Great writeup, for sure. I don't have direct access to the content folder in the VM. I was looking for another option to port it out somehow.

You'll have to go the plugin route I talk about at the end of the article, then.

I've used this plugin with my Wordpress on a VM based on Bitnami 4 or 5 times.   It's very easy and everything is moved in minutes.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-wp-migration/

Install the plugin,   export the site.

Install the plugin in the new site location, import the site.

I don't think the process can be more simplified than this.

I downloaded the plugin and exported my site without adding any link changes after -- reading this: Since version 1.8.0, Site URL is deprecated. Upon import, the plugin auto-detects Site URL and makes necessary changes to the database.

Import went well, except now when I log in to new site it redirects to the 127.0.0.1 address. How can I proceed from here?

Did you need to add the URL changes with your Bitnami migrations?

Ok I inserted this
update_option('siteurl','http://example.com');
update_option('home','http://example.com');

Open in new window

into my functions.php so I have the CP back again. So maybe I'll try the export with the URL change, see if that does the trick.

I re exported, switching old and new URL's. Seems to have ported over nicely.

Looks like the trick is to keep it under 128 megs, per the cap limit of the plugin.
