Hi Darrel great videos as usual. I'm a huge fan thanks. It's because of your videos that I have started building websites. I have a question that's bothering me though. Do you know how to remove the Shipping tab from the check-out page? I'm using OceanWP and WooCommerce and even when I change the setting to "Disable shitting & all shipping costs" the Shipping tab still appears. Any idea what to do? Thanks

It worked! BUT I can't edit any pages.. It says "didn’t send any data. ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE" what do you think it may be?

Hi Darrel, I used aiw plugin to set up a “staging” site of my current live site on another server. I then ended up switching themes, adding content and various new plugins. Do you have a suggestion as to how I can move the new version of the staging site over to the live site without losing any of the information added to the live site during the time the staging site was being revamped?

Thank you, Darrel. You are explaining tech terms in a simple way. You saved my day. I choose and promote you as my tech guy. Also, $70 is an affordable price for the unlimited features. If you are in business, you pay the price. Awesome tutorial and I'll look for your videos if I need more help. Keep it up!

Hello Darrel, great info like always...wondering if I can use this plugin to migrate my site from one hosting to another hosting same company to a new domain? Please advise if you can :)
Paula Patio (2 months ago)
I know I commented on this before BUT ...Darrel Wilson Thank you! Thank You! THANK YOU! :) I purchased this plug in, did an "experiment" (i.e., moved a site from one place to another) and SUCCESS!!! :) Followed EXACTLY as you did. Reason why I purchased the plug in is: I have some "big sites" over 512 MB that I have to redo with Elementor (which is ALSO cool) and this plug in makes it easy-peazy :) Do you have a tutorial on LearnDash LMS? Again - Thank You! :)

Hi Darrel, awesome video as always but I have question, I have sites that are live still running and i want to replace the live sites with the new one that i have created from my local host to redesign the live site, my concern is the live site keep on getting order from customer daily (Im selling product online) and I've just finish my new web design at present which using the database that i export from the live site last week to make the changes, if i migrate using the all in one plugin, does it effect the number of customer orders and sales that i made at current time? If yes, do u have an idea how to solve this?

Dude, Darrel, thank you so much Brother! I've scoured the internet for ways to do this and videos on it - I looked at all kinds of stuff, kept knowing there must be an easier way - was looking for the easiest way period. This is it! There were no other videos, tutorials, or solutions that came anywhere close! I love you bro lol, you actually saved my ass on a client gig tonight because I didn't have time for anything but this to hit my deadline - and because of you I just hit my deadline lol! This probably looks like a fake post, but I'm just a dude that really had this come in handy - trying to give credit where it is due - thanks Darrel! Saved my day! :D <3 :D

Just want to say there is a workaround for uploading websites that are larger than 512mb. You can modify the code within the plugin. If you go to constants.php there is a line of code that says "Max_File_Size" at the end of the numbers place a 0. That will change it to 5gb instead of the 512mb. No need to pay any money.

Hello, Love this video! and I've learned quite a bit from a view of your others. Thanks!!!! I'm a bit confused about this process though. I'm trying to copy my live site to a testing site (subdomain). I guess I'm a bit unclear as to why when the import is complete on the new site, I have to login in with my old credentials on my new site. To me this seems like it would overwrite my live site and now this would be the new site. I'm confused. Any help you can provided would be appreciated! Thanks!!

Hi Darrel... Excellent video, as usual... Is there an issue with transferring a "http" to a "https" or vice-versa?
Lim Chin Seong (5 months ago)
I spent days trying other similar migration solutions offered in youtube and google. None of them work perfectly. There is always some residue problems. I didn't give up and found this solution by Darrel and it works perfectly. Thank you Darrel. Really appreciate it.

How do I back up so that ALL of my content gets included in the backup? So far it seems it only includes the newest content in the backup. Thank you for this great video!
Paul Hitchman (5 months ago)
got another plan? I used this but now after the update to Version 6.62 there's a problem https://servmask.zendesk.com/hc/en-us There is a maximum filesize restriction of 128MB. It makes it impossible to export larger websites because the exported WPRESS archive cannot be larger than 128MB. Most websites will be affected by this restriction. Workaround? Right now, there is no workaround.

Hey Darrel, thanks for your help, I was able to moved a client's domain/wordpress site to a new host.. just like that!
Zak Benjamin (6 months ago)
When you export from the original site and import to the new site - will it affect the permalinks or anything on the old site. I want to keep the old site the same but just want to use the template/plugins etc
BonnoBangali (6 months ago)
after the restored the site, what about my old host ?
Apoc4lypt0 (6 months ago)
you gotta redirect the domain to your new host assuming you're using the same domain, if not, just cancel the old host once the new one is working properly
BonnoBangali (6 months ago)
i mean, guess i have successfully imported the site,, but my old hosting is still live so what should i do ?
Darrel Wilson (6 months ago)
it will overwrite it

Darrel Wilson (8 months ago)
its your hosting company, they probably have a LIMIT upload, research MAX FILESIZE UPLOAD on your server
Prince Kumar (8 months ago)
All in one has upload size limit to 500MB only. If your site has lots of files. Its not going to help you for free.
Prince Kumar (6 months ago)
Thanks a Lot, buddy...
A Rodriguez (6 months ago)
Here is a quick fix for the file size limit starting at 7:00 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xl-q000yWR4

I recently tried migrating my site using this tool my entire site data file was 2GB when I tried uploading it restricted me and asked to go premium as I had not so much budget for this thing. I found a better solution used all in one wp migration for exporting all data except media files (which finally came to a size of less than 150MB) and used WordPress inbuilt tool to Export and Import my files. You can make a tutorial on this too..
Darrel Wilson (8 months ago)
so what if its not free for a large amount?

OMG - You are right on time!! Yesterday one of my WP sites blew up! I did all the trouble shooting. Disabled plugins, edited .htaccess. . The site was using SSL on a sub domain during development. I did not want the client to see it down. I tried using backups from the server (I am also admin to the virtual box) well I did every trick in the book and nothing worked. So Lucky I had a copy of the site running on my local machine. - It took me 4 hours to bring that site back.  Then you put this video up - Thank you!!! I just ran a test and moved a copy of the site and BAM! Within mins ....... OMG. I will be installing this on all my clients sites and store a offline back up ALWAYS from now on! Darrel You Rock!!!
Darrel Wilson (8 months ago)
lol its happened to me before, i know how devastating it can be when your site is all gone

I've been using updraft but sometimes it can't access the link to the back up file on the old website using the URL it gives you so you have to install updraft on the new domain and move the zip file with an ftp client to the backup folder with plugin/updraft and then paste the new URL in the restore option. This seems a whole lot better having it in your download folder
Paul Hitchman (8 months ago)
Darrel Wilson I'll do just that...
Darrel Wilson (8 months ago)
updraft isnt bad either, , but i dont think its as user friendly as this plugin. try them both and see what plugin works for ya
Bob (WebGuyBob) Raymond (8 months ago)
Hey Darrel. Great review and demo. Does this work if I have site developed on a locally installed WordPress instance (localhost on my home computer) and then import it to live domain instance of WordPress? Thanks again for all of your great knowledge sharing!
Bob (WebGuyBob) Raymond (8 months ago)
Cool, thanks!
Darrel Wilson (8 months ago)
yeah because you can export it from local and than upload it to your website, easy way huh
Donal Long (8 months ago)
Hey Darrel, Thanks for another great tutorial and usually I isten to what you say and take it as good advice, but on this occasion, when I went to look at the plugin there were over 200 poor reviews our of 3600. Most of these are talking about how the plugin didn't inform users of the size of the backup until they needed to re-install one and they got a message saying that an upgrade was required. The problem with buying the upgrade is that it's ** $99 ** which is a bit much for a plugin. While this might be great for migrating a small website, it's an expensive option for moving anything bigger than 512MB, which isn't that much when you've got a Database, a theme, a child theme, images, pages, posts etc. So my advice would be to try this for a site migration, where the images can be move separately if needed, but to use something like Updraft Plus for regular backups and backup scheduling.
Darrel Wilson (8 months ago)
ive used updraft from time to time, its a good plugin but sometimes i found that it didnt work depending on what kind of server i was trying to back it up on.
