Migrating Your WordPress Site to Us

If you already have a working WordPress site that you wish to move to eQPress, the first thing you need to do is sign up with Deflect and specify that you would like to move your existing website to eQPress, providing us with the first and last name of your admin (they don’t have to be the official ones!). It would be also helpful to know if your WordPress instance contains a single website or is a multi-site with subdomains (http://sub.example.com) or subdirectories (http://example.com/sub).

This post contains information for migrating your website to eQPress. If you need any help, don’t hesitate to ask for our support.

What we need:

  1. A database dump of your existing WordPress site. You may need to request this from your existing hosting provider if you do not have the facilities to make a database dump yourself, or you can follow these instructions.
  2. The complete backup of your existing WordPress site files, which you can easily obtain by following this guide.

If you want, you can use a plugin to obtain your database dump and website backup. There are many such plugins for WordPress, and you can pick the one you prefer from this list.
