In this screencast I will show you how to move a WordPress website from one Plesk server to another without the Migration Manager.
We’ll extract the files on the source server and export the database. Then we’ll create a new WordPress instance on the destination server and upload the files and import the database. All that remains is to point the domain to the new IP.
I’m doing this without the Migration Manager because the source server is an Amazon EC2 instance and does not allow root access with a password (which the Migration Manager needs – and Plesk doesn’t yet have a feature that allows me to use a keyfile instead).
The workflow is entirely web-based and you won’t need anything other than your favourite web browser.
