Support » Plugin: All-in-One WP Migration » Source and Target Domain not the same after migration

  • Resolved rw102016


    Hello Support,

    my source and target Domain is not the same after migration.
    I found out, that the migration tool is only overwriting the plug-ins that it has in it´s backup file wpress, but it is not deleting the existing plug-ins on the target Domain, right?
    It seams that all my already installed Plug-ins on the target Domain are still existing, but inactive, right?
    This is because the status of each plug-in is stored in the database and the database were (totaly???) overwritten from the wpress file?
    Where can I found the status of the plug-in in the database?

    So if the target domain is not a brand new installed WP, than the target Domain and their content are not equal with the source Domain, right?

    So what else is not equal?
    – What about other files and folders?
    – What about config and htaccess files?
    – What about images?
    – What about the Database?
    Is the database totally overwritten with the wpress file, or is the wpress file appending new rows in the tables?
    – …

    Is anywhere an more detailed Manuel?

    Best regards,

    Hi Rene,

    Yes, you understand correctly about importing into an existing WordPress site.
    Only the database will be overwritten.

    If you would like both sites to be exactly the same, you will have to import into a fresh WordPress install.
