Transferring a WordPress Site

If you are needing to transfer an entire WordPress site (entire meaning EVERYTHING) than here is the plugin you need!

  2. Install it, activate it.
  3. Go and make a backup/transfer of your entire site
  4. Upload the 2 files it creates, installer.php and the backup zip file to your new site
  5. Go to your new site and run the installer.php script
  6. Done.

I have ran this many time on moving a site from development to production, changing servers (including new domains) and it works 100% well.  It will even, if you are changing domain, go thru and update all links and such.
