During registration, my LastPass somehow failed to save the password it had generated, so now I am unable to use ftp to transfer my old web site which is now out or order. I desperately need some help so I can reset my passwords, so I can make it work. I have tried to reset it from my account settings, so it should be now the new passport for Cpanel too, but my ftp connection still fails to work. I do not know, what’s wrong.
As the last resource, can I delete the account and start again and use the same credentials?
Do I have to change the name servers back and forth in order to delete my account???
Very nice of you…
My situation is, that some time ago, I created my first own web site in Joomla and hosted it on my Qnap NAS. There were always troubles with SSL certificates, so I pulled out an old Acer netbook, installed 32bit Ubuntu 18.04 and LAMP stack. Exported Joomla backup with Akeeba and imported it on this new server. It was for some time running OK, and I looped it through Cloudflare to get SSL working.
But recently I had problems, that the php was an old version which will not be supported after September, so I decided to upgrade it to 7.4 - but also, I got another old laptop, but quite good from my friendso I tried to repeat what I had done before, but got stuck somewhere and was unable to configure the php - maybe because I also decided to use phpmyadmin for easier administration of the database - and decided to install it also on the old netbook. And there is, where things broke and my site stopped working, throwing some errors and i got just fed up. I have no more time to bother around, so I decided to try some free hosting, and when things go well, in the spare time I would rather like to keep developing it, rather then spending time in keeping it all alive… it’s exhausting!
Sorry for the long story.
So now I have the first version copied into the htdocs folder in my new Infinity space, but need to know, how to correctly run the phpmyadmin there - shall I still create the database there or can I just somehow unpack the current ‘mysite.sql.gz’ file and it’s done?
Well yes you will need to create a new database here and import your MySQL database backup via PHPMyAdmin (Access it at the Control Panel) but you’ll have to make some changes to your code/files to make sure that your site will be using the right credentials of the MySQL database you created with your imported backup.
Please refer to these Knowledge Base articles for more information and detailed instructions:
I am sorry, I was trying again, got to Joomla install, but the connection was lost again…
Is there any way to bypass installing Joomla and using just the Akeeba import php script?
I am not sure, how it would work here… due to the different directory structure.
HI, I really appreciate your answer. If I will make it work here, I will definitely consider an update to paid hosting.
I have moved my site backup to the htdocs folder and also the Akeeba .php file to run the site restoration, as it also installs the Joomla files and folders.
The only problem is, I did it yesterday, but today I could not see any such a file in the htdocs folder. I have tun the transfer again (using binary mode in Filezilla) and after confirmation of a successful transfer, I can’t see the files there again… how long does it take for the files to be propagated - it has about or just under 120MB. In Filezilla, however, it looks that they are already there…
