In this article, we have listed limitations that are likely to cause the 1-click WordPress migration to fail.
- The web space files cannot exceed 700MB. This includes all files and folders that form your WordPress site, but not the database.
- The database cannot be bigger than 300MB. If you want to decrease the size of the database, your safest bet is to remove comments.
- The .htaccess file will be replaced with the default .htaccess that is part of the WordPress installation. If you have added custom settings to the .htaccess, you will need to add them again, after the migration has been completed.
- Migration of Multisite is not yet supported.
How to fix a failed WordPress migration?
- Remove all files and folders that were uploaded to the location you wanted to migrate to.
- Drop all tables that were imported into your database. Keep in mind that you may have existing tables from other installations.
- You can now retry the 1-click migration or start a manual WordPress migration.
