Migrate a WordPress Website with UpdraftPlus for Free (without Migrator or UpdraftClone)

How to Move a WordPress Site to a New Host

We often need to move a WordPress website to a new server or set up locally. I will usually use Wordmove and SSH to do this. But sometimes the client does not have SSH access to the server. In this case I will usually use Duplicator. Recently the client website had UpdraftPlus installed on the existing website.

  1. Install the free UpdraftPlus plugin on the old and new website.
  2. Backup your old website (db, plugins, theme, uploads, etc…) using the plugin.
  3. Transfer the backup files from the old site to the new site’s updraft directory http://newsite.com/wp-content/updraft/
  4. And add the following lines in the new site’s wp-config.php file: define(‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘http://newsite.com’);
    define(‘WP_HOME’, WP_SITEURL);
  5. Login to the new site and restore the backup files via the UpdraftPlus plugin. 
  6. Once restored, you will need to update the new website’s database with the new url. You can either use wp-cli or install a database Search and Replace plugin.

WordPress directory and file ownership and permissions

Is WordPress failing to upload, install, or update your plugins, themes, or media files? It’s possible that your directory and file permissions are not set correctly.

chown

The chown command allows you to change user and group ownership for files and directories.

Recursively change user and group ownership of all directories and files to www-data:www-data, from the current directory.

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data . 

chmod

The chmod command changes the access permissions for files and directories.

Recursively change all directory and file permissions from the current directory.

sudo . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;  
sudo . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \; 

wordmove

If you are updating WordPress via wordmove, you may wish to update all directory and file permissions automatically by setting rsync_options in your movefile.yml

 ssh:
    host: YOUR_HOST
    rsync_options: '-og --chown=www-data:www-data --no-perms --chmod=ugo=rwX'

Compile custom WordPress style.min.css from scss source files

It may be beneficial to dequeue the default WordPress Gutenberg block styles.min.css and compile your own from the source scss files.

The WordPress blocks css files is located here,
wp-includes/css/dist/block-library/style.min.css

The WordPress blocks source files are located here,
https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/tree/trunk/packages/block-library

npm install the source files,
npm install @wordpress/base-styles --save-dev
npm install @wordpress/block-library --save-dev

Remove Gutenberg Block Library CSS from loading on the frontend. Add to function.php

//Remove Gutenberg Block Library CSS from loading on the frontend
function sd_remove_wp_block_library_css(){
    wp_dequeue_style( 'wp-block-library' );

} 
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'sd_remove_wp_block_library_css', 100 );

@import scss files

// mixins, vars, etc..
@import "~@wordpress/base-styles/_mixins.scss";

@import "~@wordpress/base-styles/breakpoints";

@import "~@wordpress/base-styles/variables";

// style src
@import "~@wordpress/block-library/src/style";

You may need to replace ~ with path to scss files. e.g. ../../node_modules/@wordpress/base-styles/
Comment out the imports within @wordpress/block-library/src/_style.scss that are not required.
