Server Migration Orders / Customers Synchronisation

This contribution is for people who have moved or are moving server. When this happens you have to update your DNS records to point your domain name at your new server. However it takes a little bit of time for this change to fully propogate through the internet meaning that for a period you will take orders at both servers.

Once your DNS has fully propogated you can use this system to generate a mysql dump of all of the orders/customers on your old site that need to be moved across to the new server.
