Backup & Migration: Overview

This is the major tabpage where everything starts. From this area, you can create a manual backup, a staging environment and migrate WordPress site.

This tab page is made up of the sections below:

Step One: I want to

  • Create a general backup and save it in localhost or remote storage.
  • Create a staging or dev environment. The backup will be sent to the staging folder in remote storage.
  • Migrate the WordPress site by sending the backups to either the migration folder in remote storage or to the target site directly.

Step four


  1. WPvivid Backup Plugin(Free and Pro) does not restore the .htaccess and wpconfig.php files as it can easily cause problems to restore the same .htaccess and wpconfig.php files on a different site. You should download and copy them manually as needed.
  2. WPvivid will exclude itself from a backup or migration. You can export the plugin settings from the old site and import them into the new migrated site on the plugin Settings page.
  3. When migrating a child theme that relies on the main(parent) theme. Make sure you also include the main theme if it is not activated.
  4. In order to successfully complete the migration, you’d better deactivate 301 redirect pluginfirewall and security plugin, and caching plugin (if they exist) before transferring website.
