Support » Plugin: WordPress Move » Migaration tool indicates success, but site doesn't change

  • Resolved BlakeCram



    On the original site the backup works great, files are moved using the migration tool, no ftp errors.

    On the new site the backup files are present, the migration tool successfully unzips all files, database indicates success, no errors, but the site doesn’t change.

    I have used WordPress Move successfully dozens of times, no errors. The only difference this time is that I had to use a different database name on the new site (due to a file name length limit. Is that why it’s failing? Wouldn’t that throw an error?

    From the look of the code, it doesn’t seem like the name of the database matters, but the table prefix does. Make sure you are using the same table prefix, otherwise you get “migration success”, but no content change. You can change the table prefix in

    Life saver Olivier! Sure enough I found duplicates in the new DB with the old table prefix. Did the restore with the correct prefix and voilĂ  there’s my site. Thanks!
