Support » Plugin: Microsoft Azure Storage for WordPress » Feature request/question for installing on an existing site

  • I’m adding this plugin to a pre-existing site. It’s easy enough to install the plugin, and new media uploads are routed to the Azure storage account, as they should be. (Which, by the way, thank you for the plugin.)

    What is the best approach for taking the existing contents of the uploads directory and “migrating” them to Azure? It’s easy enough to download the files, then re-upload them to Azure using a tool like Azure Storage Explorer, and then run a database search/replace on URIs like //oldsite/wp-content/uploads/. But that feels inelegant, at best.

    As a related feature request, I would love for the plugin to handle part or all of this itself – iterating through the existing media library, uploading them to Azure, rewriting the existing attributes, and (optionally?) deleting the “local” uploads when they’re no longer needed.
