Website Pro Allow migrating / importing existing websites via full export (files and database)
PLEASE support migrating/importing existing WordPress installations. The main benefit is ensuring data is not lost, relationships stay the same (e.g. media attached to posts), and that the Post IDs remain the same (support for links like /?p=1234 so they don't break).
Not all of these are not possible via All-in-One WP Migration (the only supported import option at this time to my knowledge) - and even when using WordPress' own export/import tool, if a custom post type that got exported is not yet enabled on the new site (e.g. plugin is not active that enables that post type) then that part of the export does not import.
Duplicator ( https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/) and other plugins like it are ubiquitous.
Local Flywheel ( https://localwp.com/) and Installatron (available for use in cPanel - https://installatron.com/wordpress) can easily import such a zip export (files and database in one) or the hosting at least allows following Duplicator's own PHP install script (WebsitePro's hosting does not support this method).
GoDaddy has their own import where you just enter the admin's username/password to bring over the existing site: https://www.godaddy.com/help/move-my-wordpress-site-automatically-8997
PLEASE make this your absolute next thing to work on. If you can do imports on your end, then at least make the migrations free.
Hi Clifford! While we do recommend it, you don't need to use the All-in-One plugin! There's a little more detail in our Troubleshooting page for Website Pro, but suffice to say you should be good to go with another plugin.
