How to easily export and import WordPress Sites?

Recently, I ran into issue of WordPress site not getting properly deployed. My normal method of deployment for the site was:

a. Backup the files
b. Backup the database file
c. Goto the cPanel deploy the files
d. Change few settings in database SQL file for the urls
e. Create database on to the new server and deploy the database file

This method use to work almost all the time for me, i would rate it 100%, but not until today, where i will place a minus 1 to this formula and call it 99%.

Here is my new way:

I came across a plugin from servmask called as “All in One WP Migration plugin”. This is a perfect and time-saving solution and the best part, its FREE. This plugin exports your WordPress website including the database, media files, plugins and themes with no technical knowledge required. Upload your site to a different location with a drag and drop into WordPress. Watch the video below to fully understand the process:

The plugin does not have any dependencies, making it compatible with all PHP hosting providers. We support a vast range of hosting providers. Some of the most popular include: Bluehost, InMotion, Web Hosting Hub, Siteground, Pagely, Dreamhost, Justhost, GoDaddy, WP Engine, Site5, 1&1, Pantheon.


If you feel, this plugin could be helpful to your friend, share with them as “Sharing is Caring”.
