WP Migrate DB

Migrates your database by running find & replace on URLs and file paths, handling serialized data, and saving an SQL file.

Why wouldn't I just use WordPress' built-in XML export/import to migrate my site?

WP Migrate DB will migrate your entire WordPress database, WordPress' built-in tools will not. For more details, please see our blog post, WordPress XML Export/Import vs. WP Migrate DB Pro.

Will you migrate my site for me?

Sorry, but we do not offer site migration services at the moment.

Does the plugin support multisite?

Yes, but the Multisite Tools addon for the pro version does a lot more with multisite like migrating a subsite as a single-site install.

Does the plugin migrate files as well?

No, it only operates on the database. The pro version's Media Files addon allows you to migrate media files.

Why do I end up with a wp-login.php download instead of the exported SQL file?

It is likely you have a download manager plugin or extension installed in your web browser. You will need to disable it for the SQL download to work properly.

Does the plugin handle serialized data?

Yep, it will run a find & replace on your serialized data and migrate it without corrupting it. See our documentation for details.

What are the requirements?

They are the same as the requirements for WP Migrate DB Pro.

Do you offer email support?

If you upgrade to WP Migrate DB Pro, we will gladly provide you with email support. We take pride in delivering exceptional customer support. We do not provide email support for the free version.
