Really diggin’ ServMask’s All-in-One WP Migration WordPress plugin to move site from stage to live. And easy to Export/Import serialized data.

I usually move from a Stage site to a Live site.The following instructions are super-helpful.

  1. Open All-in-One WP Migration.
  2. Click the “Find <text> Replace with <another-text> in the database” accordion tab.
  3. Fill in the fields with URLs.
  4. Click the Add button, and fill out second set of fields with file paths.
