Recommended Posts

I have a client who has an old Prestashop website (Prestashop 1.7.3.0 , PHP 7.1.33)

I want to migrate his site from a shared to a VPS hosted via Godaddy.

What kind of strategy would you use to migrate and update Prestashop.

      I was thinking of:

      1. Building the same infrastructure (PHP and Prestashop) as the old version on the new VPS.

      2. Upgrading the PHP and Prestashop on the new VPS server.

      3. Migrate the database to the new server

      3. Correcting all the errors one by one during the migration.

 

Any Thoughts?

All steps are correct.

Isn't better to ask a hosting provider to do that for you? I have migrated a few websites that way.

Yes that is the most important issue. I prefer Ubuntu 18.4 for Distro.
