If you are looking to move a wordpress site to another host then the process is relatively straightforward. First, upload the new site to your server. Then, install the same wordpress version on the new host. Finally, copy over any plugins that you need.
Restore any plugins that you copied over
If you copied any plugins from one WordPress site to another, chances are you’re wondering how to restore them. This article will walk you through the process of restoring any plugins that you copied over.
First, make sure that you have the original plugin files downloaded and ready to go. Next, head over to your new WordPress site and open up the Plugins folder. You’ll see a list of all the plugins that are installed on the site. To restore a plugin, simply click on it and select “Restore.”
If the plugin doesn’t appear in the list, then it likely isn’t installed on your new WordPress site. In that case, you’ll need to install it first before you can restore it. Once the plugin is restored, it’ll be available for use on your site.
