On this page we will list different methods on how to migrate from local to Templ.


Migrate with Duplicator

There are a few more steps to migrating a site with Duplicator from a local environment than from a live environment.

The trick here is to upload the Duplicator archive where a direct download is possible. In other words, Dropbox and Google Drive and similar services require the user to click "Download now"-button or similar which will not work with our Import feature.


Export Phase:

  1. Follow our Phase 1 of our Duplicator guide and create your archive.zip file of your locally developed WordPress site.
  2. Set up a website in the Templ Panel if you haven't already, and create a staging site.
  3. Upload the Duplicator archive.zip file to the STAGING SITE with SFTP.

You should now have a file that you can import to the main website from your staging website. The link should look similar to this:

https://yourdomain.templweb.com/20200221_website-name_12345678_archive.zip 


Import Phase:

  1. Follow our guide on how to Import a website with Duplicator. 
  2. Paste the link to the file and start the import.


Alternatives to Duplicator

  1. Migrate manually by uploading the WordPress files and database.
  2. Let us migrate for you. All we need is access to a zip file with the WordPress files and database, then we can take care of the rest from there.
