[Resolved] [Plugin: WordPress Move] So many files when do a Full backup
Hi, I did a full backup and in the Current Backups, 8 backup zip files appeared, and 1 database file.
They are all in different sizes, and I can’t tell what is what since the type all stated “Filesystem Backup”.
So I guess one is all the plugins, one is root, one is content and so on… But how can I tell from their names?
My 2nd question is, how can I make a backup that is ready for moving to another server and domain without actually moving it, so the ready backup file is stored in a folder on the same server and I can do the download, upload, restore process manually later.
I thought the “Change Domain Name” under Migration Assistant is for such purpose but I didn’t realize that it will immediately change all the instances in the database in the live site and it actually turn my site down, I had to do a manual restore. I personally think in the “Do not forget” part,
Your files and database will not be transferred to another server.
was not very clear.
Anyways, it’s a great plugin and thanks for all the hard work developing it, just want to understand it more clearly and I hope it will become more straight forward for more people.
