I use Hostgator and was starting to move a blog I have from one account
to another. I need to get familiar with "manually" doing a transfer...(I do
not want HG to do it for me - I need to learn the "hard way"
I do not want to use any "cloning sw" at this time - I need to do it
manually. I need to become familiar with the process from the "ground up"
Is there anyway to download everything from my hostgator hosting account, to my desktop - including plugins?
I realize it can be done, Why? Because not long ago I pruchased a blog
that included everything in a zip file, including the plugins; But, I do not
know how to do it myself. I tried to find a youtube vid detailing the
process, but they didn't seem to address combining "plugins" with the
"theme/blog" as one file...
- Maybe I download the plugins separately?
- then combine them with the site files (I had downloaded) on my desktop?
- then re-zipp?
I purchased a "blog in a box" and it was very easy to unzip it all in the
(cpanel) file manager. I wish I could "bundle" up my own site in the same way...
(I know the Sql DB is added separately)
Thank you very much in advance for any help at all
