Thanks! Now, since my install with godaddy was via their wizard, am I assuming correctly that if I move to another host that I will need to install nopcommerce from scratch - Then somehow upload my database and remake any changes I made in the modules, etc.?
I guess what I am asking is: How in the heck do I move from godaddy to another host? It can't be as simple as copying the files to the new host.
I have checked on the site and I am not coming up with a step by step process for doing this. The links I have found were dead. Videos don't help unless I have the actual process in front of me.
I just want to get it up and running as fast as possible then tweak things after. I hope I am making sense here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
What kind of changes have you made? I'm assuming that since you never had the code yourself that the changes are just "cosmetic", that is to say that they didn't change the logic in the application. I think that you can pretty much just copy the files. What I would do is install a fresh copy of nopCommerce (whatever version you're using) and once it is installed and working then you copy over the old files from your other site and the modifications should be be there, just don't copy stuff like the web.config file and you SHOULD be fine.
As for your database... does Godaddy let you backup your database into a .bak file (Arvixe does)? If so, then you can create a database at Arvixe of the same nopCommerce version and then restore the database with the .bak file. It MAY work... depends on what version of SQL Server Godaddy is using... the .bak may not be compatible with Arvixe, which runs SQL Server version 10.50.1600. Its worth a shot though.
