How do you transfer domains with media temple and the same grid server to a different domain. Same database and stuff but iam going to put this on the main direct. The problem last time was i forgot the slash “/ “ and messed up the whole admin and site. So is there a right way of doing this. Thanks

The simplest way is to remove local.xml and go through installation wizard again.

But doesn’t that mean adding the products again. And Could this also mess up other things. Maybe not even install.

No, installation wizard will not clear the database if it already exists.
But in any case backing up your database is a good thing smile

This could be a really dumb question - but how do you transfer the database part?
