As a long time WordPress user, I've used a LOT of plugins. I can't think of a plugin that handles the Freemium model better than Migrate DB / Pro.
In the free version, they may it relatively easy for you to download a copy of your site to set up on your local machine (or on a 3rd party host, I suppose). But, with the pro version, it's nearly a 1-click pull from live down to local.
I appreciate the time savings so much, I'm happy to pay for the pro version.
As long as I'm using WordPress, I'll be using Migrate DB (pro)!
Does an awsome job when you need to transfer your site from local environment to live server.
I can't believe I've never before reviewed WP Migrate DB! I've been using it for years, and it's saved me many many hours of time. I switched to WP Migrate DB Pro about 18 months ago, as I'm supporting over 40 sites, and it gives me an even more streamlined workflow. It's one of the four plugins that I install immediately whenever I set up a new site. Their code is rock solid, and support is great.
I do a lot of WordPress development using Xampp on my PC. Lately, BackupBuddy has been giving me fits and refusing to migrate the database ... and I've fussed for hours trying to sort that out in phpMyAdmin. GAH!!!!!
This morning, when I was confronting the same issue on a new development, I started casting around for a solution. I kissed a couple frogs before I found and tried this plugin.
The software does exactly what it claims and it is a breeze to use. If the table prefixes have changed, all you have to do is modify wp-config.php and you're done.
Thanks for writing this plugin. I will keep it on tap for future projects.
Perfect for transfers between staging and live servers.
Had to migrate my site and this really did the job well. Highly recommend it.
I use this to deploy and backup all my sites ... great tool.
This is what I call smooth and seamless! Im sure I would be buying the Pro version.
Been using wordpress for a couple of years now, and had many issues last times uploading my local site so i was quite "unhopeful" this would work.
Migrated my site from http://www.inazio.net to http://www.izstudio.net and had no issues at all. Amazing!
PS remember to make the two changes in your wp.config.php
Simple to use, works perfectly, really wish I'd found this plugin earlier! Thanks!
