If I save my surveys and install a completely new version of LimeSurvey on a shared hosting service and then restore the surveys will the old URL's still apply to the new version. I don't mind loosing the data as I will back this up.

Hi,

If you export and import your survey on the new installation, your survey ids should remain the same, so the index.php?sid=1111&lang=en part should remain unchanged, but since you are moving hosts, if you aren't moving your domain name and installing limesurvey in the same folder, then your domain and perhaps folder where limesurvey is installed will change and the old links won't work.

Just another note, if you use an older database and a more recent version of limesurvey, then it will update your old database on the new installation. This is a better option than exporting and importing surveys.
