How To Transfer An Existing Site To Cloud22

  1. Backup your existing WordPress Site with an automated plugin. We recommend the following:
    1. UpdraftPlus
    2. All-in-One WP Migration
    3. Duplicator – WordPress Migration Plugin
  2. Use the same automated plugin on your new Cloud22 WordPress admin to migrate your backup made in Step 1.
  3. Make sure that what ever backup option you have selected above includes backing up your site files. If it hasn’t, you need to backup your existing WordPress files found in /wp-content using a FTP client, and then connect to your Cloud22 account via FTP to upload /wp-content into /public_html
  4. Migrate any existing email accounts on the old hosting/server.
  5. Finish any other site migration tasks and then update your DNS to point to Cloud22’s servers.
