Works great!

If you’re going to the Cloudways platform their migration tool works great.

Looked like it work – But didnt really do anything

Downloaded this plugin to do a quick migration within cloudways servers. All indicators showed that the migration completed succesfully however it did not. I just cloned the application into the server and made the necessary changes.

It does mention it is in beta stage , so I stick with 3 stars. May use it again , if it works will revise my rating

3 migrations, no problems

I’ve migrated 3 wordpress sites to Cloudways now and it’s all worked flawlessly. This plugin is what sold me on Cloudways.

Test Migrations For WordPress and WooCommerce

I tried migrating my WordPress and WooCommerce website from shared hosting to Cloudways with different plugins. It was hectic. There was a three-step migrator plugin which looks useful. Later I found that it is for the dedicated hosting. So, my shared hosting failed again. Only option left was to pay some dollars to the developer to manage the task for me.

Then I found this plugin. It is a life saver. In the matter of minutes, I can migrate my websites to Cloudways. Whether I am doing it from a shared hosting or a dedicated cloud hosting, this plugin is best and workable for all.
