WordPress Move 1.1

As you might have noticed, I released a new version of WordPress Move yesterday. Some cool features like migrating and changing the domain name at the same time, creating a backup of your WordPress installation using the Backup Manager are added with this release. Let me explain what these mean:

The initial release was not supporting changing the domain name and migrating at the same time so you had to point both your old domain and new domain to the new server you are migrating to, after the migration. With 1.1, you can now define the domain name you want to use on the server you are migrating to which dramatically reduces the amount of time you’ll spend for the migration. Note that this doesn’t make any changes on the actual database so you can keep using both installations just fine after the migration.

You can also now create a backup of your website that you can use to revert at any time and since the backup covers both your database and files, you don’t need to worry about breaking your website as long as your backup files are safe. In the upcoming release, I will make it possible to transfer a manually created backup file to the server you want to migrate to. That way, you will be able to migrate a former version of your website too.

These are the changes I have made so far. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I want to turn this into a full-fledged migration tool and I promise it will always be free.

You can follow WordPress Move on GitHub or download from WordPress Plugin Directory.
