Automating the repetitive task of migrating sites, such as keeping a local development site synchronized with a production site or a staging site in sync with a production site.

  • Save time by automating migrations – Setup once, run many times
  • Improve your service and quality to your customer by working on the best possible data on multiple environments
  • Simple and convenient maintenance of your environments being super fast and easy to use

WP Synchro FREE gives you:

  • Pull/push database from one site to another
  • Search/replace in database data (supports serialized data)
  • Select the database tables you want to move
  • High security – No other sites and servers are involved and all data is encrypted on transfer
  • All data is encrypted during synchronization
  • Setup once – Run multiple times – Perfect for development/staging/production environments

In addition to this, the PRO version gives you:

  • File synchronization (such as media, plugins, themes or custom locations)
  • Only synchronize the difference in files, which is super fast
  • Customize the exact synchronization you need – Down to a single file
  • Database backup before migration
  • WP CLI command to schedule synchronizations via cron or other trigger
  • Pretty much the ultimate tool for doing WordPress migrations
  • 14 day trial is waiting for you to get started at WPSynchro.com

Typical use for WP Synchro:

  • Developing websites on local server and wanting to push a website to a live server or staging server
  • Get a copy of a working production site, with both database and files, to a staging or local site for debugging or development with real data
  • Generally moving sites from one place to another, even on a firewalled local network

WP Synchro PRO version:

Pro version gives you more features, such as synchronizing files, database backup, WP CLI command and much faster support.

  4. Choose if data can be overwritten or be downloaded from installation in menu WP Synchro->Setup

  7. Enjoy
  8. Rerun the same migration again next time it is needed and enjoy how easy that was


Do you offer support?

Yes we do, for both free and PRO version. But PRO version users always get priority support, so support requests for the free version will normally take some time.

What is WP Synchro tested on?

Currently we do automated testing on more than 150 configurations with different WordPress/PHP/Database versions.

WP Synchro is tested on :
* MySQL 5.5 up to MySQL 8.0 and MariaDB from 5.5 to 10.3.
* PHP 5.6 up to latest version
* WordPress from 4.7 to latest version.


Just works!

After the initial setup, this plugin works seamlessly and has become part of our development workflow. One issue we had (support for self-signed SSL certificates) was quickly resolved by Brian. Would definitely recommend - has saved huge amounts of dev time!


I tried all the major and minor migration plugins and none of them come close to WP Synchro. Most migration plugins are not very intuitive, it's hard to figure out what to do, not WP Synchro. WP Synchro is SUPER EASY to use. It's the easiest of all the migration plugins. What sets WP Synchro apart from the others is that it works on an entirely different concept, I don't know how to describe it, just try it, you will see.

Must have tool for developers

Gotta love saving time doing manual migrations. Free version does a perfect job with the database migration. So I tried the PRO version, which also have file migration and now I don’t even have to that. So I can focus on the fun aka coding the actual site.
