Apologies if this is elsewhere – but I haven’t found anything specific.
This is my first time using Local to build a site.
I’ll explain my particular situation, and I’m hoping to get some experience from folks to avoid making mistakes.
I have a site currently running, but I’m doing a brand new site design from scratch in Local.
When I’m done, what I’d like to is replace the current site with the new one.
I’ve seen two plugins suggested – All in One WP Migration; and Duplicator. But I’m not sure what’s best – or what process should be followed.
So I’m looking to see what others do in this same situation. I’d like to backup and download the old site [just in case] and replace the live site with the one built in Local.
In addition – I worry about directory/permalink structure because of the “site domain” section on Local. When I used the real domain – it caused issues. So I used a different one on Local. Does this mean no links will work when I replace the live site?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your attention.
