* Go to your new server, and open *http://newserver.com/uimport* (there is not a direct link to this page at the moment).
* Do NOT create a new account prior to importing your old settings - uimport should be used *instead* of register.

Friendica contacts

Friendica will recreate your account on the new server, with your contacts and groups.
A message is sent to Friendica contacts, to inform them about your move: if your
contacts are runnning on an updated server, your details on their
side will be automatically updated.
Contacts on Statusnet/Identi.ca or Diaspora will be archived, as we can't inform
them about your move.
You should ask them to remove your contact from their lists and re-add you, and you
should do the same with their contact.
