    My favourite WP plugin for backing my WordPress site up and also for moving it is:

    All in One WP Migration Plugin

    All you need to do is load the plugin. Then click on export and the plugin will guide you to export it in any way you choose. I usually choose file – meaning to my computer. I do backups like these after every update of my WP site or new posts or alternations.

    To migrate or restore the site, all you need to do is create a new WP installation. Then load the All in One WP migration plugin and then import the backup file from your computer or source where you stored it. Just remember at the end of the restore process to save the Permalinks twice. That seems to be a very important step.

    Another good plugin is Duplicator. Although it’s a bit more finicky with the specs required from the server to make it work.

    So what is your favourite plugin for migrating your WordPress sites?

    Is funny that you mention that I was using the migrating assistant from the cpannel on giga and now doing it from WordPress.

    I tried one time a plug-in on WordPress to do it and it went so wrong that I just do two backups the migration assistance and manual database and files.

    Am I complicating my life and with the plug-in you are mention the process is easy?

    Because now I will have to configure everything here and maybe the backups I did will make my life harder.

    Having a backup is crucial. Use a plugin to backup to a free cloud service like dropbox so that your data remains safe.

    I just do the smart backup and the manual from the cpannel and after what you recommended Binil and transfer via ftp all is working like a charm even the data base. So for now is my go to backup plan. Maybe in the future I will also use a WordPress plug-in to make it more simple or also have another plan B.

    If you are using a manual backup once in a while, then it good. I am suggesting to have a cloud backup just in case we loose the local backup that we have with us.
