Please excuse, I'm still learning.

I'm moving servers shortly and dreading it :(

Does the Migration wizard just move the database or does
it move the whole script and list meaning that I would not have to manually type all my trades back in.

The migration wizard just copies CjOverkill version 3.x and 4.x trades into version 5.x.

To migrate from one server to another follow this procedure:

1 ) Copy the php files from one server to another. USe binary mode if you are using ftp to upload them
2 ) Make a database dump of the CjOverkill database and insert that same dump into the new server.

Check that everything works ok.

You may find that you cannot login into the cjadmin after moving to the new server. This may be because of a MySQL version change from one server to another. Follow these steps to reset the admin password in that case: http://www.cjoverkill.com/manual/tasks.html#recoverpass

If you are using cPanel or plesk control panel, the cpanel account transfer feature will copy also your CjOverkill data, so you should not have to worry about that.
