Just popped in to say thanks to the guys at Life in the Grid for their awesome WordPress plugin, Duplicator.
I had to switch to another host as my previous one, 8Tar, was crumbling down to the ground. (I guess that’s what you get for $0…) I installed the Duplicator plugin and created a backup in seconds. The next day 8Tar exhaled its final breath. After finding a new host (paid this time) I uploaded the backup I created and activated it. It just worked. Everything was restored in one go: database and files (posts, images, plugins, permalinks, users) – the whole package.
When thanks are due…
A friend sent me this plugin months ago. I was a little apprehensive to use it at first, since I didn’t know what could go wrong if I did. But when I tried it, I kept wondering why I kept using the Import/Export functions and manually ported websites before. I sure wish I found this plugin at the time that I had to port at least 11 websites from one server to the other. xD
Great post! 🙂
