    What is the easiest way to move my Cenminmod install and a single WordPress site to a completely new host?

    Nginx 1.21.x
    MariaDB 10.x
    Yes the migration guide outlines the steps Upgrade - Nginx - Insight Guide - Centmin Mod Site Data Migration Guide when you do either full server/site or single site transfers just the specific source and target files differ. But the commands and tools are basically the same. You can actually just practice these commands on test source/destination hourly VPS servers until you're familiar and comfortable with the process. Once you know these you can transfer any data between servers regardless if they're Centmin Mod or not.

    Learn how to use tar/rsync to back and transfer files and learn how to use mysqldump/mysql restore to backup and restore MySQL databases to SQL files. And learn how to generate an SSH key pair for passwordless ssh/rsync transfer between servers.

    The official config files list also outlines the structure of Centmin Mod setup so you know which files to backup and transfer too Centmin Mod Configuration Files - CentminMod.com LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS which is same as migration guide in general.

    In future I plan to offer tools for this which are currently only access with my paying clients I work with - with first public access eventually going to Centmin Mod Premium members first.
