How do I migrate using your plugin?

  1. Create a new instance on your control panel, or select the instance you want to migrate to.
  2. Open the 'Migrator' tab, and click the 'Create Code' button to generate a migration authentication code for either the live WordPress install, or the UAT/staging WordPress install.
  3. Head back to your website on its old holding. Upload to the "/wp-content/plugins/" directory on your old website. You may also be able to upload this zip file via the 'Add New' button in the Plugins menu.
  4. Activate the plugin through the "Plugins" menu in WordPress Admin panel on your old website.
  5. Click on Timpani Migrator in the Settings menu and enter your Timpani instance name and authcode.
  6. Go to Tools menu and choose Timpani Migrator. Then press the button to generate a zip file.
  7. Once that's done, click on Migrate to Timpani.
  8. Sit back and relax.

If you have any trouble with this process, it might be worth trying the manual/SFTP migration method, documented here
