Migration Guides


WordPress Salts

Migrating a WordPress backup will likely replace your WordPress Salts. This is normal. When this happens you’ll be logged out and you may need to reset your WordPress user account passwords.

Migrating a Large Site

Migrating a large site is possible. Depending on which plugin you’re using it might include features to import from Dropbox, an external URL, or a simple upload and more.
