How does blogVault migrate your website?

Sep 7, 2012

blogVault migrates your website efficiently and quickly and you won’t have to worry about a thing. Site migration is easy for blogVault because we already have your latest backup with us. All we need to do is move it to your new WordPress installation. Just give us your new hostname and we’ll take care of the rest.

Some of key details that blogVault looks after when migrating your site,

Find and Replace site names

blogVault drills deep into your website and replaces each and every mention of your old hostname with your new one. This task is not easy, as your data is saved in your database. The task of drilling into serialized text in your DB is done by us.

blogVault lets you migrate to your site to a new server without changing your name servers. This will let you ensure that the site is up and running on a new server without any downtime.
You will just need to ensure that the new server is capable of handling your domain. This can be by setting up the domain as a add-on domain on cPanel.

wp-config file

Your wp-config.php file is easily the most important file in your WordPress installation. It serves as your site’s base configuration file, controlling key aspects of WordPress’ functionality and enabling WordPress to do mission-critical stuff like connect to the database. It also stores your site address and blog address. When you migrate your website, blogVault takes care of your wp-config file and makes all the necessary changes to it.


When we’re moving your site to your new host, instead of copying over your files one at a time, we zip multiple files together to reduce the time it takes to copy them. The files are then unzipped on your new server.
