- Create a Backup: Once activated, you’ll find the plugin under ‘All-in-One WP Migration’ in your dashboard menu. Click on ‘Export’ and then ‘Export To > File’. The plugin will create a .wpress file containing all your website data.
- Download the Backup: After the file is ready, click on ‘Download’ to save it to your computer. Keep this file in a safe and accessible location.
Remember, it’s recommended to make regular backups, especially before making significant changes to your website.
Restoring Your Website from a .wpress File
Now that you have a .wpress file, here are the steps to restore your website:
- Install the Plugin: If it’s not already installed, add the All-in-One WP Migration plugin to your WordPress website.
- Upload the Backup: Go to ‘All-in-One WP Migration > Import’ on your dashboard. Click on ‘Import From > File’ and select your .wpress file.
- Let the Plugin Do Its Magic: The plugin will upload the file and restore your website to the state it was in when the backup was created.
Common Mistakes to Avoid
While the process is straightforward, there are a few common mistakes to avoid:
- Not Verifying the Backup File: Always ensure that the backup file is not corrupted and contains all the necessary data before using it for restoration.
- Ignoring Compatibility Issues: Check that the All-in-One WP Migration plugin version is compatible with your WordPress version to avoid any conflicts.
- Overlooking Storage Space: Ensure your hosting server has enough space to accommodate the backup file. If the file is too large, you may need to increase your server’s storage capacity.
That’s it! Your backed up WordPress site has now been restored. Be sure to update any credentials or configurations as needed. All-in-One WP Migration makes the process painless
