Συχνές Ερωτήσεις

What makes Prime Mover unique to other existing migration and backup plugins?

  • The free version has no restriction on package size, number of websites or mode of migration (single-site or multisite will work). (Note: Exporting/Restoring a multisite main site is a PRO feature)
  • The free version supports WordPress multisite migration on any number of subsites except that exporting/restoring the multisite main site is a PRO feature.
  • It can backup WordPress multisite sub-sites or migrate multisite.
  • No need to delete your WordPress installation, create/delete the database, and all other technical stuff. It will save you a lot of time.
  • This is not hosting-dependent. Prime Mover is designed to work with any hosting companies you want to work with.
  • The free version has full multisite migration functionality. This feature is usually missing in most migration plugins free version.
  • Full versatility – migrating from your localhost, dev site, or from a live site to another live site.
  • You will be doing the entire migration inside the WordPress admin. Anyone with administrator access can do it. There is no need to hire a freelancer to do the job – saves you money.
  • No messing with complicated migration settings, the free version has built-in settings. Only choose a few options to export and migrate, that’s it.
  • You can save, download, delete, and migrate packages using the management page.
  • No need to worry about PHP configuration and server settings. Compatible with most default PHP server settings even in limited shared hosting.
  • Prime Mover works with modern PHP versions 5.6 to 8.1+ (Google Drive feature requires at least PHP 7.1).
  • The code is following PHP-fig coding standards (standard PHP coding guidelines).
  • The free version supports backup and restoration of non-UTF8 sites. However, you need the PRO version to migrate non-UTF8 to the UTF8 (utf8mb4) database charset and vice versa.
  • You don’t need to worry about setting up users or changing user passwords after migration. It does not overwrite existing site users after migration.

Impressive plugin!Fast and precise that happiness!Found by chance while browsing the WPMarmite blog, who was surprised by the number of "5 stars" with a ratio of 100%.wpmarmite.com plugin-migration-wordpressIt is with pleasure that I add a "5 stars".Small note, it does not export non-wordpress databases, but very few tools do.I'm thinking of adopting it definitively after a few additional tests.Superb work!

I have tried moving a wordpress site from a multi-site network environment to a single site configuration with a number of tools and the Elementor site never came out correctly. With Prime Mover, it was an easy process and the new single site looks great! Thanks!

Update : no Trojans injected as indicated below . It was from theme developer. Works good. The plugin works just fine, but noticed its ingesting a Java script Trojan upon exporting your website. Beware of using this plugin. See the attached image and this js was never part of the website, but upon exporting it, prime mover is injecting Trojans. Injected assets=>js=>plugins=>jquery.syotimer.min.js into my themes addon plugin.
