ok thanks my friend, in other words the progress to move the site in 2 steps is something like this:

step 1. move all the files from http://www.24net.gr/ to http://www.24net.gr/new/

step 2. edit mainfile.php and change your XOOPS url

please confirm this to me!

1- this is easily done
2- Modify mainfile.php
3- any insances of old URL in database and hard coded files

1- download your site complete via FTP.
a) download database and open in text editor (not notepad if its large!!

Use a find and replace utility. search for the old url and replace with the new url [make sure its accurate!]

save database back to original format.

b) upload modified database to new name or overwrite original.

c) In the downloaded file set, make sure you have noteused hard coding on any file, if so replace with new url. Save new URLs to files if applicable.

modify mainfile.php to include new URL settings and and database name / password if changed above.

d) upload ALL files to new directory

NOW you should be good to go.

cal;l new site URL and see ..

TIP: before you start this set PHP debug to ON in preferences, it helps if you have problems and cant reach admin in the new site config.
