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 have a multi-site account and have the space, you can keep your old backups as long as you need them, but if you are signed up for our Ninja 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 support.
