I have been moving around 40k posts from one site to another (different domains), using wp cli, all went well, but it seems the featured image weren't imported.

I have now uploaded all media files using wp cli and they seem to have the same ID's in the database, as the previous website.

In the postmeta table, _thumbnail_id already have the correct value, but the featured images show up blank. What should I do?

    Add e.g. a featured image (manually via the UI) to a single post, that should already have one and compare all the related database fields (before/after comparison). Also check the error logs on server and console errors. – birgire Feb 5 '18 at 11:13
  • that sounds exhausting, why not use updraft?? – Cam Feb 5 '18 at 21:17
  • @birgire: I will try that and report. – Mohit Feb 6 '18 at 12:17
  • @Cam: Already been done, cannot go back. Took days to import everything. Exhausting and frustrating indeed. – Mohit Feb 6 '18 at 12:18
