Migrate WP from Apache to new host and EE Nginx, with different paths


#1

What would be the best way to do a migration of an existing WP site running on a host with Apache, to a new EE powered host?

The domain will be the same, but the paths on the filesystem will be different.
Plan is(was?) to do a ‘ee site create domain.tld --w3tc’, but with this in mind there is a few things I’m not to sure about how to do in a good way.

  • Path on the local filesystem differ between the hosts.
  • Installed plugins (disable or remove before migration?)
  • W3TC is in use on the current host, should I remove that before migration?

… maybe more things to think about that I’ve missed.
I Have read the tutorial here on rtcamp, but for me it’s still not clear, thinking of my senario.

Thanks in advance!

Um ok, but as far as I can tell, the site copy feature is not available yet so that’s the main reason I’m asking.
It even say so in the bottom of the tutorial.
