Why switch

Your site is a success and generates a lot of traffic? You do not have enough space to store all your files? At OVH, you can easily move from one shared hosting package to another.
This change is free, you only pay the value of the new hosting (without losing what you have already paid).
It is advisable to make the switch late in the day. This will then update during the night and will be accessible on the new hosting the next morning. If you want to change your hosting, and you have a doubt about which hosting package to order, please contact our sales department on 0207 252 2310 or email customersupport@ovh.co.uk


To switch, you must:
    Have a hosting package
    Be the administrative contact (Admin Nic).

    Important information - New system
    • You no longer have to worry about data transfer FTP. These files are automatically linked to your new accommodation, as the anonymous (FTP2) and the audio (Real).
    • The SQL databases are maintained and remain accessible from your new hosting. However, they remain linked to your old offer (including in size) and are counted in the number of bases that you can create on the new hosting. If you want to enjoy all the properties of your new offer, you can delete the databases from the old hosting then recreate others. The change may take a few hours so that everything is operational on the new hosting.
    • The days remaining on your current hosting will be credited to your new hosting, in proportion to the rate differences between the offers.
    • The email addresses do not change, you do not have to worry about it.
    • The subdomains and multiple domains stay the same.
      Thus, by default, you have nothing to transfer, your site remains active after the changeover!

      Save FTP files

      This is to recover the files on your site via FTP. To do this:
      • Log into your hosting, using your FTP codes from your favourite FTP software. We will use the free FileZilla?

      If you can not log in, follow our guide FileZilla: http://guides.ovh.com/FtpFileZilla If you have a problem (lost IDs, error) see this page: http://guides.ovh.co.uk/FtpProbleme

      • Choose the folder where the files will be saved on your computer (local site):

      Default target destination is the root of your primary hard disk ( "C" in general) if you do not mention any directory.

      • Select your files to your hosting site (remote site)

      By default, your site is in the directory "www", but it can use files in the root, like "cgi-bin" or "requests". When in doubt it is better to backup everything.

      • Copy the files from your accommodation to your computer (local site):

      Keep files and retrieved on your computer. Do not lose this because they will be forwarded to your new hosting later (stage 4).

      Save your SQL databases

      Then it will make a backup (also called a "dump") of your database. To do this, several possible solutions:
        For the
      • Manager (recommended) By
      • PhpMyAdmin?
      • For PHP For SSH access
      You can find explanations for each method on the guide: http://guides.ovh.com/BackupBaseMySQL

      Recreate your database

      Whether you're switching on your own (with a dump), or you apply for a provider, it will create your own databases on your new accommodation.

      In your Manager, Accommodation section, under "SQL Database" and click "new base". You must customize the name of the database by adding 3 to 6 characters in the title predefined. Recreate all your bases and if you use several.

      For more information about creating databases, see this guide: http://guides.ovh.com/CommentCreerBase

      Then it will return your backup (dump) of the former database. For this we need to connect to PhpMyAdmin?, using the parameters received by email when creating the new database.

      You can access the console PhpMyAdmin? by the Manager, under "SQL databases":

      or directly by the web address for your accommodation ( http://90plan.ovh.net/phpMyadmin to supply 90Plan):

      Once in phpMyAdmin, click the name of the base that appears in the left menu:

      Then use the "Import" from the tabs at the horizontal menu. Selected via the file browser, the dump contains the information saved from your old database:

      To import your database from PHP script or command line, you can consult the following guide: http://guides.ovh.com/ImportBaseMySQL

      Redefine your sub-domains and multi-domains

      If your hosting using subdomains and / or multi-domains, it will recreate them.
      In anticipation of the operation, before switching you can check your configuration to your Manager, Section accommodation options "Sub-Areas" and "Multi-Domains". It will replicate these settings to create your sub-domains and multi-domains on your new accommodation.

      To assist in the creation of your sub-domains and multi-domains, guides are available: http://guides.ovh.com / SousDom? and http://guides.ovh.co.uk/MultiDom
