We have a Linux server running a PHP/MySQL CMS (that I wrote). We have about 50,000 users and it's time to upgrade to a new server with more resources. Our server company (ServerBeach) says we can just click on a link they provide: Migrate. And voila!
But I suspect it isn't that easy. I'm a programmer; not a server expert at all. I have no clue what to do if something goes wrong.
Should I trust ServerBeach to just click on the link and pray that it all works? (They are an outfit that provides hardware; we have a third-party company that provides server support, but they won't do a migration.)
I feel like I'm in over my head here; any suggestions?
Are there any outfits that provide this kind of service -- or that we can switch to, from our present 3rd party company?
