Edited by Sunka! This will be my roadmap of transfering my XenForo forum Pijani Tvor from "VPS" with no root access to new VPS server with root access Old server specification apache - 2.2.31 PHP - 5.5.30 MySQL - 5.6.27 Architecture - x86_64 Operating System - linux Perl Version - 5.10.1 Kernel Version - 2.6.32- 604.30.3.lve1.3.63.el… Disk space - 43,95 GB Files on server - 13 GB Ram - 5 GB (I am not sure) New VPS server (Droplet on Digital Ocean) Disk Space - 60 Gb Ram - 4 GB Centmin Mod 1.2.3-eva2000.08 Nginx 1.9.6 (https / SPDY SSL / HTTP/2 SSL + ngx_pagespeed + Lua/LuaJIT support) PHP-FPM 5.4.45 + Zend OpCache installed & support for PHP 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, PHP 7.0 MariaDB 10.0.x MySQL performance fork (MariaDB 10.1.x soon) PHP opcode cache: Zend OpCache 7.0.5+, APC Cache 3.13, Xcache 3.2.0 Memcached Server 1.4.24 + Memcache 3.0.8 PHP Extension Libmemcached 1.0.18 + Memcached 2.2.0 PHP Extension Multi-threaded compression: pigz, pbzip2, lbzip2, plzip, p7zip (optional) CSF Firewall Pure-FTPD Virtual FTP User support My XenForo forum specification XenForo - 1.5.1 Database - 831 MB (about 126 MB zipped) Number of attachments - 3,601 Attachments disk usage - 9,737 MB Addons - 66 Posts - 243,337 Users - 3,613 (online registered users in peak time is about 50 + guests) First of all, I do not know nothing about managing server, nor about Linux. So it will be interesting time to learn all of that in short time, with my little 8 months daughter with her own wishes that dad should play with her and not try to understand how to make a new dir in linux terminal My forum is alive on old server, from which I have to move till january. My plan is to setup vps server I have bought on Digital Ocean, and after optimization is done, I just upload xenforo files from old server and upload database. I do not have ssh (yet!) enabled on old server, I have it enabled, but after hackers ruined all servers from my old host through security hole in cPanel, Server admin do not want to communicate with us, buyers, and we beg him to delete cPanel hackers redirect script so we can use cpanel again. But still, he is not enabled ssh again for all of us (customers) couse he has not time to do that. That is the biggest problem, couse without files on new server, I can not setup many things there (dns,tweaking ...), so I am locked to do only server optimizations for which is not "a must" to have files or database of my forum.
