Sytist Manual > Installation

Moving Sytist from one host to another

If you are moving an existing Sytist installation to a brand new host and want to retain all the data:

1) Using your FTP program, download all the contents of your Sytist installation.

If it is in a sub folder on your website (like then download the entire "some-folder" to your computer.

If it is in the root of your website (Sytist is your main website), select all the files and folders and download those to your computer.

Tip: If you have a lot of photos in your system I suggest you first download everything except for the sy-photos folder then download that one later.

2) Connect to your new host with your FTP program and upload the files and folders there.

3) You will need to export your database and import it into your new host (your database is not located where your files and folders are) then update the sy-config.php file with the new database settings. Here are instructions on how to do this.

After this is all done you should be good to go. If you did not download the sy-photos folder with the rest of the files, then download that to your computer and upload it to the new host. (this can take a long time depending on how many photos and the sizes of the photos).
