We explain and demonstrate how to manually migrate a WordPress website from one hosting company to a different one.
It is a pretty easy process if you can understand at a high level you need to:
- backup the database on the original host
- backup the loose WordPress files on the original host
- on the new host, create new empty WordPress site
- Copy the loose WordPress copes from the old host overtop of the files on the new hosts empty WordPress site
- Restore the old WordPress database from the old host to the new hosts empty WordPress site
