Essentially I have backed up Magento from my current (old) host and I want to switch it to my new host without loosing design/theme and catalog items/rules.

Current Host: cPanel, Magento 1.1.8

New Host: DirectAdmin, Magento

This new host is a hell of a lot faster, so far, and it has 136 IPs on it.

What I have done...

* Created Backup from cPanel (on old host)
* Installed a fresh copy of Magento (

What I need to know...

If someone could be so kind as to let me know what to do in order to keep my skins/themes, catalog items, and static blocks, that would be excellent.  I’m not sure which folders to copy or what changes are required.

Thank you.
