[mks_toggle title=”Automatic or Manual?” state=”open”]WP Migrate DB is a very hands-on product that needs you set it up and configure it. Moreover, it only creates a copy of your site’s database, while importing it is left up to you. You can do this via phpMyAdmin or an FTP client. Migrate Guru eliminates all manual work and moves your entire site automatically, without needing any configuration or even an export-import function.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Minimum number of steps required” state=”close”]Migrate Guru helps you migrate your site, as long as you have your destination’s details. Simply input them into the plugin, click ‘Migrate’, and verify your email address. That’s it. With WP Migrate DB, you will need to perform 5 steps but even these are manual (e.g. importing your site’s database to the destination site).[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Live Site Crashes” state=”close”] When you use Migrate Guru to migrate your site, the plugin contacts our servers, and uses our server resources to move a copy of your site to the destination you choose. WP Migrate DB relies on your live site’s resources to move your site. Depending on your server resources and the size of your site, this process could crash your site even before the migration is complete.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Source Server Utilization” state=”close”]Since Migrate Guru uses our servers, there is no load on your site at all. You will not have this guarantee with WP Migrate DB or other migration plugins simply because they use your source site’s server resources to move a copy of your site to your destination.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Limit on site size in free version” state=”close”]No matter the size of your site, Migrate Guru moves it to the destination without any hiccups or glitches. Most WordPress migration plugins have limits in this regard. The migration could time out, fail, or simply not progress, depending on the size of the site.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Supports/Allows for multisite migrations” state=”close”]Most migration plugins (including WP Migrate DB) usually require a paid subscription, or a separate add-on to migrate WordPress multisite installations. Migrate Guru makes things easy. To move your entire WordPress multisite network, all you have to do is install the plugin on the network. The plugin automatically becomes ‘network activated’, meaning it allows you to move the entire network as if it were one single site.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Migrations to and from any host” state=”close”]With Migrate Guru, you can move your WordPress site to any destination host in the world, without any problems whatsoever. All you need, are your destination’s cPanel or FTP details.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Automatic email alerts” state=”close”]With WP Migrate DB, since you’re performing quite a bit of the migration process manually, the tool doesn’t alert you of the progress of the migration.Migrate Guru on the other hand, not only performs the migration for you but also lets you know when it starts, of its progress, and when it’s complete.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Real-time Progress Display” state=”close”]Since WP Migrate DB doesn’t offer email alerts, it also doesn’t notify you of your site’s migration progress in real time. When you use Migrate Guru to move a WordPress site, you’re taken to a real-time progress page on which you can see how far along the migration is, at any point in time.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Zero downtime migrations” state=”close”]WP Migrate DB uses a more manual-approach to migrations and as such can not guarantee zero downtime migration. However, with Migrate Guru, the process (including URL redirection) is fully automatic.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Plugin to be installed on destination” state=”close”]Most WordPress migration plugins (including WP Migrate DB) need to be installed on both the source (i.e. live) and destination sites. When you use Migrate Guru, you need to only install it on the live site.[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Average Migration Time” state=”close”]The time WP Migrate DB takes to migrate your WordPress sites depends on the size of your site, and your live site’s server resources. Migrate Guru, on the other hand, takes under 12 minutes for a site of 500 MB[/mks_toggle] [mks_toggle title=”Largest Site Size Handled” state=”close”]WP Migrate DB handles large databases, but doesn’t migrate your entire site. You would need an add-on to do so. Migrations of sites close to 200 GB are a breeze with Migrate Guru.[/mks_toggle]
