Hi Matt and Dave

I need to change the web URL on my site, has this been covered in your guides at all?

I will also be changing to simple servers for hosting later this week, is it better to change to the new server on the old URL and then update to new URL or should I change URL on the old server and make sure that all of my extensions are working properly? I have a few extensions that might be affected by a URL change.

Cheers
Tim

Any news on the other Moogento videos? Smile

Hi Tim,
I personally would have your new URL on your new server then copy and transfer your existing website onto it via ftp. This way you can modify and update your website on the new URL without having any disruptions to your business until your new URL is ready to go live.

Once the website is ready on the new URL I would then forward any traffic from the old one to it.

Hope that helps!

Richard

Hi Richard
Thanks for the advice. The old URL is one that I have been using whilst learning Magento etc so it isn’t earning me anything at the moment. (except via M2e on ebay)

Would I have to make a fresh instal of Magento on the new server and go through the initial setup process doing it this way? Assuming I re install Magento, could I copy attribute sets etc across or would they have to re done?

Cheers
Tim

Hey Tim,

We don’t have any guides on this just yet. I think the easiest way is to move the New URL to your host and then copy the website over like Richard suggested.

As for Moogento guides, as it stands right now we are heads down in the design course. Jim is also heads down coding something really cool for courier rules (Top Secret at the min) but as soon as we all have some time to get the recordings done we will do.

I would expect them to be done and released within a couple of weeks.
