Support » Plugin: SiteGround Migrator » Plugin doesn’t work

  • Installed on my live site and came back with ““Transfer Failed Due To Database Error!”

    The website is very small and there is no database error. Reading thru other support requests it would seem that I *might* need to increase the “max_execution_time”. But guess what – that’s not possible on a lot of shared hosting!

    Plus if you’re migrating from a live site, then you need a temp domain on the Siteground site. But that no longer comes as standard since Siteground moved away from cPanel.

    So, all-in-all, the plugin is of little use and I migrated it all by hand. But lucky I know what I’m doing.

    The fact the the plugin fails to transfer a dump of your database means that most probably something on the old host is blocking this process.

    In addition to that, you don’t need cPanel’s temporary URL since you can now create your site with real, unique temporary URL for new accounts using Site Tools.

    I am glad that you’ve finally managed to move to us. If you experience issues, let our tech team know, they will happily help you further.
