Moving Wordpress site from another hosting provider

wordpress

#1

Hi,

I’d like to get some feedback from people who have successfully migrated their WP site from another hosting provider to Dreamhost.

I don’t feel quite comfortable doing a manual migration, so I’m looking for an automated tool. The only reliable ones seem to be Duplicator which is free, and BackupBuddy which costs $80.

For anyone who has done a successful migration from another host, what method did you use?

Hi. You’re right. The Duplicator plugin is actually the one used by Dreamhost as shown in the Wiki site. Check below.

I used Duplicator, it’s OK, but for me the best way to migrate WP is to do it manualy.

DesktopServer also works nicely :slight_smile:

I’m a manual person myself, though. But then again, I’ve been at this a while.
