FAQ

What do I need to use Migrate Guru?

You’ll need:
* An account on the new web hosting service.
* A domain on the new host, with WordPress installed.
* The destination’s FTP/cPanel details(optional).

Why do you need my email?

Migrate Guru requires an email address to send you updates on the migration process, notify you of any errors that occur during the migration.

How long does Migrate Guru take to move a site?

Migrate Guru can move a 1 GB (files & database) site in <30 Mins*
(*Approximate & depends on a number of factors).

Are there any limitations on the number of migrations?

Yes. We’ve enforced a limit of 5 site migrations/user/month (developers can request to have this limit extended). This cap ensures that our servers aren’t overburdened. Each of the 5 sites can be moved unlimited times.

Does Migrate Guru backup my site?

No.

Do I need to have WordPress installed in the destination?

Yes.

Do I need to have Migrate Guru installed in the destination to transfer my site?

Yes.

Why do you need FTP/cPanel details?

Migrate Guru requires FTP/cPanel details primarily as a fallback. The plugin generally doesn’t need these details, relying instead on Migration-key based migration. However, in cases where this primary method encounters issues, the plugin uses FTP/cPanel details as an alternative to ensure a seamless migration.

How do I move a multi-site network?

When installed on a WordPress multi-site network, the plugin automatically becomes ‘network activated’. Once this is done you can go by the same steps as a single site.

Do you have a help guide/documentation?

Yes, we do. You can access it here: https://migrateguru.freshdesk.com/support/home

Works really really well. Was super impressed.

I couldn’t get Migrate Guru to work with localwp. It has something to do with the compulsory sending of the email which doesn’t work in localwp because it intercepts emails. So it is not useful if you want to develop your website locally before moving it to an online site.

Tried for hours to migrate my 6GB site to another host without luck. With Migrate Guru I did it in minutes with just a couple of clicks. Free…? Wow!

Spent hours trying to figure this out, but this plugin worked like magic and that it is free beats anything else out there. Outstanding
