Hello everyone,
i am moving domains so i have created a backup through admin cp but all it gives me is one file could someone tell me how i could basically copy my site to the new one? my site is www.mainmodders.co.cc
You need to import the file you got in phpMyAdmin.
The backup from your Admin CP is just a database backup.

Login to your FTP/File manager and backup your files too.

Copy and paste? What are you talking about?

Backup the database in the Admin CP and download the files you currently have. Then import the database and upload the files to the new website.

Are you using an FTP client or your Cpanel's file manager?

You can't copy and paste it. You must download the files.
