    I get the same thing. I’ve been using this plugin for about a year on and off and I’d say for about 50% of sites it works fine, but for the other 50% I end up doing a manual migration because it won’t export the database or half of the files are missing from the export.



    Me 2. I just need to migrate two sites but both seems missing a lot of directories and files. Really need to have a solution because this plugin is so great and easy to use. I can’t find any better.



    I now do it manually every time:
    1. install a fresh copy of wordpress at destination
    2. copy wp-contents to override the folder that comes with the fresh install
    3. dump the whole DB into the new one (dropping all tables of the fresh install first)
    4. use a script to safely replace all DB entries containing the Site URL from the former to the new one
    5. update permalinks

    after many tries, I feel that this is the simplest / what works the best and most consistently for me. I wish a plugin could do all these steps for me, but I can’t rely on a plugin that works only part of the time.


    Having the same issue. It has worked flawlessly on a previous site, but the current one I am trying to migrate (which is a copy of the last one I migrated) and it won’t bring any pages/posts/custom posts/themes/uploads over and only brings about half of the plugins. I have tried to re-run the migration a dozen times and they are all flawed.
