This is pretty much what I use for every WordPress migration when pushing from Dev to Live, or vice-versa. The only time I've ever had a problem was when the issue turned out to be my own fault. My only gripe is that I don't have more stars to give.
I've been using this plugin Free then moved to Pro without a single regret. All my migrations run smoothly and fast with the PULL/PUSH options. One thing missing: option to copy wp-content (themes/plugins/translations) from one server to another.
Simple et efficace, j'aime ;)
I used to just dump WP databases and search/replace for URLs when migrating from a local server to a production server but I was finding that due to string lengths being stored as well (I didn't know this previously) certain themes would reset all their settings on migration, links would occasionally fail etc. Presumably this is some sort of security/corruption rebuild. Anyway, this plugin cuts out all the tedious work and does everything perfectly. Completely mirrored database with updated URLs! I will definitely be purchasing Pro, if not only to say thanks for saving me so much time and hassle. Very well designed plugin indeed.
Great tool for migrating sites.
Great work guys!!
This plugin has bailed me out several times.
Will buy dev license shortly.
Makes moving wordpress to another server a breeze. I am very happy this plugin exists
