Site Migration

WordPress website user may want to migrate to a new because of problems with their current WordPress service provider and had enough of it. Migrating to a new host can be a matter of concern to you. Whether you are moving WordPress to a new server or to a different place on your server, you don’t need to reinstall. WordPress is flexible enough to handle these situations.

Generally, in WordPress site migration from one host to another comprises of three modules – moving the files, moving the database and reconfiguration (if needed).

Before making any changes to your WordPress, it’s always a good move to make a back-up file, WordPress migration is no exception. If you are moving WordPress from one server to another, begin by backing up your WordPress directory, images, plugins, and other files on your site as well as the database.

Migrating your domain without changing the Home and Site URLs of your WordPress site is very easy, and mostly it can be done just by moving the files. If database and URL remain the same, you can move by just copying your files and database. If database name or user changes, edit wp-config.php to have the correct values.
