  • Hey guys,

    was just wondering what would be the steps to take(if its actually possible) to migrate a wp account to another account?

    I was working on a site on a dummy account and almost completed it, however I need to transfer ownership to the person I’m helping make it for.

    Is it actually possible to ‘pass’ the site to the other person?

    The other person has a website for himself but wants to replace his current site with the one I made for him.

    Any comments and help would be greatly appreciated 🙂

  • Sure, you can create a new admin user for the new owner, then remove the old one and assign all posts etc to new owner user.

    Next download all site files and a grab a full backup of the database.

    Once you have that done, transfer to him directly these files or have him allow you to create the site at his webhost.

    thanks so much!
