Transfering Wordpress Site From 1and1 To * ?

Jun 7, 2009

I'm having sort of a problem figuring out how to transfer one of my wordpress blogs to another host and was wondering if there is anyone experienced here that could offer their knowledge

Basically I signed up for hosting with 1and1 when I got my first site (I didn't know any better). I created a blog out of that site but now I want to transfer it to another host such as hostgator or what-have-you.

How can I do this without having to start over from scratch and lose everything?

Xcache Or Eaccelerator For Wordpress Site

Oct 15, 2009

I have been trying to figure out which one I should be using for my wordpress site. I have read some discussion but after reading it all I am on the fence. Will Xcache work with cpanel?

The server is running XEN, with cpanel/whm, php5

The server spec is:
3.0Ghz - 8 cpu's
2048MB RAM, and 2048MB SWAP

I have also heard some people using litespeed server, would this be any good?

Cheap Hosting For Wordpress MU Site

Dec 8, 2008

Cheap Hosting for Wordpress MU site

I have recently bought a domain for blgos for designers and was wondering what hosting would be best to start of with and which compan to go with.

Shall I start with shared hosting then move to a VPS when needed?
Which company shall I go with?

Are Slicehost good?

Because I have just bought the domain, I won't need alot of bandwidth and space, but I will need to be able to upgrade quickly and easily. Oh, and cheaply.

I will put some advertising on the site so I will get a bit of money from that, but I want it to be cheap as I don't have much money at the moment. I might also have a 'Premium' members part where people get extra disc space, etc. So I will also get money from that to go towards the hosting, domain registration, etc.

Site Hacked Via Php Script Placed In WordPress Uploads Directory

Apr 7, 2007

First of all, I discoverd this forum during my quest to unravel the mysteries of how my site was hacked. I hope this is an appropriate forum to discuss the issues even though I am not a web hosting provider, but merely a customer of a web hosting company,

I have an installation of WordPress 2.1 WordPress creates a couple world writable directories such as Uploads and Cache which are owned by nobody. Apparently (according to the tech support at someone was able to insert and exectue a php script in my world writable Uploads directory. Over 40MB of scripts, executables and files were uploaded. As best I can tell, my space was being used as some sort of link farm or perhaps acting as a server in my webspace. I do not have much knowledge about these things and consequently can't talk very inetlligently about them. But I am trying to grasp what little I am able to absorb about how this could have happened, what I can do to mitigate it from reocurring in the future.

Some of the stuff that was in the directory is as follows...

h4ckerz p
uselib24 g

The "online" directory contained over 40MB of directories such as...

As you can see, I was had in a BIG way.

So the first thing my webhost had me do was to change ownership of the directories owned by nobody to me. Then I was able to change permissions from 777 to 755. However in so doing, I am no longer able to use the Dashboard of WordPress to upload images anymore, unless I temporarily change permissions back to 777.

The other thing the tech support guy did is to create an .htaccess file with,
php_flag engine off
I guess this basically renders php scripts impotent from running.

So without flaming me, can you help me understand how someone in a shared server environment is able to put a php script into one of my directories?

What amazed me was this particular script, "99.php" actually when viewed in a browser window titled phpshell was called "c99adult v. 1.0 pre-release build #16". It basically enabled whoever had access to the URL, to view my webspace, and do all sorts of nasty things. Talk about a wake-up call!

Obviously this enabled the hacker to view my config.php file and ascertain my database password and everything else. Whether he did, or whether there is a logfile of that info that could enable him to hack the database at some time in the future is unknown to me but it's really freaking me out.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Upload To Virtual Server - Wordpress Site Developed Locally

Sep 11, 2014

We need to upload to a virtual server (managed with Plesk 11.5) a Wordpress site developed locally. We made this operations without problems many times on other hostings managed with custom panels, non-Plesk.

On the virtual server with Plesk, however, once the files are uploaded via FTP, the database via phpMyAdmin and updated the Wordpress configuration file, when you go to visit the website, it does not display anything and the browser opens the download window for a text file called "download" that contains the code of the file index.php of WordPress.

Transfering Accounts (Resellers -> VPS)

Dec 29, 2008

It's been a long time since I have last transfered an account between 2 servers.

I have reciently purchased a VPS using Xen as an upgrade from my resellers account. Only problem that I am having is actually transfering the accounts between the 2 servers.

I do not have root access to the resellers account and the server that it is on has tight security. I have tried using the transfer between 2 servers method on WHM however this has failed.

I have also tried the method of backing up, transfering to the other server which works fine. However I am unable to restore the full backup.

I have also tried the Restore a Full Backup/cpmove file [url] is WHM of my VPS however it is unable to find the backup files.

(SSH is also my week point when it comes to server knowledge)

Transfering To New Domain And Keeping Content Structure

Apr 22, 2007

what's the most practical way to move ALL the content from one domain to another in terms of keeping decent search ranking as well as forwarding to the new domain.

So like say the current URL is:


And I want it to be:


So if you went to the version it'd automatically forward to the version and then the search engines would pick up on that and update the URL.

I've got full control over all the DNS zones, nameservers, etc whatever is the best option I can do it. I just don't know what that best option is.

Transfering My Clients To A New Host But Maintaining Website Function And Integrity

Jan 6, 2009

I have 35 clients hosting on my dedicated server.

I am going to be ending my service as a host provider, and I need to transfer all of my clients to a new host.

Many of my clients sites were written 3-4 years ago in php while global vars was still off, and so many of the sites might not function correctly if I just pop them to a new host.

My first solution would be to bypass the php .ini file with a public_html/ based ini that would override any newer server settings.

Does anyone know of a good host that could take my clients? And also support the php version locally to the shared account?

I need a host that is reliable, and honest.

Am I going about this the right way?

I am open to any suggestions or advice on this.

I should probably add, all of my clients pay on an annual basis from $89-$140. None of my clients run video sites or any heavy media stuff.

Transfering CPanel Accounts From A Reseller Account To A VPS Without Root Password

Nov 26, 2008

I was just wondering if someone has made a new tool/script yet that will allow yo to transfer CPanel accounts in bulk (not the old way of doing them one by one) to another server (VPS/Dedicated) without having root access?

Like I know in order to use the WHM's transfer from server to server you need root access on both servers, but I'm asking, if you have a Reseller account, and a VPS/Dedicated server, I know last time I checked the only way to transfer accounts over was by making a Backup file for each account and then transfering it over which can take a while if you are doing a lot of accounts.

Urchin 5 / Google A . Transfering From Server To Server (Serial Already Activated)

Nov 21, 2006

I am currently running Google Analytics/Urchin 5 (v5.7.02), on a server, the server has started to act up, (on its last legs etc) and now I am trying to transfer the Urchin Software to a new server, where it would work effectively.

However upon installing the urchin software on the new server and running it (localhost:9999), I am presented with An Action Items Page, and these following choices

Obtain Demo License
Buy License
Activate Pre-Purchased License

I choose ‘Activate Pre-Purchased License’ pop in the Serial number and complete the registration then…

Urchin Licensing Center -- Error!

An error has occured during your transaction, please use the back button and correct the problem. The specific error message is:

• Unable to generate a license. Some possible reasons:

Your serial code is currently active <<< How do I disable it and use it on another server?

So all I want to do is deactivate the serial and reactivate it on another server.

Does anyone have experience with this or a similar problem or have a solution to this problem. Any help be most appriciated.

Or even a Contact Number so that i can get some one over the phone!

Is A 1and1 VPS Right For Me?

Sep 19, 2007

Well, my current hosting at is expiring in a couple of months and I don't want to stay with them for a minute longer.

I have about 5 domains that I require hosting for, and another few which will be aliases to these domains.

I had a look at and would need a separate hosting package for each domain.

I then looked at 1and1's virtual private servers. These hopefully fit the bill as it is quite cheap at £15/pm.

I was wondering if this fits my needs. Would I be able to host several websites here? Or just one domain?

Also, they say that I have root access, will I be able to do just about anything on there then? E.g. install imagemagick, edit php.ini, enable wildcard DNS and use mod_rewrite for subdomains... etc.

Given that I have root access to the VPS, how can it be that they say the max number of email accounts is 150, what else is restricted?

I'm a bit confused as to what sort of abilities a VPS will give me. 1and1's site doesn't explain what I could use it for as well as I would like.

1and1 Getting Better

Jul 13, 2008

1and1 has always getting a lot of fudge here on WHT and a lot of times they deserve it. In the past their support has totally sucked. However, I have noticed lately that their support is actually improving A LOT!! I've been getting responses within a few hours and that is really good considering it would take days before. Also, in the past their responses were just generic and non-helpful but lately they have actually provided personal help and attention and fixed all the issues I've had. I know this should be expected from a registrar/webhost but I have to say I'm quite impressed. They are after all a really budget company.

Btw, I use them for all my domain registrations and also have a small hosting package with them for my static small sites. I'm not brave enough to put my more busy sites there yet.

DNS Conundrum With

Sep 8, 2007

This is the problem I'm facing:

I have a domain registered with ( I have a VPS running Linux with a different host. I have configured bind to run as my nameserver for the domains and (I have run dig to verify the bind is configured properly.)

The problem: when I try to change the primary and secondary name servers for at using the form provided by the 1and1 control panel, I get the following error message:

The name server is not sufficient or hasn't been approved.Subdomains of the original domainname as name servers for the original domainname need a fixed IP! Please refer to the FAQ (keyword: Glue domain)!

So I enter the IP address and I get the following error message:

The name server is not sufficient or hasn't been approved.

So I called support hoping they could fix this. But it appeared that the young woman who took my call was unable to comprehend the problem (she kept referring to Plesk -- which had nothing to do with the issue here).

I was prepared for this and hoping to get passed up to someone who knew what she was doing. But before that could happen, after going around in circles with Level 1 support for about 10 minutes, I mysteriously got disconnected! (I guess I had used up my time quota.)

Am I SOL here? It seems like a chicken-and-egg problem. I can't change the DNS settings until 1and1 is able verify that my nameserver domains are valid. But they won't be valid until 1and1 changes them. And 1and1 support seems totally incapable of providing any help.

I know I could use a free third-party service, but I wanted to have some practice running my own nameserver. Also I want to be able to add subdomains myself. (Right now, I have to manually add them through and am limited to 5.)

Any help is appreciated. Otherwise, I'll just use this as an opportunity to vent my frustration at's support. <sigh>

Changing From 1and1

Jul 23, 2008

I have been with this hosting company for almost five years now and until today the service has been excellent. I am having massive ftp issues. I have 41 different domains that I run for a variety of projects. Needless to say I keep each website in a different folder. I just tried to switch one of my blogs from blogger to wordpress. Blogger won't let me have my domain back and keeps blocking it with a 404 error. But that is a separate issue. I tried using one of my extra domains and pointing it at my new blog folder. But it keeps bouncing back to my root directory. I contacted 1and1 and they reset the server, but now they are blaming me for the issue. I can access the blog through it's subdirectory but I can't post the blog there.

Anyways, I am not ready to move over all of my websites, but I do want to move my blog to a new host. I am mainly hoping that I can escape 1and1 and blogger in one move if I change the host of this one website. It's funny I have been happy for years and recommended them to friends, but now I am very disappointed. Can someone recomend a reliable host? I am looking for one with a cheap lowend package to start off. If I end up staying I will need a lot of bandwidth as I have a podcast that had a lot of traffic. Basically, there are so many companies that I just can't tell which ones are reliable. That's my main concern. Also I use SQL a lot. Thanks!
