Magento gives you the oppurtunity to log almast everything in the /var/log/system.log file. All datas you usually get by using print_r or var_dump can be logued there.
Mage::log('Message'); Mage::log('Message:' . $variable); Mage::log($array); Mage::log($object); Mage::logException($e);
This is a simple and quick method to move magento from an host to another. It would be prefereable to have enough skills in mysql and in linux command line to do that properly. Also direct acces in console to your both host can be helpfull but it's not required.
Little note/article for everyone who should/need work with mysql using command line interface to perform usuall task. With this "reminder" you will be able to admin/backup/restore anything like a real chief.
If you want to kill, in one line all the process launched by one user you can use
