This article explains how to move a site to another alwaysdata account. You need to have the necessary permissions on the original and the destination accounts to proceed with the transfer.
To do this we will use the SSH access rather than FTP which requires bringing the files back locally and then transferring them to the destination account.
In our example, we will consider the following information:
foofor the foo account and
barfor the bar account).
We will use the scp command after connecting in SSH mode to the destination account.
bar@ssh:~$ scp -r firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/foo/www/* ~/www/
This step is only necessary if your site is connected to a database. You need to first create the database in the destination account.
bar@ssh:~$ mysqldump -u foo -p -h mysql-foo.alwaysdata.net foo_base > foo_base.sql bar@ssh:~$ mysql -h mysql-bar.alwaysdata.net -u bar -p bar_base < foo_base.sql bar@ssh:~$ rm foo_base.sql
bar@ssh:~$ pg_dump -U foo -W -h postgresql-foo.alwaysdata.net foo_base > foo_base.sql bar@ssh:~$ psql -h postgresql-bar.alwaysdata.net -U bar -W -d bar_base < foo_base.sql bar@ssh:~$ rm foo_base.sql
Change the configuration file for the previously copied site so that it points to the newly imported database.
Now what remains is to move the addresses that link the site and the automatically generated SSL certificate.
Go to the Web > Sites section in the original account,
Choose the Transfer to another account action,
And follow the steps.
WARNING: For websites using a command1, the transferred website MAY have its port changed.
.alwaysdata.net address can not be transferred as it is linked to the account name.
To move it to another of their accounts, simply provide their own e-mail address.
