Hi,

Can anyone point me in the right direction to move a Joomla site from a Linux based server to a Windows based server?

I have found the Windows installation of Joomla but I did not find how to move a site from Linux to Windows.

Anyhelp will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The install of Joomla is the same, maybe this guide can help you. There will be mostly differences with settings in configuration.php regarding phsyical paths.

I did this by installing the same version on the Windows box so that it was operational using the default install, installed modules/components/templates as required, then dumped the database from the Linux box and restored on the Windows box.

All quite painless.
