How to Transfer an Exact Copy of your WordPress Website to Google Cloud Platform 2018:Hello everyone – it’s admin from https://virtualdataroombd.com and in this article I’m going to show you how to move to your existing WordPress website onto your new Google cloud platform instance so the first step in doing this is to head over to our existing.
Wordpress website so for me my existing WordPress website it onepagezen.com the next step is to go over to plugins “add new” and the plugin is called “all-in-one wp migration” so search that and install that plugin okay.
Then activate it alright – now you can see in the left bar here there’s an icon for it – so we’re going to go to “export” now remember – this is using our old wordpress website this is the website that we want to transfer to our new google cloud instance so we’re going to click on “export” and we’re going to export it to a file now this usually takes a couple of minutes alright – once that has finished downloading we’re going to head on over to our google cloud platform and we’re going to log in to the admin panel.
Now this is where our new website is going to be and we’re going to install the same plugin in our new WordPress website so… I’ve already installed it and it’s right here, “all-in-one wp migration” the activate that… and now you see it looks just like it did on our old WordPress website it appears in the left column here… so now I am going to do the “import” instead of “export” and I’m going to click “import from” … “file” and in this case I saved it on my desktop.
So here’s the file that we just exported from our old wordpress website so I’m going to click that …”open” and right now it is going to import that website onto google cloud platform so that usually takes a few minutes here ok perfect – now that it’s done importing *if you do get an error message while it is importing your website, just click “ok” it potentially going to ask you about overwriting your existing database and you want to confirm that so after it’s all imported you are going to go to “settings” and then “permalinks” – because you need to change your “permalink” structure now the way I do this is real easy:
I just go to “plain – “save changes” and then I go back to “post name” – “save changes”, and that kind of resets the system a bit-perfect – save that – and then go up here to “visit site” and there you go – you have your existing WordPress website just like it appeared on your old hosting provider, but now it’s running on google cloud platform if you have any questions leave a comment in the box below . how to get rid of that otherwise, thanks for reading and take care.
