I have never transferred a website using ftp. I’m using FireFTP to transfer a Joomla site using Akeeba backup. I’ve read through Joomla’s documentation:
and have run into a few issues so far.
- according to their documentation, everything should be placed in a httpdocs folder that already exists. There is no such folder.
- I loaded the backup file and the Akeeba files according to the above link but when I go to mydomain.com/kickstart.php...nothing shows to complete the Akeeba installation like it shows in the above link.
- the documentation says I need to view the information in configuration.php…but this file also does not exist.
I just attached the domain to the hosting account a few hours ago. Is this part of the problem? Has anybody else done an Akeeba migration for Joomla and can provide some assistance? If you’ve transferred another way, I’d love to hear about that as well. Thanks in advance!
