Topic: How to move a V2.x installation to a new web server?
I'm moving my web site to a new host.
I've set up the new host and copied by entire web site (inc CuteNews directories) but not yet changed the domain name to point at it (so testing by changing the HOSTS file on my PC)
Everything works apart from CuteNews - I can log in but config settings are missing. The right number of news items are listed but as "no title:", no category, correct date. Clicking on the "no title:" gets me "News entry not found!"
Do I need to take a CuteNews backup on the old server and copy the file to new?
Should I install a fresh copy of CuteNews rather than rely on the FTPed copy?
Should testing by using changed HOSTS file work OK?
