  • Specify the location: Choose where you want to install Wordpress. We recommend putting it in the root of your website.
  • Automatically update this app when updates are available : We recommend that you check this box to keep your Wordpress up to date.
  • Administrative access to the application: The default option is best in this case.

Moving an Existing Wordpress to XMission Hosting

1 Follow the above section

  • Most Hosting companies will use PHPMyAdmin - you can log into this and export your database.

3 Once your Database has been exported you will log into your control panel as stated above in Step 2 then click on Websites & Domains as in Step 3

14 Once you have imported your database - you can then FTP your files to your new server. Use an FTP program like FileZIlla that is free and will work for Mac, Windows, and Linux

  • IF you are using FileZilla fill in the following information:


    • Host Name - your domain name (i.e. domain.com )
    • Username - your FTP username
    • Password - your FTP password
  • When you FTP your files to your new Hosting - DO NOT include the wp-config.php or the .htaccess files

15 Once you have FTP'd all of your files - you can then log in to your Admin panel (i.e. http://domain.com/wp-admin/) you can log in with the same username and password that you always have.

  • Once you have logged in you will want to Click on Settings > Permalinks make sure it is currently set to Default .. click Save .. This will crate a .htaccess file. Now you can set the Permalinks the way you want.

Your Site should now be up and running the way it was at your old host.

Moving your wordpress from one Domain to Another

1 Follow the sections above - However After Step 13 follow these instructions

2 Choose SQL from the menu bar

3 Insert the following:

UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = 'http://www.domain.com' WHERE option_name IN ('siteurl', 'home')

Insert that SQL query in the giant ‘Run SQL query/queries on database…’ field and change the http://www.domain.com to reflect the root level of the site you’re transferring to (so, if you’re moving WordPress to www.domain.com/bar make sure that the /bar is appended here)

4 Next you will want to run another SQL command:

UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content=(REPLACE (post_content, '{old url}','{new url}'))

If you’re moving from http://www.olddomain.com/blog to http://www.newdomain.com you’ll want {old url} to say ‘www.olddomain.com/blog’ and {new url} to say ‘www.newdomain.com’.)

  • After you run the above commands your WordPress site should now reflect your new domain.
  • Continue steps 14 and 15 above as you will also want to edit your settings in Wordpress to reflect your new Domain name
