Too many hacks needed and it borked the database

OK. This plugin seemed like a lifesaver. Out of the box, one-click install and one-click export/import? I was moving from development on one hosting (Hostpapa) to live-site (LCN) and this sounded good to me Until the dreaded "export failed" popup. It took four attempts for the export to work. Wary of this from the off, I made a fresh install on another sub on Hostpapa and it just didn't ever work. No amount of hacking .htacess or wp-config would let the upload via media files work. That annoyingly generic http error, every time. So instead I moved onto my offline enviroment (LocalFlywheel) and it failed a few times before finally, I got it working. Eventually happy with the result, I went to migrate to the live site (hosted on LCN) and so far so good, the media Gallery upload is working fine.And then the dreaded popup. "Import Failed". Which in turn led to my database being left completely and entirely borked beyond repair. To the point of a clean install of WP. You shouldn't have to hack .htaccess or wp-config for a plugin to work properly and you don't expect to have to manually reinstall WordPress after it breaking everything. This plugin does not work on all hosts. Their support tried and clearly wanted to help but I simply can't recommend this plugin.

Great plugin

very useful plugin. I was struggling for migration from FTP. this plugin is so simple and fast. great work guys

Amazing work by the Developers and a Great Piece of Software 🙂

I must say that the plugin works really great and the developers have done a really good job. I have used few plugins before for migrating my WordPress sites and they used to work fine. But recently one of the plugins which I most frequently used started crashing my website. When I started looking for alternatives I found this. This is a really simple plugin to use and does the job with the utmost efficiency and ease. The features you are getting are top notch and are of premium quality. People are charging upwards of 40$ for the same work. But this plugin is free. I really have no words to express my gratitude. Keep up the good work guys. Regards. Vishi Naik from India.

Only migration plugin that worked for me

I tried XCloner a couple different ways as well as manual migration (I know what I'm doing here, folks, I've done many manual migrations and migrations with XCloner) and could not get a client site from Media Temple over to 1&1 for anything. Best case scenario was it transferred most content but not the db, and took hours of manual editing of core files that somehow got messed up to get it remotely working. I don't know how much of the problem was Media Temple's deliberate obfuscation and blocking of PHP functions and terminal commands, and how much was just the combo of Elementor, WooCommerce, multiple redundant plugins from the previous developer, and a ton of content. I just know this plugin is the only one that worked. The export file was large, so I had to use the Add From Server plugin to get it loaded into the library, but from there the migration was easy.
