Support » Plugin: WordPress Migration & Duplicator » Just perfect. Crushes the big boys completely.

  • USE *THIS* PLUGIN.

    Tested the usual suspects on a project where I had to move five individual sites to a new hosting service. The websites were all hovering just above the 500MB limit, that Duplicator, All-in-one, Updraft and similar struggle with. Wasted 4 hours trying to move the first site and failed with the usual plugins.

    Then I found this nifty plugin. Within 1 hour and 12 minutes I had moved all five websites- No trouble AND instead of a 400-500 MB download file per site AND failing to move the sites, this plugin compresses where no one else can (65-120 MB instead of the others af 0.5GB) and just does it job.

    Thank you. Really.

  • hi, I had same problem moving my site with 600mb of size, I have used the same Plugin, but to my surprise after moving the site, it says “WordPress imported successfully ” and NOTHING happens there after . Please is there anything im missing ? your reply will be so much appreciated.

    Hi there, @lawrencekells. Basically, the workflow consists of three phases:

    1. Backup the origin site, which yields a download file automatically. My ~600 MB sites compressed to 65-120MB with this plugin.
    2. Install a blank/staging site. Site title, user and password can all be “test” or similar, if you have an auto-installer. Just get a blank in there. Login, install the plugin, activate and import the file via the plugin, which makes the backup zip go into the new/destination site’s media library. Select the uploaded file and execute.
    3. You should now be automatically logged out, since the staging site is no longer the same site anymore. Update your DNS (change IP at Cloudflare or similar), so as to make your new site accessible and respond to your usual login page and credentials.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks a lot!

    1. Backup the origin site, which yields a download file automatically. My ~600 MB sites compressed to 65-120MB with this plugin.
    {My site is 2gb compressed to 640MB with this plugin}

    2. Install the plugin, activate and import the file via the plugin, which makes the backup zip go into the new/destination site’s media library. Select the uploaded file and execute. { I think this is where my bug is coming from, I could not get the 640Mb file to upload, so i had uploaded a smaller zip file to bypass the upload limit, and then replaced the smaller file with the my actual backup zip file after which i was able to select it } and even after it says successfully imported, nothing was done.

    so i never got to stage 3. 🙁
