Move website from Sitemagic Cloud
With Sitemagic Cloud you are free to take your website elsewhere anytime you want.
First you need to create a backup of the data. To do so, log in
and navigate to Admin > Cloud Account
Click the Create backup button. Within minutes you should receive a link to the backup containing all the necessary data.
To set up Sitemagic CMS with the data from Sitemagic Cloud, basically all you need to do is this:
- Install Sitemagic CMS using the Web Installer.
- Import the database tables from the backup (in the file data-[yyyy-mm-dd].sql) using e.g. PHPMyAdmin.
- On the new Sitemagic CMS installation enable MySQL, but do not create the database tables.
- Transfer the content of the two folders files and templates from the backup to the new Sitemagic CMS installation.
Transfer the file .htaccess (it might be hidden) to the root of the new Sitemagic CMS installation.
That's it. Your website should now be up and running again. When you are absolutely sure everything works, make sure you remove your website from Sitemagic Cloud using the Delete everything button.
You may have to contact your domain registrar to move your domain to your new hosting provider, if you previously connected it with Sitemagic Cloud.
