Hi I want to register my site, but I need to know this before I go ahead.  I currently have a site set up on your servers.  Can I register this for now, so I can continue developing and building the site and when I'm ready have it moved to an independent server and domain?

As our hosting service is very new this isn't well tested, but yes. You are able to take a backup that contains an 'SQL dump' and your custom files, which can then be placed on top of the files from our manual installer, so that together a complete website is formed. Some reconfiguration would then be done to make it suitable for the new server.

If you register than we'll assist you and make sure it all goes smoothly for you :).

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
