WordPress Website Migration
Migrating WordPress Website with BackupBuddy
Additional resource from iThemes:
- Delete iThemes Security Pro and all of its data! It breaks migrations frequently due to permissions otherwise.
- Backup old site with BackupBuddy. Make a “Complete Backup”, and download.
- Download ImportBuddy from “Dashboard > BackupBuddy > Backups”, in the upper-right corner. Set an easy password.
- You will probably need to extract “importbuddy.php” from wp-content/uploads/backupbuddy_temp/.
- Upload the entire backup file zip and importbuddy.php into the root of the new domain.
iThemes Security Pro can be re-added once migrated.
