    I guarantee it's not that easy to adapt to another hosting for your website.

    Lucky me, I get to "interpret meanings" on an almost everyday basis... Kinda tricky when people don't adopt industry slang very well... or decide to make up their own slang as they go... or just haven't been around the industry long enough to know that if everyone speaks the same "tech language".. it makes it much easier for everyone...

    fun times...

    I actually refuse to speak "tech language" when it can be avoided myself. Why bother talking to people in terms they generally won't understand?

    Sure, I could tell my clients that I used CSS to generate a three-column layout with an absolutely positioned menu, but why would I want to?

    I find myself using analogies to explain things to my clients.

    I find houses are a good way to start - everyone knows something about houses : "You can't paint your walls until you have built the foundation and framework, and put a roof on. Then you can start to decorate.
    Just so with a website. You need to build a solid foundation in the planning stage, adding a sturdy framework in the structure and page hierarchies, and top it off with a roof of functionality. Then you can start to paint in the images, fancy fonts, and colours."

    Stuff like that.

    I'm the same way, actually. If you can put it in terms someone else can understand and relate it to his/her industry, you not only know your industry, but the other person's to some extent as well.

    I guess the houses come easily to me because my younger sister is a contractor.

    Sadly, I'm in the corporate world and have been whipped into submission... besides my local Network Security, Network Management, Applications Development duties... I support some affiliate companies with their "tech support" issues in maintaining their "global connectivity" with other businesses around the world.

    No I don't speak other languages ( I know a few choice words in several languages )... but just enough to probably get my butt kicked with... But English is the language of business... And Tech is the business language...but.... I only speak tech with other people in the industry...When discussing tech issues, if we all use the correct terminology, then we normally get things taken care of much more efficiently and effectively... when talking with non tech... I speak in very generic terms... I'll have to remember the HOUSE analogy.... Could make things easier explaining a $90,000 investment in some new network equipment...

    The best solution is download a copy of all the files via ftp. login to the hosting control panel and go to phpMyAdmin. Once in there you can export a copy of the database and save it to your computer. When you upload the files to the new server you will also need to login to the hosting control panel and create a database with the same name. Once that is done and all user permissions are assigned you will then need to login to phpMyAdmin on the new server and import the database you backed up. Make sure that you set the configuration file database settings to match the new database name and password and from there it should all work. The only thing that maybe an issue is file permissions which can quickly and easily be set. If you do not know what to do you can always submit a support ticket and the tech support team will set them for you.

    if you get stuck send me a pm and I will help out.

    What I was trying to say in post #7, but much more clearly explained - Thanks!
