How To Migrate WordPress from Shared server to Cloud hosting?

WordPress can be migrated from shared hosting to personal cloud environment without a downtime by using following simple steps.

You should backup everything including all files as well as database from the existing server by using cPanel. Ideally you should backup images and plugins by creating an archive of wp-contents directory and then downloading the same. 

Database backup can be executed by using backup wizard on cPanel. Backup MySQL database and save it in backup_db.sql.gz on the desktop. 

Setting up cloud server

You can launch a droplet and follow the steps mentioned in the guide ‘initial server setup for Ubuntu 14.04’. After the initial setup of cloud you should ensure installation of LAMP stack.

After the setting up of cloud server as well as LAMP stack you should install WordPress.

scp ~/Downloads/backup_db.sql.gz [email protected]_ip_address:

scp ~/Downloads/ [email protected]_ip_address:

Restoration of database

After server login, execute the following commands by using substitutions in appropriate places:

mysql -h localhost -u database_user -p database_name < backup_db.sql.gz

After responding to the request for entering your password, your database contents will be instantly imported to desired database. 

Restoration of WordPress Content files

By simple extraction and using an unzip command you can restore plugins, media, and themes. 

This should be followed by testing your blog and clearing your DNS cache.
