Migrate your database. Export full sites including media, themes, and plugins. Find and replace content with support for serialized data.
WP Migrate is a WordPress migration plugin that makes migrating your database and exporting full sites easy, fast, and stress-free.
WP Migrate Lite can help move your WordPress database using an easy-to-follow three-step process.
Simple, right? WordPress database migrations shouldn’t have to be overly complicated or cumbersome. With WP Migrate Lite, database transfers become so much easier.
WP Migrate Lite can now export your entire site, including the database, media uploads, themes, plugins, and other files required to create an exact copy of your site in a new environment. In the same friendly interface you know, you can configure your export, choose what you want to include or exclude, and then single-click your way to a downloadable ZIP file of your complete site. A perfect solution for simple migrations and site copying.
Import to Local
Thanks to our good friends at WP Engine, Local—the #1 local WordPress development tool—can now import full-site ZIP archives that have been exported using WP Migrate. Simply drag and drop the downloaded ZIP file into Local and you’re up and running with a complete copy of your site in minutes.
Find & Replace
WP Migrate can find and replace content anywhere in your WordPress database with support for serialized data. This makes it easier to migrate your database without risk of corruption.
WP Migrate handles serialized data by first unserializing it, identifying individual strings, and replacing any matches with your desired content. Once this process is complete, the data is once again serialized and placed back in the database.
You can also run a find and replace on the current database even if you have no plans to migrate it.
WP Migrate can automatically back up your database before running a find and replace operation or on demand as needed.
We’ve made an impact since launching the first version of WP Migrate with over 300,000 active installs and hundreds of five-star reviews on WordPress.org. WP Migrate is, in our opinion, the best WordPress migration plugin. Don’t just take our word for it though:

If you’re in need of a complete, reliable, and fast push/pull site migration solution with fine-tuned control over the database, media uploads, themes, plugins, and other wp-content files, then WP Migrate Pro is for you.
The pro features in WP Migrate fit perfectly into any WordPress developer’s toolbox. Here’s what you get when you upgrade:
All of these features and more are yours when you upgrade to WP Migrate Pro.
No, WP Migrate uses “migration profiles” that allow you to save your WordPress migration settings to make the process as fast as possible.
Yes, WP Migrate is compatible with multisites. With the Lite version, you can export, back up, and run find and replace operations across the entire multisite network. Upgrading to WP Migrate Pro opens up new possibilities for migrating single sites into or out of multisite networks. You can even migrate a subsite directly from one multisite to another.
You sure can! WP Migrate allows you to exclude spam comments from any WordPress migration in a click.
Don’t worry! By default, WP Migrate places all plugins into compatibility mode during a migration, which prevents them from loading for migration requests only.
Specific plugins can be enabled to run during a migration using a straightforward admin interface.
Yes, WP Migrate Lite includes
find-replace commands. Qualifying licenses of WP Migrate Pro include even more WP-CLI commands to push, pull, import, and manage settings from the command line.
