I'm currently setting up a second store but I'd like to eventually move it to its own domain. How do I go about moving my databases from one host to another? I want to do all of the tedious work now and move everything when I'm ready for it to go "live", but I'm wondering if I'm not just wasting my time. :w00t:

In your hosting control panel navigate to mysql databases/phpmyadmin. Open your databse and choose the 'Export' function. Select 'All' and check the box that says 'Save as file'. Then download it to your server as a SQL file.

You can then create a new empty database on the new server and import the file you have exported.
