Transfering wordpress website from one domain to another domain
Step 1: Install the below plug-ins in both the domains,
- Backupwordpress and
- wp migrate db
Step 2: WordPress site Dashboard -> Tools -> wp migrate db and note the below details of your both old website and new website.
Current file path
Step 3: Take the backup of your wordpress site and databases (database for safety) using backupwordpress plug in or cpanel backup wizard option.
Step 4: Go to Old website Tools -> Wp migate db and enter the current file path and current address of new website to update the domain names.
Download this as zip.
Step 5: Open the wp-config file which is under public_html folder of downloaded backup of your old website.
And update the db name, db user, db password of your new website.
Step 6: Upload the old website downloaded files to your new website using filezilla.
Note: Do not upload the .htaccess file, since it is having the references of the old websites. Remove the lines between #begin wordpress and #end wordpress and upload. It will write the contents automatically sometime.
Step 7: Open the phpmyadmin of your new website and go to the database(which you have mentioned in the old website wp-config) and import the .gz file which is downloaded with the help of wp migrate db.
Open the website , I hope it will open without any issues. If you face any problems please reply to this post, I will reply to your queries.
