Attack of the clones
🎃 Moving a large WordPress website from one host to another.

In this series, Lee looks at a range of WordPress tools that can add value to both the development process and client interactions. For each episode, Lee will define a problem, discuss his agency’s solution, and share a use case.

The problem

Moving a large WordPress website to a new host can be tricky. A large database can time out during restoration, transferring files can take hours, and updating database tables to reflect the new changes can easily go wrong.

The solution

We using Duplicator Pro to create an installable package that we can easily transfer to another host, run the included PHP script, fill in the prompts, then sit back and relax whilst scripts do the hard work1

Use cases

  • Handing off a website to a new developer/agency.
  • Scheduling regular backups of a site to a cloud server.
