How to move Prestashop to a new server

If you want to move Prestashop from one server to other, this guide is the more complete one.

In addition to me, I created a parking DNS to redirect the DNS from 1 hosting provider to other without change the domain contract.

I had an issue when uploading the SQL database because it was around 100MB and the time response were timed out. You just need to deselect “Allow the interruption of an import in case the script detects it is close to the PHP timeout limit”.

Once you access to the store admin, you have to review the configuration at least of:

  • Review multi-store URLs
  • Remove couldfront direction in case you have CDN.
  • Review the menu (just in case).
  • In general all modules: Social links, cms block….
