Hii there,

I am currently hosting my website on a windows server and have renewed it a month back. I want to host the php list on it now. But later after two months i will be shifting my hosting to a new service provider and the website will be hosted on a new linux server. Is it possible to smoothly transfer the existing phplist to another server with different operating system.

My website:

I don't see why not, but you'll need to backup your database so you can re-create it on your *unix server and don't forget to keep your config.php file backed up as well as the info that contains will be vital. Once you've uploaded the files to the new server, you'll need to adjust the config file to take account of the database name and other details as well as the path to your phpList installation.
