Video: Daniel Kanchev – WordPress Migrations Done Right | #WCEU 2014

In theory transferring a WordPress website should be a straightforward process that involves few well-defined steps like: exporting your database from the old place, importing it on the new one, moving your files, reconfiguring WordPress and changing the DNS records. In reality the migration process of an active website has some challenges that, if not addressed properly, may result in downtime and data loss. Needless to say this could affect your business badly – revenue stream loss and bad reputation being just some of the implications.

In this talk Daniel Kanchev presents to the audience the different steps in the migration process and gives examples how each step can be optimised so that the risks of data loss and downtime are minimised.
