Transfer Data to new domain & Changing hosting (Migration)


Before you start the process, it is advisable to take a backup.

  • You can either download the backup from the application backup feature
  • Or take a backup of Database & public/uploads folder.

Transferring to new Domain

If you want to transfer from domain to another, for example, to transfer from example1.com to example2.com, follow these steps:

  1. Point the new domain (example2.com) to the existing codebase.
  2. Open the .env file and change the APP_URL to a new domain (example2.com)

That’s all, now open example2.com and it will work.

Changing hosting or move to a different hosting

We recommend that you use one of these hostings:

To move from one hosting to another, hosting-1 to hosting-2 follow these steps:

  1. Move the Codebase:
    1. Zip the existing codebase of UltimatePOS from hosting-1
    2. Upload it to hosting-2 and unzip it.
  2. Move the database:
    1. Export the database from hosting-1
    2. Import it to a new database in hosting-2
  3. Point the domain to hosting-2 by changing the NameServer
  4. Open the .env file in hosting-2
    1. Change database details, like DB_HOST, DB_DATABASE, DB_USERNAME, DB_PASSWORD

That’all. If you also want to change the URL then follow the step mentioned in the first part.
