Been pretty busy migrating my sites/domains over from flump to hostbig (let’s hope I don’t regret it). Hostbig offer unlimited space & bandwidth (I had filled up my 2GB with flump).

I had a few issues with e-mail (not sure the mx records updated properly when the nameserver update took place)- hopefully that’s now all sorted.

Anyway- biggest problem was migrating one of my mediawiki sites which had a 1.6GB mySQL database (using the cpanel backup/restore kept failing/timing out). I ended up getting one of the live support agents to run the import from the command line. This took care of 95% of the records then a sync with SQLyog sorted the remaining few thousand records.

Need to sort out SSH access ASAP- I think thing would’ve been a lot easier that way!
