Need advise in account transfer
I'm going to move one of my sites to hostgator.
I have sharing plan on hostgator and going to setup this domain (which i'm going to move) as secondary domain. (addon domain)
Both hosts are cpanel based. on hostgator i have ssh access, which i don't have on my current host
Have backup.tar.gz of my site, but as hostgator staff said, it isn't usefull, as domain must be setuped as secondary domain. !!!
The main thing is, that i need only /public_html/ directory files to move transfered to new host.
Email, subdomain, databases aliases i move manually and setup. so just now, need to tranfer only static files from /public_html/
so my question is:
As i said above i have site-backup.tar.gz file, which i move to public_html folder of hostgator account.
I know, that to restore this file, i must put in /backup/ and only after this run restore.
I'm going to do it in another way ...
-as the only files that i need are files from public_html folder
-and as hostgator staff response time is more than 3-4 hours
-as i understand backup.tar.gz file is archive file
What, if i put this file in any folder and run tar -xzvf?
after this look where are my static files from public_html folder, and move it to their right location , and delete all other files, that i don't need ...
any opinion ?
any advise ?
