There is no update needed!

|Question:||Can be changed the server or domain at a later date?|
In principle yes, but it should be noted some adjustments!
Important: If the server changes the configuration should match the old server, especially different database versions often make problems.
Brief explanation of the procedure:
- Backing up the database tables and directories .../objects and .../media
(in PROFI version this is quite easy with the Admin Tool "Backup/Restore")
- Reinstallation of the system to the new server, the new domain (for PROFI version can be transmitted the previously existing file "personal.key" in the directory .../config before start the ininstalltion)
Table-Prefix must match the old!If necessary install additional modules, if in use.
- If necessary and if are used install the additional modules.
- Restore the database tables and transferring the backup directories (in PROFI version that goes very easily using the Admin-Tool)
- Checking and adjustments of sections (particularly the inserted media are usually stored as absolutly url and must be integrated again)
