Moving TGP Rotator
As you may know, finding a great host for your website can be very difficult. Because of this, it is
sometimes required that you move to a new server at a new hosting company. This document will give you
an overview of what needs to be done in order to transfer TGP Rotator and your data to a new server.

The first thing you will need to do is backup your MySQL database and TGP Rotator datafiles from the old server.
This is easily done through the control panel using the database backup feature. Follow the instructions in the
section of the software manual to backup your data. The backup
feature will backup your MySQL database and TGP page templates, however you will need to manually transfer any thumbnails
that have been assigned to galleries.
Install on the New Server

Restoring Your Data
After you have the new installation done on your new server, follow the instructions in the Database Backup
section of the software manual to restore your data. Once your data has been restored you will need to make sure that you have transferred the
preview thumbnails from the old server to the new one. Make sure you set 666 permissions on all of the preview thumbnails. You can now
rebuild your pages so that they will display the HTML and galleries from your previous installation.
