SiteGround Migrator

Beskrivelse

SiteGround Migrator: the easiest way to move your site to SiteGround

This plugin is designed to automate the transfer of a WordPress instance to a SiteGround hosting account. It can’t be used to transfer a WordPress instance to another hosting provider.

Important: This solution is not suitable for migrating localhost WordPress sites or for Full Multisite installations (separate Multisite blogs are fine).

How to Use

First, you need to get a transfer token from your SiteGround account. You can do this through the WordPress Migrator tool located in the WordPress section of your SiteGround hosting control panel.

Once you select the domain name that you want to initiate the transfer for, our system will generate a transfer token for you.Paste the token in your SiteGround Migrator plugin and press Initiate Transfer. That’s all!

Skjermskudd

  • Starting the transfer - paste your Migration Token and select notification email if you want
  • If domains are different, the plugin will inform you about the changes we will make
  • Downloading your site files to the SiteGround server
  • Once data migration is completed, we will set your site on the new server, even change its url if necessary
  • Migration completed! We've generated a temporary URL for you to verify your site on the new server

FAQ

Does it work with Localhost environments?

We download your site content directly on the SiteGround server, that’s why we can’t access your content if it’s hosted on a local environment.

Does it work with WordPress.com?

No, the plugin is designed to migrate from stand-alone WordPress installations. If you want to migrate from WordPress.com, please check the Guided Transfer service they offer.

Does it work with Multisite?

Due to the complexity of MS sites we don’t migrate full MS networks at this point. However, separate blogs from a MS network can be migrated successfully.

What content is migrated?

We move only your WordPress content – themes, plugins, uploads. If you have other applications or content outside WordPress it will not be migrated

Does it work only with cPanel hosts?

No, we strive to make our plugin work flawlessly on every hosting environment.

Transfer is completed but I didn’t get a notification?

The plugin uses your current site admin email to notify you that the transfer is completed. If it fails to send emails you may not receive one upon completion.

I am getting transfer errors, now what?

Unfortunately, our plugin works on environments that we have no control over. That’s why it can fail or some hosts. In such cases, please contact our support team via a ticket in your Help Desk and we will assist you further!

I really wanted this to work as simply as the Siteground website makes it sound. Tried this twice. Took about 13 hours and completed but the migrated website didn't work. Same error both times. Was coming from Ionos but I don't think the origin was a problem. I did contact support and credit to SiteGround GoGeek support they are fast, they suggested I copy the entire Avada theme directory over by FTP. I didn't particularly want to get involved in that and I had no confidence it would work. Also no confidence that I wouldn't break the live site in the process. I decided to leave the website where it is. My main reason for wanting to change hosting was that Plesk on Ionos is unintuitive and flakey but it makes little sense to move to another host whose tools also don't work. SiteGround does have hassle free self service hosting cancellation though so I did that and got a refund.

Transfer was smooth and easy as possible. Create new WordPress install on SiteGround. Download and install plugin on site you want to transfer and activate the plugin. Obtain the free token from your SiteGround account and then it does all the work for you, including the option to update your site's domain name if you need or want to. Database update is all done by the plugin. Absolute beginners who are not familiar with installing and activating plugins may need some assistance.

Works like a charm after several websites moved. I had problems with siteground 4-5 years ago, but I tell you it's a much different and better experience now overall.
