What are good practices / best plugins / your personal approach for Migrations?
No matter the plugin, always always when I migrate a Wordpress website something goes wrong. Either links not working, pages not displaying, plugins not installed, forms built with plugins not imported, it never happened to me to have a smooth and flawless transition.
What is a good approach for it? I would like to know if I am doing something wrong or I am missing pieces.
I personally use:
- All-in-One WP migrate => I compile the package and then I import it in the new website
- Since this plugin misses some pieces here and there, I also do a query to substitute the GUID of the pages with the new website migrated
- General Theme files. Some images are not displaying, I wonder if I need to fix some links as well in the DB.
I thanks you in advance for all the suggestions and /or tutorial you can advice.
