trying to clone Joomla with no luck..

Hello everyone Im newbie here and this might be very simple but I just cant get my head around it.

I have 3 joomla sites I need to move on new server. I bought this XCloner for that... now Im not sure if this tool is for cloning or only backing up?

So I managed to install it... did a back up... then I tried the clone function.. It gaved some errors and didnt work... then.. I took the whole back up file... 20 mb... unzip it and moved via ftp to new server... got into the xcloner Backup and Restore... but dont know what to do next... i gaved the new mysql passes and they looked like working but i get this error on the site

Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

so what should i do next... i already updated the new details also to joomlas configuration.php.

thanks for any helps to lead me to the right track... =)

Hi there! Please check the XCloner backend left menu link called Restore, you will find all the details there!

This Restore FAQ will also help http://www.joomlaplu...../catid,26/ , to make the restore properly you will need to use the XCloner restore script we provide

ok... i think im not too far from getting this work as i where able to install it to subfolder but not yet into httpdocs where the backup file exists and where i want to have the joomla.

what should i write as the ftp path? httpdocs/ or
/var/www/vhosts/ or leave it empty... or something else... i tried all those but get error a little different though...

if i have httpdocs there i get this one

onnected to, for user paul, starting transfer...
Current directory is now: /httpdocs TAR error: Unable to create directory '/var/www/vhosts/'
TAR error: Unable to create path for /var/www/vhosts/
Unable to write to directory /var/www/vhosts/! Please check that this directory is writeable!

if i leave it empty..

Connected to, for user paul, starting transfer...
Couldn't change directory to , please verify that the ftp location exists or use the "Install files directly" option!

can you help... what im missing...
