Learn how to move a WordPress site from one location to another by duplicating and resetting your database.
- [Joe] Migrating a WordPress website, whether you're changing domains or moving between hosts, should be a painless process. As your WordPress website outgrows your current hosting, you may find frustrations, the slow site or limited resources. I'll teach you all of the basic technologies for moving sites, what needs to change in WordPress for your transition to be successful, and the great tools that make migration a breeze. I'll introduce FTP, the command line and MySQL. Then dive into great tools for relocating WordPress sites like Duplicator, WP Migrate to DB Pro and Migrate Guru.
