Frontaccounting Migration from Localhost to Live Server

Frontaccounting Migration from Localhost to Live Server is become headache to some peoples. Here is a some guidelines and tips while moving from localhost to remote server.There is not much changes in it. Just Configuration file edit work. The Following steps will help you to migrate your Frontaccounting from localhost to remote server:

1. Just copy the localhost frontaccounting folder. For example Here is my Codes folder. ‘ C:/xampp/htdocs/fa/‘. So I just copy the entire things of  ‘fa‘ Folder.

2. Upload the files to your remote server. I mean upload it to live server.

3. Now, Just open you localhost and followed by PHPMyAdmin. And export your database, which you used for Frontaccounting.

4. Move to your live host and open it PHPMyadmin by using your cPanel

5. Import your database there, No, need to edit anything in it. If your localhost database name and remote host database must be one and same to avoid export and import problems.

6. Let’s move to the edit work. Just open your host using FTP software or cPanel File manager. And find the file “config_db.php“.And just edit the file using any Text editor,( use your preferred one).

7. Change the host name and username and password as per your live host,  And save the file and upload it to host again,

Now, move to your browser and open the Frontaccounting site url and login there with your company and user details.

    I have done exactly the same that’s instructed here. But after I log in with the correct username and password, a blank page appears. Nothing on it. And also the url doesn’t change (on the blank page) after login. It stays the same as the same as the login page url. What may be the problem here ? Waiting for the solution.

    I want to copy frontaccounting after edit to host.
    But after copy to host and move mysql and config-db, i see, after one click in menu and submenu, timeout happened and after login again with one click timeout happened , again and again
    Is there any setting when we copy site from local to host?
    I use cpanel and shared host and i’m not admin server and i dont access to ssh and ect.
    Offcourse FA instalation in my host have no problem, but when i copy edited FA to host, this timeout and logout problem is happened.
