I am about to undertake moving a Miva 4.13 installation from another hosting company to WH and upgrading to 5.5 at the same time.

I found the thread in this forum
http://forums.westhost.com/showthread.php?t=10075
That addresses the upgrade as well as very similar instructional pages on the mivamerchant.com site
http://docs.mivamerchant.com/en-US/merchant/5/help/providexml.html
http://docs.smallbusiness.miva.com/en-US/merchant/5/webhelp/providexml.html

I have downloaded the the module found on this page
http://www.mivamerchant.com/support/downloads/
that makes the provide.xml file necessary for the upgrade.

So far so good.

But what I don't know is where to copy the Miva 4 files on WH's server. There are two Merchant 2 folders on the old host's server. They must go into specific places on WH's servers for the upgrade to work, but I have not found it addressed anywhere.

These modules are located at: /home/<username>/Miva5Upgrade/ within your VPS.
Mark mentioned the above in his post on the other thread. If it is a module you need to upload have you looked in that area of /home/<username> BTW the actual physical path is /usr/home/<username>.
