  3. Worst explanation… if your going to do a turtorial don’t censor anything

  4. Great tutorial! very well explained, I could follow it perfectly and did a successful website transfer in half an hour. Thank you!

  5. Thanks, after trying all other BS, All in one shits plugin, This worked, moved WP site from a different host to another.

  6. thats super long and complicated…i dont see the benefit like doing it manually in a way … its the same. All in one migration plugin plugin does that from 1-2 clicks however you have to pay them unfortunately.

  7. This is a great guide video, thank you so much!

  8. Thanks this was very helpful.

  9. great video – so clear and easy to follow . Thanks !!

  10. This is useless… why did you blur out the action, host in step 2 of 4… wasted my time

  11. Hi great video, one question, so duplicator once I start installing in the new server will have within all the plugins as well from my previous hosting? I mean clones or grabs also the plugins as well used for that previous site?. Thank you

  12. Will this copy the site page for page? So the end result is two identical websites on separate servers?

  13. Yeeeew! This worked. A bit of extra tweaking as my public_html file was in a subfolder but got there. Thanks heaps for this from Australia!

  14. You made a clear, short and valuable video. It is working perfectly. Thanks!

  15. I hope this is as easy as you say it is! I will watch it again a few times before I try! Thank you.

  16. This worked great for me. Many thanks! To share my experience, at the last step, if you encounter the message "Error Establishing a Database Connection", make sure the "Host" at the 3rd step is the name of the db server (you may check with phpMyadmin) . For me this was something like "localhost:1234" NOT "http://www.mysite.com" even though this was my site.

  17. This didn't work for me, I tried twice (deleted everything and started completely over from scratch); it still did not work. When I get to the last step and click on the Admin Login button, I get an error message that says "Sorry, index.php does not exist on this server." I've spent two hours on this so far with no luck. Very disappointed and going to have to try another method. 🙁
