For those that are used to how EEv3 works, Wordops is an easy migration path since the site structures, folder structures, etc are all similar. I do use and really like EEv4 and am completely comfortable on that platform, including intermediate level Docker administration. But it is not for everyone, especially if you have no prior knowledge of Docker and do not wish to undertake learning something new.
But migrating, whether to a new platform, or a different system could not be easier in Woprdpress sites. The only challenge you will have is managing the downtime waiting for DNS to propagate from the old server to the new server. This amounts to roughly about 15 minutes of downtime on the average for the site. This can be mitigated in various ways, but another topic for a different post.
My super simple migration solution is to install a plugin such as WPVivid, Duplicator, Updraft or Jetpack (just to name a few) and use the plugin to copy over all the site files and the database. Some of the plugins even allow for a complete site-to-site migration but I tend to take more of an old school approach.
This would look like this in a step-by-step:
- Install plugin on current site
- Run the backup and download the site files and database to your local computer.
- Setup new server and have it ready to go.
- Move DNS from old server IP to new server IP
- Install new site on new server.
- Log into new wordperss and install the same backup plugin as step 1.
- Run the restore as instructed.
