specifically what I need is to know what data/tables to update if the sites get out of sync during the implementation & testing phase on the new host?
At the moment I can see that 3 new orders have been added to the Old site, that need to be transferred to the New one. If I do this in SQL:

What I do if the versions are recent is dump all VM user related , VM order related and Joomla user tables in the new site and replace with the old site versions

Then run the table updater
