    Do both the old and the new have cpanel? If so, it's pretty simple. Cpanel can transfer from server to server and is pretty reliable.

    Make sure you have looked at https://www.zen-cart.com/entry.php?3...d-of-upgrading for guidance.

    Rethink 1.5.5f for 1.5.6c. We've been impressed with c and it's increase in load speed alone.

    Last resort on the phpMyAdmin. Open phpMyAdmin, click the plus in front of the database you need to copy. Then, click on export. Select SQL format and click on Go.

    My favorite way to pull the database is using the MySQL Backup mod. Create backup, download to your computer, import on new host. (Be sure to put the site into maintenance mode as soon as you begin this process, of course.)

    And my additional 2 cents:

    Here is generically the recommended approach: https://www.zen-cart.com/content.php...fferent-server

    Thing is, it is generally suggested to do one or the other actions, not both of moving elsewhere and upgrading. Upgrading by rebuilding is suggested (similar to the move your making but when going to another platform there can be some things that are quirky.) The recommended upgrade instruction is: http://www.zen-cart.com/entry.php?3-...d-of-upgrading

    Make backups of everything. If you want to just stay in business and out right drop your current host then suggest to install ZC to the new host to have the minimal software changes to support actually selling your product, then setup a development site/location to incorporate the other changes desired and practice the upgrade/process to be sure it can go without a hitch.
