How to migrate wp site from one account to another? (3 posts)

    Hey guys,

    was just wondering what would be the steps to take(if its actually possible) to migrate a wp account to another account?

    I was working on a site on a dummy account and almost completed it, however I need to transfer ownership to the person I'm helping make it for.

    Is it actually possible to 'pass' the site to the other person?

    The other person has a website for himself but wants to replace his current site with the one I made for him.

    Any comments and help would be greatly appreciated :)

    Sure, you can create a new admin user for the new owner, then remove the old one and assign all posts etc to new owner user.

    Next download all site files and a grab a full backup of the database.

    Once you have that done, transfer to him directly these files or have him allow you to create the site at his webhost.
