I'll take a look and fix that now
Seems Be's DNS servers updated fast, i've not needed to do anything in the end. Though this is the first time i've had chance to come on the forums! Busy as you like.Ian Cunningham said:A DNS Flush might speed things up if your ISP DNS has picked up the change. You can test if you are on the new server by going to a fake URL on the site (just make up a filename) and if you get a grey bar along the top with red error text, then you are on the new site.
The move involved:
Most of the time was spent adding lots of tweaks to PHP and MySQL to make sure that lots of things are cached.
- Getting hold of a new server
- Install control panel software, MySQL, PHP etc...
- Freeze old database and make a "dump"
- FTP old files + DB dump to new server
- Restore DB dump to new database
- test, test, test
- Change nameservers from old host to new one
