Transferring OwnCloud to New Host


#1

Due to the horrendous support and security issues I have been having with Bluehost, I am looking to transfer to a new hosting company. What I am wondering is, whats the best way to deal with moving to a new server? My one idea was to (once the new server is ready for this) just disable the OwnCloud service on my desktop, install OwnCloud Server on the new server, configure the OwnCloud desktop software to use the new server, and then once the OwnCloud desktop service is running, everything should just start syncing and upload to the new server. Does that sound correct? Do I need to do anything special that I didn't think of?

Thanks for the help

Hi,

there is a huge section on how to migrate to another server available in the documentation.
