I am getting a new website with Joomla. If i don't like it, can I move it easily to something else later, when I have like 2000 pages?

The first thing you want to do is backup all files within your Joomla!
he second thing you need to do is export your Joomla! database. his step is very important. Go to the folder on your local system to which you downloaded all of your Joomla! files. Using an ftp client application (like FileZilla), upload all of your files to the location on your new server where you want to install Joomla!. Your move should now be complete, but please don't take my word for it. I just came across a resource called JoomlaCloner which automates much of this process for you.

You can move to a different server

In reply to: Re : Web design & hosting Forum

which means a different web host later, but once your Web site is using the Joomla system with 2000+ pages, you have to continue using Joomla unless you convert each page one by one. So you can't easily change to a different system, this is why you want to pick a good system before you create a Web site.

what type of website are you building?

In reply to: Web Design - Joomla

It is important to consider what type of application your "growing" I agree with earlier posts you may run into difficulty making a switch to a new application, that being said there is a way around it without building new pages one by one. Since any site you build is likely going to have a database. All you need to do is setup a new website with similar parameters in the database(syntax). To be honest if you found a more appealing design later, they wouldnt even have to look similar you just need to be able to have a space available to import the database over. Essentially all it is matching the database migration and you're done. It could literally just take a few hours.

can I answer any more questions?

Hi, Yes. It is possible to convert your joomla site to other open source but it's very hard to convert if you don't have enough knowledge about that open source. first thing you have to make a back up of your site and database before start working on it.

This is a repost. David967, please refrain from advertising. Thank you.
