Want to move a wordpress site to a new domain. So far I have downloaded the existing site files and exported the .sql database.

I have a fresh install of Wordpress on the new domain, can anyone explain the next steps in what order for moving the site across please? I have tried a few things but the database import is failing via phpMyAdmin

You should be more specific. What kind of error do you get in phpMyAdmin. If you have a smaller site give Duplicator plugin a shot. It simplifies the migration process and might save you time.

  • One more thing when you run the installer, under advanced options mark "deep link checking (slower)", just to make sure all file paths are fixed. Glad I could help. Commented Jan 11, 2017 at 13:11
