Migrating WordPress can be quite a hassle. One tool that I’ve been relying on when migrating websites is WP Migrate DB. This plugin makes migrating your WordPress databases very seamless since it has a great search and replace function which takes into consideration any domains and paths which will be different in new hosting locations. I develop all my sites in my own staging environment so when it’s time to push the sites to production this tool comes in handy.
