Tips To Move WordPress to New Server Using Same Domain

Uploaded websites files - not yet extracted.

I always wanted to post a tutorial to move WordPress to new server same domain a long time ago, but for some reasons I haven’t done it.

So in this tutorial, we are going to move WordPress to new server using same domain. I am using wpdemoblog.com which is currently hosted in HostGator (for the demo purpose only) to BlueHost. Obviously, you can replace wpdemoblog.com with your domain name.

This tutorial can be used too from BlueHost to HostGator, or any hosts, I just use them for the demo.

So say, you have a blog now in HostGator, with the name wpdemoblog.com, and you want to move it to BlueHost.

What you want to do first, either move the domain from HostGator to a domain registrant like Namecheap, or bring the domain to BlueHost (as the new host). (While sign up the hosting plan, you need to specify, you already have the domain, and type wpdemoblog.com in your domain box.)

Fixing Too Many Authentication Failures For Username Error with Octopress

Too many authentication failures for username error message

Since I have setup an Octopress in my local machine, you can see how I did it here with Mac, and here with Windows. I have deployed to my webhost (HostGator) via Rsync.

I actually just deployed to create a demo video, but because I moved from one host to another, it detects that my public key is used in too many connections, and I got this error message.

So basically when I type:

ssh -p 2222 kimiweb6@wphowtosite.com

Received disconnect from IP Address: :2 Too many authentication failures for username

In this case, my username is kimiweb6 and my host is wphowtosite.com

Also typed, ssh -p 2222 -o PubkeyAuthentication=no kimiweb6@192.232.251.95 brought me to the Too many authentication failures for username result.
