    Default Moving from another host and upgrading simultaneously

    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/m...rovidexml.html
    http://docs.smallbusiness.miva.com/e...rovidexml.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>.
