I attempted this procedure and got the page opening right as well but when I click on AdminCP it takes me to the old host's adminCP, did I miss some changes in ./inc/settings.php or ./inc/config.php file?

If you type in your new domain address followed by /admin then you will be directed to the new Admin CP.
Then change (in your settings) the board URL to the new URL, and the other options of a similar nature, obviously.

I think that will fix your problem.

Before doing so, ensure all files are correctly CHMOD'ed. Smile

what if I am moving to another server and upgrading to a new version as well, would I need to select all when making the back up?

You do exactly the same thing as described in this thread and then follow the upgrading instructions which can be found in our Wiki.

Try a new FTP client?
Alternatively, find out how to do it with your current FTP client. There probably is a way to do it and you've overlooked something. Check some help files or at their website. Smile

Think of the files as a human body. It's great. But what makes it special is the brain (database/MySQL). So you need to copy the body and brain over to the new host for it to be the exact same person. Smile

So if you just copy the files; none of your posts, members, threads, profiles, etc will be copied onto the new server.
