Migrating site to development machine

Recommended Posts

rafaeldesilva

Hello, I'm trying to migrate all my production site to a development server and I did this process: 1. Export BD from remote server and replace all occurences of "http://productionserver" with "http://developmentserver" 2. Tranfer all files via FTP, being aware of changes in .htaccess and wp-config.php 3. Export PlatofrmPro settings in production server and import them in development machine So far everything is right EXCEPT than paths to banners and icons in PlatformPro settings are pointing to production server and I want them to point to development server, if I edit manually de "PageLines-PlatformPro-Settings-20110912.dat" to change these url's the import fails. What can I do to accomplish this? (other than editing all settings manually) Thank you

I've bumped this question to a developer because it's more of a complex technical issue than I could handle and one that involves considerably more than PlatformPro. Please be patient as one of our developers looks into the matter.

The dat file is serialised data, you cannot just edit it. There are several search and replace tools, ere is one: http://interconnectit.com/124/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/

That search&replace utility didn't work, it produced the same effect as editing the dat file manually, i.e., reset PlatformPro settings. I also tryed to exec an UPDATE & REPLACE over wp_options table and the effect was the same... This other approach didn't work either: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3277736/updating-serialised-array-in-mysql-without-unserialising I'll keep investingating on this serialized columns thing, if anyone knows the solution I'll appreciate a help Thank you

There is another solution....but it will cost you $75. It's called "BackupBuddy" and I use it all the time. This little gem will backup, restore, migrate in less that 2 minutes. The neat thing about the plugin, is that once you are through using it on a site you can detach the license and use it on another site. This plugin has paid for itself 10x over for me. http://ithemes.com/member/signup.php?price_group=51&product_id=111
