Wah ciao! DK migrate slower than tortoise!

Finally migrated everything from Dreamhost to Gatorhost. WOOHOO!!!

It was a tedious task. I wish Gatorhost won’t fail me the same way that Dreamhost failed me. I don’t want to change webhost again in another year time. If only there is a better process for migrating wordpress. Something automated would be great. (LAZY ME!!!)

I think I can write a blog post on how to migrate your entire wordpress from 1 webhost to another. Although I’m sure this is not the best method. Else I wouldn’t have put this up while I was transferring my stuff over.


Seriously, I think the tortoise can migrate faster than me.

OK, now that I’ve finally moved my blog to the new webhost, let’s start clearing some backlogs blog articles. Hello Gatorhost! :D

    It is not the migrating that is slow. It is the PROPAGATING. Learn to use the right word please.

    Susan: DNS propagating took less than 24hr for all local ISP. I was referring to the migration of data from the old webhost to the new one. Is that the right word? :)

    Vic: Yeah… will do so soon. :0

    Did you download all your stuff, and then re-upload it to the new host? I was thinking, what a great idea for a service if this can be automated for anyone who’s thinking of migrating hosts…

    pkchukiss: I wish it could be so easy. Still need to handle the database and the WP installation. Not to forget email.

  10. Next time when you do a host migration, set your email in your old host to forward them to another temporary email address (gmail, yahoo etc). That way, when the new IP is not propagated yet, you will still receive the emails sent to your old host.

    if you’re currently using cpanel, and your future webhost also uses cpanel, then everything will be automated and smooth.

    congrats on the move, and do you mean hostgator?
