Hi All,

Our buyers often ask us how to migrate a WordPress installation from one domain to another without running into problems with lost data. As a result we decided to create a small web-app to help them in the process:

WordPress Domain Search and Replace Tool

This app allows a new domain or URL to replace an old one and fixes any related seralized data in the database.

Since the issue is very common, we’d like to share this free tool with other authors/buyers in the community. Let us know what you think.

PS. We contacted Envato first to be sure we wouldn’t break any forum rule by posting the link and they gave us the green light.

Everything but psd files, they would pollute the git repo too much imho.

one with only nginx installed, acting as reversed proxy. This is extremely fast and supereasy to manage :)
Yeah, nginx + proxy_cache stuff would do it as well. We have a simpler setup as in all previews are hosted on the same server/wp network install so a caching plugin was the easier solution for us.

Why not using Super/Total cache instead ? with page cache enabled and mod_rewrite, there won’t be any php/mysql involved at all since it would be exactly like serving a static html page.

I would suggest deleting the previous zips first, then update the new ones after having added a version prefix to the filename (like theme.v3.4.zip).

It happened to us in the past that uploading a new zip with the same name of the one still existing on envato server didn’t overwrite the old version.

if “how to not ask for support” was in the dictionary, that post would be included as example.

ps. the ip address is still in the image, you may want to remove it.

Just out of interest, the graph above, is that the amount of activity on your forums by month, or amount of new posts by month? :)
yep, new posts.

without dedicated staff we won’t have time to do anything else but support whole day and, even with 4 people working on it, our queue sometimes gets above 100 which is insane.

My suggestion would be to start looking for somebody as soon as possible because it takes time to find the right person and supports request can double or triple in just a couple of months.

To find good support staff isn’t easy at all, that’s something we’re struggling with on a regular basis because the amount of support posts in our forum keep increasing:

We tried posting here in forum, in free wp related job boards and lately we even bought paid job ads on stackoverflow and authenticjobs. We were lucky the first time (when posting here) and got a very talented young dev which is now part of of our team but, besides that, we tried a lot of people without success.

Currently we have 1 fulltime, 1 parttime and testing other 2 for parttime position but still searching for new candidates.

When we have a position open, we include in the submission form a mandatory WordPress test which needs to be completed to consider the candidate, after that we pick one or two of the most promising submissions and offer them a paid 2 weeks trial.

After the trial is over, we decide what to do.
