how to migrate piwigo from one server to another server

A lot of places were giving half info or conflicting info .

1st go to your old servers cpanel and then goto phpMyadmin
click on your old database on the left
then goto export and export the whole db

then you need to download via ftp these 5 folders

  • galleries
  • upload
  • plugins
  • template-extension
  • local

upload will be the biggest folder as it contains all your uploaded photos.


now set up a new db on your new server via mysql
if your new server is on shared hosting. you need to edit the db name ,db user , pwd in the file inside the local folder

and then upload and unpack the piwigo zip file.
now delete the local folder .

upload the folders




  • galleries
  • upload
  • plugins
  • template-extension
  • local
via ftp to your new server 

without the upload folder from your old server your photos will not show up on your new server.
