Recently, i ran into issue of WordPress site not getting properly deployed. My normal method of deployment for the site is:
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 formla and call it 99% of the time the above method works. Here is the 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 best part, its FREE plugin.
