So step one to migrating your OLD PANEL ACCOUNT into a NEW ONE.
Login to here:
We shall start with backing up any databases you have
If any appear here then click "Enter phpMyAdmin"
Now click your database name that will appear in my case "a6494435_test"
Now click "Export"
Now click "Go"
It will download the database to your computer
Now do this process again for any more databases you have back on the control panel showing.
If you've never created a database you can ignore this step obviously.
Now we shall backup our website files like what appears when you visit yourwebsite.com
Still logged into the control panel open a file manager that works
Upload this backup.php file to public_html from infinityloop.000webhostapp.com/unzipthenuploadme.zip
Now launch yoursite.com/backup.php
This page should load use the bottom option and hit "Backup 000website"
This will backup your whole public_html folder into a .zip file
If you want to old backup one folder from public_html type this into the box otherwise leave empty to backup the entire site/public_html folder
You should backup the site and get this message
Now back in the file manager download this .zip file to your computer
Make sure this ZIP file contains all of your site files - make sure this .zip file ends with ".zip" and not ".zip.ydushdy9" etc as that will be corrupt, so do not use this.
Instead launch FTP and take a full backup of your site by downloading the entire "PUBLIC_HTML" folder onto your computer, this may take up to half an hour depending how big your site is.
Please ensure you have multiple backups of your files and all the files download correctly
So we now have our database and website downloaded onto our computer.
If you'd like to backup your emails look at this tutorial firstly: https://www.000webhost.com/forum/t/how-to-backup-and-import-your-emails-contacts-to-googlemail/55058
So with our site files and databases it is time to migrate to the new control panel.
ENSURE ALL BACKED UP FILES ARE FULLY DOWNLOADED / NOT CORRUPTED AND OPEN AND EXTRACT FINE ON YOUR COMPUTER
THE NEXT STEP DELETES YOUR FILES SO YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE YOUR FILES ARE CORRECTLY BACKED UP AND YOU CAN VIEW / USE THEM BEFORE THE NEXT STEP.
