I need to change my web hosting : moving from a starter plan to a VPS from another provider.
How does migration impact my Koken purchases ? (I purchased the Password Protect plugin). I guess I have to keep the same domain name since it appears as an "Installation" in my account. Am I right ? Is there any other point I should be aware of before proceding ?

Hi Matt,

Complete the following steps in order:

1- To move your Koken installation you’ll need to move the Koken folder and the database to the new host. Then update the storage/configuration/database.php file if the new database’s info is different.

2- (if using a new domain name) Koken reads whatever domain name you use to access the console. Login to Koken using the new domain name, then clear Koken’s system caches (in Settings > System). Finally, connect to your server via FTP and delete the /koken/storage/cache/site folder.

3- Purchases are linked to a specific installation. Login to your Koken store account by visiting

Delete the old installation

Sign in to the store in your new Koken installation to link the two.

then, back online, transfer the theme
