WordPress Site Migrations Made Easy

August 19, 2017

If you’ve ever migrated a WordPress site┬áthen you have a good idea of the challenges that can arise. WordPress provides a default tool for importing and exporting site content but the tool is flaky at best. Even when it does work, the default WordPress import/export tool fails to preserve many settings, requiring you to manually reconfigure much of your site after migrating. You’ll have to deal with things like rebuilding your menu structure and updating every occurrence of the site URL in your database.

Luckily there’s a plugin the succeeds where the default WordPress import/export tool fails: All in One WP Migration. While the default WordPress import/export tool is fine for moving basic content, All in One WP Migration is a true migration tool which succeeds at migrating your settings and configuration in addition to content. No more rebuilding menus, no more running find/replace on database URLs–just run the import/export and you’re done.

All in One WP Migration has saved me hours of time and trouble. It’s an invaluable tool for anyone who needs to migrate WordPress sites from one environment or domain to another. Migrations that would take hours or even days to complete now take minutes. I would highly recommend this tool to anyone who works with WordPress.
