How to do clean migration

Hi, the first time i'm using elkarte is on VestaCP, but it got infected with malware and since then moved to Nginx and VPS.

Now, the problem is when I want to migrate back to cPanel, i forgot and the malware is still there. all my url are redirected to
Code: [Select]
traf-extractor.ru
. and forced me to cancel the migration.

this made me recall that all the wordpress site on the former servers i can do clean reinstall and just moving the content and db.

but with elkarte i don't know how to do it correctly, and thus i create this topic. so help?

thank you!

p.s i already checked the files and not found anything. htaccess is clean, even deleted it. no friendly url used.

p,s,2 please made elkarte use relative path if possible. it will made my life easier when moving on another host or server, just like wordpress it just works.

I would say: do an install, install all mods you have on the infected version and finally wipe out the db of the new install and import the old one.
That should do.
It may have of course directories to fix.
