If your using cpanel on both servers then ask your new host if they will transfer the account for you. I believe you can only do this from whm. I been using vps, dedicated for years now and don't remember if/how on a shared accounts.

Looking at other discussion i see that is only need to:
- Copy all the folder;
- Copy the databases.

You think that theres something in the configuration to change? I'm changing only the server, the domain remain the same...

Only place what needs to change might be the database configuration (username/host name etc).
You can change these parameters in config/settings.inc.php file.
All other is copy-paste from one place to other. At least i did so and everythign was fine.

Take a quick overview here first:
http://www.prestashop.com/wiki/Installing_And_Updating_PrestaShop_Software/

Anyway.. if you copied the site in new place You should do the same as installing:

# While you have your FTP connected to your Web hosting server, make sure the following PrestaShop folders have ‘write’ permissions (also known as “CHMOD 777” – explanation of file permissions here) but do not apply these permissions recursively (to their subfolders): /config, /upload, /download, /tools/smarty/compile. Then make sure the following folders have ‘write’ permissions and apply these permissions recursively (to their subfolders): /img, /mails, /modules, /themes/prestashop/lang, /translations

doing a cpmove you will be able to keep all your logs. its way easier because the old server gzips everything and then sends it to the new server and then unzips it.

You at most will need to put in a support ticket at your new host to do this for you. if you don't have access to whm or to root on the server.

Unfortunately my new host cannot do this for me, so i need to make on my own.

What is cpmove?
