Moving a website to a new server

Have you ever had to do this? Moving a website to a new server can be a painful and tiring process.

I have just moved the whole server shanemcdonald.org, music.shanemcdonald.org and queen.shanemcdonald.org to an Irish Hosting Company – Blacknight. I was having problems on my US server, with HTTP redirects on the server which could not be tracked down so I had no choice to move. Moving a website to a new server is a tricky job. You have to maintain the same website architecture, have the same scripts, same permissions, images in the same locations etc.

The previous hosting company were excellent and great to deal with but when the site was suffering I had to bit the bullet and move now rather than have further problems. Moving a website to a new server was the only option I had.

If you see any problems on the site please let me know.

Now I can start working on new things to add to the site !!
