First thing you need to do is make sure that you have a recent backup copy of your existing Etano database (SQL file), as well as a recent backup copy of all the files on your existing server.
There's 2 options you can use:
Option 1 - Use this option if you know for sure that your host fully supports the script, especially file and/or folder permissions.
Option 2 - Use this option if you're unsure as it may be better & safer as you'll technically be installing the script from scratch and the installer will check your server for permission issues and errors, as well as create the defines file with the correct details.
On your new host server create a new database:
Then import the saved copy of your Etano database (SQL file) into your new database.
Transfer (upload) all the files from your old server to your new server.
Open the includes/defines.inc.php file on your new server and edit the highlighted parts so they match your new database and server path, etc.
The final step will be setting up and creating your cron job.
Follow the original default installation instructions: Installation Guide
Transfer (upload) all the files from your old server to your new server EXCEPT the includes/defines.inc.php file because this will be created during the installation process with the correct details for your server.
