How to Export Your Database With WP Migrate DB

WP Migrate DB is a free plugin for WordPress that enables users to export databases in a user-friendly and customizable environment. This plugin eliminates the need to login to phpMyAdmin when exporting database content, streamlining the migration process and allowing users to quickly export their database even if they only have access to the WordPress dashboard.

Login to your wordpress dashboard. eg :

Install plugin : WP Migrate DB through the WordPress plugins screen directly. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress

To access the plugin interface, navigate the sidebar to Tools > Migrate DB.

Once on the Migrate DB page, click the checkbox for Save as file to your computer if it is not already checked. If you have a large database, you may want to also select Compress file with gzip to speed up the download.

Replace the original file path with the file path used for the site on the new server. If the site will be moved to a new URL you will want to replace the original URL as well. Then click Export.

Once the loading bar has completed the file should be automatically downloaded to your computer.

You can upload the exported .sql or .sql.gz file to your new server via phpMyAdmin.
