Now I don’t understand this part:

Upload this backup.php file to public_html from infinityloop.000webhostapp.com/unzipthenuploadme.zip

I already have copies of my files in my computer. Do have to still download that .zip file or whatever?
Now, where I supposed to have that backup.php file in my computer?


#183

If you have your site backed up/ copies of your site already you can skip this step, no need for backup.php at all.


#184

Thanks for the answers - but having all my old links invalidated under
my feet is VERY bad news. “thanks” for the “upgrade”, NOT.

Right now I deleted my account. How I get to the new site?


#186

Login using the same details as before and the new panel should appear, now click the create button, choose a FTP username and password, now upload your site files, upload any databases, hit “Set Web Address” and choose a free sbudomain or park a domain.


#187

Why did you use www before? Plus a free subdomain can be removed at any time? So beware that your free subdomain you are using can be removed from service and you will no longer have it at any time… best getting a proper domain you have control over.

I have got as far as importing my database and have received the following error message

#1142 - CREATE VIEW command denied to user 'xxx@‘xxx’ for table ‘xxx’

Hi,

I’ve done the full migration and have the domain linked to the new server. However my domain keeps being redirected to the migration page. Any idea to fix that?

Thanks!

I follow this tutorial and basically setup everything, except that I cannot park my domain.

My domain is ksutopia.com and my linked website is ksutopia.000webhostapp.com

I am able to access ksutopia.000webhostapp.com but not ksutopia.com, which keep pointing to the below page:

I can confirm that I have setup the nameserver in godaddy and I have deleted my old profile already.

thanks a lot for your help in advance and kindly revert!


#191

Hi there,

I am able to see your website, just FYI.


#192

weird… I can see yours too! must be browser cache…


#193

Why do we have to do this now? Will something change when we migrate our websites?
Won’t our free website domains change? For example mine ends in .comxa.com will it change the “comxa” part?
Thanks for answering.

Nevermind, I think I found some answers in Migration to new panel and in the second Infinity’s post.


#194

There are tutorials in the tutorial section with relation to DNS all sites above appear fine for me too.

PLEASE READ THESE FEW LINES FIRST

Since the 1st of May you can NO LONGER USE UNZIPPER.PHP OR BACKUP.PHP to BACK UP YOUR SITE.
Please IGNORE these instructions you can only MANUALLY DOWNLOAD YOUR FILES (PUBLIC_HTML) using an FTP CLIENT like FileZilla.

Secondly, FOLLOW THE TUTORIAL

  1. Login, backup files/database, use MOVE ACCOUNT DETAILS PAGE, delete old site, delete old profile - you will be logged out of the old panel - now log back in using the same email & password - your new panel will appear.
    Literally easy as that - you DO NOT NEED to make a new account, you DO NOT need to login to both panels at the same time nor can you.

Once you’ve got into the new panel using the same email and password you used before you need to hit “Set Web Address” and “Free subdomain” and use the same free subdomain you had before which is locked to your old email!
The same if you used a premium domain etc, add it and manage, link to your account.

Upload your files/import your database etc and your site will be back to normal.

If you experience any issues please post below or if you feel you have been missed out create a thread in the “Community Support” section - if you create it in 000webhost Services or any other section it may also be missed!

Feel free to suggest any changes or issues

Please report any tutorial issues via PM or posting below

So STEP ONE to migrating your OLD PANEL ACCOUNT into a NEW ONE.

Login here: https://www.000webhost.com/cpanel-login?to=old


We shall start with backing up any databases you have - you ONLY NEED to BACKUP databases providing you have any listed and use them.
YOU DO NOT need to make any databases if you do not currently use them.

If any appear here then click “Enter phpMyAdmin”

Now click your database name that will appear in my case “a6494435_test”

Now click “Export”

Make sure to click .SQL

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

You can use this if you want - PLEASE BE AWARE YOU MUST MAKE SURE YOUR FILES BACKUP CORRECTLY - once the script runs, download the .zip file to your computer, extract it, examine it and MAKE SURE ALL THE FILES ARE THERE.

This is your responsibilty to ensure you BACKUP ALL YOUR FILES to prevent data loss when you delete your OLD PANEL account to make the new one.

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 :frowning:

Make sure the .zip file if you used that method worked correctly, extract the files and examine them! Ensure your site is correctly downloaded via backup.php or FTP and downloading all the files 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: How to backup and import your emails & contacts to GoogleMail

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.

Which method are you using to import? Make sure to click on the left window and so you aren’t on information schema database.


#198

Back to the problem: I downloaded all files from my website, and moved to the new Cpanel, and deleted the old one.
I found that the new site now ends in “.000webhostapp.com” instead of “.comxa.com”. Now I have to prepair myself mentally for this change. ); Can’t I have .comxa.com back?
Also, I am trying to upload my files using the new File Manager but it shows an error: http://image.prntscr.com/image/e157f3d99ef34c5cbeb4c4b2fa3c8d12.png (“Error -1 - Bridge response error. Please try again later.”). Can’t I upload my files now?


#199

Hi,

I have migrated over my website and it seems to be working OK but I have a few queries please.

Firstly, I created my site using the Zyro builder which we could access through the old panel. When I click on build my website now, I get a blank Zyro website with no content. How do I link it back up so when I edit the website on the new cPanel, that my website loads as it did in Zyro and not the new blank site?

Also, I had 5 custom email addresses but I can no longer see where to create these. How do I do this in the new cPanel? Our emails were @carlislereivers.co.uk

@Benur21 *.000webhostapp.com is common url for all users, to instantly go live.
If you want your “.comxa.com” then go to “set web address” – “add domain” – “free subdomain” – Enter website name and select “.comxa.com” from the dropdown.[quote=“Benur21, post:284, topic:56245”]
Also, I am trying to upload my files using the new File Manager but it shows an error: http://image.prntscr.com/image/e157f3d99ef34c5cbeb4c4b2fa3c8d12.png (“Error -1 - Bridge response error. Please try again later.”). Can’t I upload my files now?

Upload one by one, if you’re getting error while uploading many files.


#201

@Sov400 As far as i know…you can’t use old panel Zyro website on the new panel.
May be possible if you’ve taken backup of your Zyro Website including database.

Or Just start again from scratch using Zyro on the new Panel.

Email option is no more available on the new panel.
But instead you can use Email Forwarder available on the new panel.
Check tutorials section for tutorials related to this.
