At this time, CodeGuard does not support migrating your website to a new host using our automated restore process. However, you can download a version of your backup as a zip file and use that to transfer your content to your new host using an FTP or SFTP client. After moving to a new host, you can follow the steps below to restart your CodeGuard backups.
Switching hosts has a number of implications for your backup. A new host will often mean that all of the paths to your files will change, the user and group associated with your content will change and the permissions for the files will change. In order to ensure consistency in the event that you need to restore your website content, we strongly recommend that you remove the backup that was created from your old website and create a new backup from your new hosting provider.
If you would like to switch hosting providers for a website that is already backed up on CodeGuard, follow these steps:
If you are signed up for our Professional Plan, you will need to delete the old website before you're able to add your site to your account again.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact CodeGuard Support.
