How can I transfer my Magento store from another provider?

Posted on September 6th, 2011 | Posted by admin

If your store is currently hosted on another server, you may transfer it to us following these simple steps. If you have not yet signed up, please check out our Magento optimized hosting services.

Step 1 – Create a Database

First, you need to create a new MySQL database for your store. Log in to cPanel by following the instructions given in your Account Information email. Then click on the MySQL® Database Wizard icon. Type in a name for your new database (e.g. mystore) and click Next Step (see Figure 1). Now you need to assign a new user to your database. Type in a username and password then click Next Step. Finally, check the All Privileges checkbox and click Next Step to complete the database wizard.

You can now log out of cPanel and continue with the next step.
