i did a website(test) in another infinityfree account …
that website is completly done but i forgot that i used a subdomain like “mywebsite .freecluster . eu” instead of use a main domain.
So after i buyed a .com (mywebsite . com) at namesilo registar.
now i create a fresh brand new account in infinity free starting from begging with custom domain “mywebsite . com” (namesilo) and i want to back up the test website that i made before in another account to the new one so i could have everything setup in .com (namesilo) domain.
the old website “mywebsite.freecluster.eu” is a wordpress website that when i did i installed wordpress via softalicous etc etc…
so what i did was backup myPHP database via cPanel ( exported it ) and saved in a folder in my computer. Then i backed up the htdocs folder via Filezilla to the same folder in my computer.
Then i logged in to my new infinityfree account for custom domain (mywebsite . com) and uploded the old database via cPanel myPHP ( import ).
Then via FTP i upload the backedup htdocs folder. Until here i think i did all good.
Regarding to the nameservers. i have putted the infinityname servers [ns1.epizy .com] [ns2 . epizy. com]
at namesilo register so when someone acess the “mywebsite . com” it will reach my website in infinityfree (custom domain).
Now my question is:
when i try to reach “mywebsite . com” i got an error " we cant reach this website: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR ".
i setup this yesterday. i know maybe i need to wait… but i have few questions.
In my old website i had installed the free ssl certificate in infinityfree cPanel could i install cloudfare for the complete website domain .com ?
what about all the old links of old website? how can i update all the links from mywebsite.freecluster.eu to mywebsite.com ? as in database and wordpress website it is all under mywebsite.freecluster.eu…
The file and database backup already contain the full WordPress installation, so no need to install WordPress with Softaculous first and then replace everything with a backup.
There are multiple ways to update a website URL in WordPress. But if you’re restoring the site from a backup, one effective way is to decompress the database backup, open it in a text editor and update the URLs there.
i already did it… and configured cloudfare with infinityfree and my custom domain on infinityfree…
but now i cannot acess my website… with https
there is any conflit if i use cloudfare and lets encypt ssl free certificate with infinityfee… ?
because there is as expirity date on infinityfree lets encrypt ssl certificate… that will generate unprotected url ?
