Steps to move a WordPress site from one server to another?
Posted on 2013-11-20
I need to move a WordPress site.
I am assuming I can just use phpMyAdmin to export the MYSQL tables to a .sql file, then move the .sql file and import it into the new database.
And then of course I would point the domain name to the correct nameservers, and install WordPress.
However, I am not sure of the order in which I should complete these steps.
Should I move the MYSQL tables first? Or will the WordPress installation overwrite the tables anyway?
I am think steps should be:
1) point domain to correct nameservers
2) set up new WordPress installation
3) move over MYSQL tables
May I have your advice, please?
Thank you for your help.
