Hi Magento Community,
Should a store using QuickBooks Point of Sale Desktop 12.0 with two Workstations and a QuickBooks Server, WebGility, & Magento ver. 1.9.2. experience any issues when upgrading a VPS Server with HostGator to a Dedicated Server?
Thank you JLHC and can you explain more on the hardcoded IP address?
Thank you JLHC & regarding Magento, one of the reasons I need to upgrade the server is that the backend admin backup option times out as the server is too slow to handle the backup.
Is there an alternative to fully backing up Magento before the server upgrade?
I do have a full backup of the Virtuozzo Automation Container that holds Magento within it but I'm being extra cautious as I currently do not have direct Magento backups due to the server processing power.
In your experience with server migration with QuickBooks, WebGility, Magento, & HostGator (or another host), has your experience been without error?
I've never encountered such an issue, but if it did, I'd be prepared to deal with it. This, I believe, is due to inadequate hosting. If I were you, I would decline. I always use a Linux VPS with cpanel license since, in my experience, it is the most reliable and cost-effective alternative for any task, major or small. In my opinion, Linux is the best operating system in concept, and it is certainly more stable than Windows and Mac OS. However, many factors influence stability, including the nation of residence and the Internet provider, so check it out.
