In this tutorial, I'll be showing you how to use the server importer in the panel
This would only work if you have a host that has FTP or SFTP
These Hosts are NOT supported.
These hosts upload speeds are too slow and they often block our IP addresses for using too much download. Thank you for understanding. If you have a server that needs to be migrated from one of these hosts please open a ticket or LiveChat and provide us with the information there.
For this tutorial I'll be moving from my current node NYC 6 to LA 2 which has just released at the point I'm writing this with the help of multiservers
This may take a few minutes, hours, or days depending on the host upload speed
Firstly, I'll be choosing my server
Then, Head to Management -> Importer
Now, you would see something like this
Now, I'll need to get my old server SFTP details. For our panel, it is located at System -> SFTP
Witherhosting SFTP password is your game panel password and not your billing panel password
Now, I'll enter the SFTP details on the server importer
Took me about 1 minute since I had 100MB of data.
Transferring servers over 15GB may take up to 1DAY due to the number of files.
If your server is over 15GB we request that you please purchase the Migration add-on with your service or ask for it. It costs $3 one time and we will move the server for you OR you can create a ZIP or TAR.GZ file at your old server provider and upload it to WitherHosting using SFTP
Now let's check our files my visiting Management -> Files
