Hi. I've found a new host (props to Semoweb.com! They've been great!). Most of my sites are pretty basic, but one is a semi-busy ecom site with SSL. I'm just looking for tips on how to switch that one with minimal downtime and no data loss. I gather these are my steps:
[on the old server]
put shop into "down for maintenance" mode
do a complete backup in cpanel
[on the new server]
restore from backup
take out of maintenance mode
[at the registrar]
change the nameservers
update the SSL
Its that last step I have really no clue about. I've always been a bit confused on SSL and I stumble through the renewal process every couple of years. It is a "Turbo" cert from godaddy.
Basically, you'll need to reinstall the SSL cert on the new server just like you did the first time. However, instead of ordering a new one, you'd go to GoDaddy and 'reissue' it.
