Transfer WordPress Site to Another WordPress Site? (4 posts)

    I've decided to change domains thus I would like to transfer everything from the old domain to the new one.

    The main issue is my SEO plugin that I've worked so hard in adding SEO content to for each article posted

    and

    All the images I've made in every single post.

    Is there any way to export everything? I just see an exporter for the articles and pretty much nothing else.

    that will get absolutely everything
    however, you will still need to replace your image url's as they are hard coded - use this plugin

    then you can redirect your posts, pages, etc. to keep your SEO

    Thanks for the quick response. I totally understand the database backup but what's really confusing me are the last two. The search and replace and the redirection. I read their descriptions and am still not sure how exactly they work.

    basically on the S&R plugin you will be replacing instances of your old domain with the new domain url in the database

    on the redirect you can simply set it to redirect all posts, pages, etc. from old domain to new
