Questions about migration process to another host
I have an account at the new host and wordpress installed. I have the database exported from my old host and ready to import to the new one.
My question is what is the order for moving everything over? What’s first, the database or all the wp_ files? Or the theme?
I’ve tried following several tutorials but I get all sorts of problems. I think I’ve complicated things by using the Better WP Security plugin to rename the content directory and database prefixes, which also modifies the wp_config file.
So should I install Better WP Security first and configure it the same way before importing the database and replacing the wp_ files? That won’t work with the database tables because it names them randomly and they won’t match.
I feel way in over my head right now. I’ve waded into a complicated mess that keeps getting more complicated.
