• Thnx Aamir bhai that really helps.

  • Thanks Aamir. Nice and simple explanation. Unfortunately I was having a lot of problems with my VPS provider which eventually lead to to switch to a better company. I was forced to move everything a couple of different times over the week or so. :)

  • How the hell this link is appearing on Google News Home Page under scientific category. This is no news…this is just an article like millions out there…SEO, a poor algorithm of news collection from google or what?

        I mean over-permissions..?
        Am sorry i just flied through the article if I mis-read something but isn’t it granting Full permissions to Everyone?
        AM not familiar with webhosting but giving 777 rights could be dangerous..? why not 770?

        • admin

          webserver writes into this folder, hence 777 is required. This is a public folder in wordpress installation and stores attachments and files that appear in posts.

            yeah i got a little idea of the nature of the directory by it’s name & location, hence got a little worried abt the 777 rights.
            Anyways, thanks for the clarification :) will look into it someday but let’s hope I never have to :p
            p.s is the directory on PP also 777’ed? :p just kidding…

            • I good way to transfer files is that simply zip the public_html folder and transfer it using wget or anything like this then unzip it on the new server it will not take more than 5 mins

  • Very nice article, i had to move a big site though it was not a blog but a forum, but i had to read a lots of articles to move.
    Thanks for the article.
    I guess propakitani.pk moved to a better server recently. Is it so?

  • Now then if you see new hosting provider and existing hosting provider free transfer from one host to another with any hosting package that your purchase with them. This will ease the time taken for us to migrate to new server.
