In last week’s webinar, on WP Engine’s Builder Tools we shared a few of the recent improvements to WP Migrate. We extended our existing database export functionality to be a full-site export – adding the ability to include media files, themes, plugins, and even WordPress core files.
You can also drag and drop this exported zip file right into Local, and in a matter of minutes, spin up the site on your local machine. Meaning you can build locally in a low-stress, low-risk environment.
One really cool thing about when an export is imported into Local is Local will automatically match PHP and MySQL versions to the export files! Making the whole remote to Local workflow faster and easier than it’s ever been.
