Can i migrate my data from a website hosting server to my own private one?
I think the title explains it already,
Im wondering if one day my social website or app grows bigger and i need to move all the data to another server or to my own company server. Is this possible?
Thatnk you advance
Not for a dedicated server. You'll be hard pressed to find a server company (even VPS) that will migrate your data for you, that's just asking too much
As others have said though, it is, indeed possible. A few things you can do to keep the work needed for this reasonable:
#1: Use up to date standards (mysqli instead of mysql for php, as an example)
#2: Clean out your mailbox. Archive it. You'd be surprised at how many emails can fit in a 1g email box, and that takes forever to compress/uncompress
#3:use the KISS principle. You don't want to be moving 5000 files, adjusting 5000 files every time. Use includes, global headers and footers, try NOT to rely too much on paths that might change (such as /home/user/etc). Direct calls to files should be something like
