Moving mysql database

apps

#1

Hi, I have a phpbb database that I want to move from one domain to the other. both are hosted on the same plan. can I just create a new mysql hostname, then when propogated, remove the old mysql hostname? Or, do I need to create a new db, export and import?

I think you should just be able to change user name and password to connect to the database. I’m guessing the host stays as the same. If the database has the same name then that should work too?

Just creating a new hostname as you suggested should work fine :slight_smile:
