Guidebook: Launching with VIP

Content migration

When you are ready to import content into your VIP site, we’ll need two things:

  1. A SQL dump of your site’s WordPress database
  2. A compressed archive of the uploads directory.

Most clients will want VIP to import content into their environment early in the development process, so they can ensure that everything looks great on the platform. Then, at the time of launch, we can update the content on your site with the most up-to-date content you’ve been creating.

If your content files are too large to attach to a Zendesk ticket, you can provide a link to Dropbox or a similar cloud storage service. VIP can also import content from an S3 bucket.
