Have a client asking for me to move their Joomla site from register.com to bluehost.com. Is everything in the DB? I was imaging deploying a fresh Joomla at bluehost.com via SimpleScripts and importing a DB backup from register.com. Is this feasible? I'd like to overwrite Joomla app files on bluehost.com so that SimpleScripts can manage upgrades in the future. Is this the best way?
The majority of the content is stored in the database, but this excludes uploaded content: attachments, images, themes and stylesheets and the configuration.php all of which live in the Joomla directory.
There is also a guide in the official documentation on how to do this: http://docs.joomla.org/Copying_a_Joomla_website
