Wordpress Hosting Manual Transfer

Modified on: Mon, 28 Nov, 2022

If your site hasn't migrated automatically, you should be able to try an alternative method by trying to complete this process manually. 

Step 1

Create Blank Site

1. Navigate to the Wordpress hosting section underneath the settings section in Pubdash.
2. Select create a blank site.
3. Once the blank site creation process is finished click the preview button and make sure that you see a blank site.

Step 2

Moving The Files To Local Computer

In order to perform this step you will need to have the ability to access your WordPress files, typically this is done through SFTP credentials but it is possible that your previous host has a tool/feature which your can use. We would recommend to contact your previous hosting provider if you are unsure on this.

The goal here is simply to drag the files from your old host onto your computer. To make this simple we would suggest creating a folder and then dropping all of the WordPress files into it. 

Step 3

Moving The Files Onto Our Hosting

1. Access the WordPress SFTP credentials in Pubdash
2. Login using Cyber Ducky or Filezilla
3. Open the folder from the previous step
4. Drag the files from the folder into the HTML folder in Cyber Ducky or Filezilla
5. If you get a pop-up asking if you want to replace the files, replace all of them.
6. Depending on your internet connection, the files will start being replacing/tranferring. 

Step 4


For this step, you have a couple of options.

- Downloading and using MySQL Workbench
- Use a plugin such as All-in-One WP Migration
- PHPMyAdmin

The easiest options will either be the plugin or PHPMyAdmin.

Using PHPMyAdmin

1. Select the export tab at the top.
2. Hit go and it should start downloading the MySQL DumpFile
3. Verify by checking that the file has a .sql at the end of it.



Step 5

Uploading The Dumpfile.sql

1. Login to phpmyadmin from the wordpress dashboard in pubdash
2. Click the Import Tab
3. Click Choose File
4. Choose the Dumpfile.sql that was created earlier


After this is completed, the process should be done and your site will be transferred to Ezoic's hosting.
