How to Easily Migrate WordPress Sites with All in One WP Migration
Hello and welcome to the WordPress plugin guide for All in One WP Migration, which is a unique tool for importing and exporting your entire WordPress website from one site to another.
Step 1) On the Dashboard of your website, scroll down the left-hand sidebar and click on ‘Plugins’
Step 2) From the ‘Installed Plugins’ page, click on ‘Add New’ at the top of the page. Alternatively, click on ‘Add New’ from the dropdown menu under ‘Plugins’ on the sidebar.
Step 3) On the ‘Add Plugins’ page, type in the name of your plugin in the search box on the right hand side, at the top of the page.
Step 4) From the ‘Search Results’ page, scroll down to your chosen plugin and click the button marked ‘Install Now’. If you would like to learn more about your plugin, click the blue link marked ‘More Details’
Step 5) The plugin is now installed and unpacked into your website. The last thing to do now is click ‘Activate Plugin’
Step 6) Once activated, you will be redirected to the ‘Installed Plugins’ page. From here, you can read all the info about your plugins, and deactivate and delete it if you no longer need it.
Step 7) To export your WordPress site, head to ‘Site Migration’ on your Dashboard, and choose ‘Export’ from the dropdown menu. At the top of the page you can report any issues, and on the right-hand side, there are hints and tips on how to export your site. You can also leave feedback for you plugin creators.
On the exportation side of things, you can submit a find and replace to make any last minute changes to your database before you export it. There is an example below, but click on the ‘Add another’ button if there are more changes you’d like to make, before hitting the ‘Export’ button.
Step 8) Click on the blue link marked ‘Advanced Options’. This will expand extra options for you, which consist of leaving out sections of your database before you download it. This is a good way of clearing out any dead wood, including spam comments, post revisions, media libaries, themes and plugins. Tick the boxes of the files you want to exclude and then click ‘Export’
Step 9) At the other end (or if this is your new site), you can head to Site Migration >> Import to import a file which has your entire WordPress site on it to your new site. You can use the drag and drop feature for this, or select a file by hitting the button underneath. The max upload file is 512MB, but if you click on the green link marked ‘Get Unlimited’, you can pay $49 and get unlimited file space, which is a good purchase for larger websites. If you have any issues with importing, use the ‘Report Issue’ button at the top-right corner of the page.
