I require help in migrating from GoDaddy to WPEngine

Recommended Posts


Site URL: http://thelocalfilmnetwork.com

Host: GoDaddy

Hi Pagelines team and community,


I am going to be attempting to do a full migration from GoDaddy to WPEngine. 

I need to know, will I lose the front-end customisations I have made?

Also are there any backups or things I need to do to ensure that I do not lose any important info relating to the site?

Kind regards,

Hi Dan, im sure WPE have a site migration tool?

Your settings are all in the database, everything should be fine.

Just make a full backup on godaddy before you start.

Nice one.

Thank you for your prompt response, I have a few other questions regarding Platform 5 and some other stuff, so will post those in a new thread.

      Hi Pagelines Team,
      I am interested in setting up a bbPress forum on my website.
      Unfortunately, I have never set up a child theme for my site and have been just using the drag and drop system to put together my site on the main theme. If I am to install the child theme, and activate it, what do I stand to lose in terms of design and current configuration settings on the backend?
      Thank you for taking this time to read this.
      Kind regards,

      Hi All
      I have just migrated my theme from a perfectly functioning local version to my server and it looks corrupted.  I have followed the standard migration (Replace WP Content, Upload Database, Search & Replace URLs)
      Things I have tried to rectify the problem:-
      Changed Permalinks, deleted .htaccess file Deactivated Plugins Removed all custom CSS But It all still seems to have the same problem the url for the website is as follows: www.blueanchor-reigate.co.uk
