As you may know, Wordpress stores all extra data (it’s called “metadata”) very slightly in it’s database. That’s the biggest problem of WordPress functionality, but not developers, who produce themes. Transferring database from one to other server is very risk-full, you may loose that part of data which stores in metafields (at least 80% of guarantee). So we’d not suggest you to transfer your data.
In any way we found a solution for that. Thanks to Brad Touesnard who developed a very helpful plugin WP Migrate DB for cases with transferring Wordpress’ database. Please read the description on the plugin’s page and follow their instructions, then you’ll be able to transfer your database properly without loosing any part of your website data.
They are really good ones!
