Moving WordPress to Ubuntu, easiest way?

  • Posted August 29, 2013


I already read the article “How to Migrate WordPress from Shared Hosting to a Cloud Server with Zero Downtime”. Thanks for it.

However, is this the best way to do this? Because I see that we can install it by clicking on Wordpress on Ubuntu 12.10 via Applications. Can we upload WP db and the other things after doing this?

Thanks in advance,

Hello there,

Yes, you can do that, but usually, if you’re going to migrate the content manually you will move the files and the database altogether.

You can use the WP All in One plugin or Duplicator to migrate all of your WordPress websites as well.

If you have to move some of the data manually you can do that via ssh using scp or rsync. Another option is to use an FTP client like FileZilla

Hope that this helps!

<b>“Can we upload WP db and the other things after doing this?”</b> <br> <br>Yes, that’s (almost) exactly how the article you referenced suggests you do it. Also, you may want to check out the WordPress <a href=“” target=“_blank”>Duplicator</a> plugin.
