Site Issues: Still Working on It

As many of you have noticed, we have had some hiccups in moving the site from one server to another, but this move was necessary, and we will hopefully have things back to one hundred percent soon.

The first issue was we lost some comments, then I couldn’t publish posts due to a JavaScript error that would basically make my browser freeze for about two minutes before letting me stop the script, and then I couldn’t manage comments at all.

It reminded me of why I like moving WordPress blogs in a very specific way. Export from within WordPress, break down the export file into import files no larger than about 3-5MB, create a new WordPress blog on the new host, import the content, and move over the wp-content folder that includes images and plugins.

Of course you’ll be missing out on various settings and whatnot, but I have found this to be one of the quickest and cleanest ways to transition a WordPress blog over. It does come with its own set of problems sometimes, but I’ve had very few issues with it.

Anyone else have some WordPress moving tips? Let me know in the comments below.
