Support » Plugin: Duplicator - WordPress Migration Plugin » Absolutely excellent except for something you cannot fix…user error

  • Elyod


    I have so far used this for the first time 4 days ago, migrating one site per day. First was flawless as were #3 and #4.

    What happened to #2 was all me. I guess I was overly anxious to get it going that I did not get the full download of the “zip” file. So when I went to install it, boom, it didn’t work.

    I had built the files several times and kept the latest as it was after a WP update with several Plugins. I had already unassigned and moved the domain name and I didn’t want to re-assign everything. I looked in the original folders, which I had backed up first via FTP. Found the original ones I did and one of them worked (with the correct installer.exe file. It only required me to run the WP and Plugin updates and all was well.

    Warning to you from me: Make sure the file is completed downloaded and you should have no problems. The last seconds, even though Chrome said it was at 100%, was not. That is where I made my mistake.

    I have four more sites to move to Bluehost which I highly recommend as a great host.
