A To-Do List for Switching Hosts

If you are switching from another adult hosting service to 365hosts, the steps you need to take to accomplish this are fairly straightforward. This knowledgebase article provides you with a to-do list for switching your site hosting to 365hosts.

Step 1: Don’t be tempted to cancel your old hosting service until you have completely migrated your sites to your new hosting, and have tested that everything is working properly. If you do cancel your old hosting, and something goes wrong with the migration to 365hosts, your site will be offline until you solve the problem.

Step 2: Try to use the same control panel on both hosts. So, if your old hosts uses cPanel, you should be using cPanel here at 365hosts. Use your control panel’s backup option to backup all of your sites, and then download them in your browser to your desktop.

Step 3: Log in to your control panel here at 365hosts, and use the restore function to upload the site backups you previously downloaded.

Step 4: Now you need to change your websites DNS records to point at the new IP address of your 365hosts hosting. Please note, that it can take up to 24 hours for DNS changes to propagate globally.

Step 5: Once you are sure that your DNS changes have fully propagated, test that your site is working perfectly on your 365hosts hosting. If it is, you can now go ahead and cancel your old hosting service.

How to Install a WordPress Theme

Step one – procure the theme and upload it to your website

  1. Find a theme you like and download it to your computer. The theme will be compressed as a .ZIP file.
  2. Decompress the .ZIP file. It will create a folder with the same name as the .ZIP file. Inside this folder, you will find all of to components of the theme. PHP code, images, scripts, etc.
  3. Upload this folder to your hosting account using FTP. The location that you need to upload it to, will depend on where you installed WordPress. Look under your /public_html/ folder, if you see a folder named wp-content, WordPress is installed in your root. If you don’t see this folder, you will need to locate the subfolder WordPress is installed in. Check each subfolder; you are looking for one that contains the wp-content folder. When you find it, drill down to the wp-content folder, and then the themesfolder. You need to upload the folder that the theme decompressed into, to this folder. A typical folder structure, once you have completed this, would look this: /public_html/wp-content/themes/mynewtheme/

Step 2 – activating the new WordPress theme

  1. Log in to the WordPress administration dashboard at http://domainname/wordpressfolder/wp-admin/ if you installed WordPress outside of the /public_html/ folder or simply http://domainname/wp-admin/ if you did install WordPress in the /public_html/ itself.
  2. Click Appearance, in the menu on the left.
  3. You will now see all of the themes that you have available to use. Locate your new theme and click its Activate button.
  4. Your new theme will now be active. If you have any caching plugins activated, you may need to clear your site cache to see the new theme working.
