Out of many easy to migrate WordPress plugins which let us move a WordPress website from one domain to another or to a different URL.
Sometimes plugins come out as unreliable and we need to try the traditional method of moving a WordPress website from one domain to another or from one URL to another.

In order to achieve it, first the files are copied from source to destination server or directory.

Then the database backup from source is imported in the destination database wp-config file is updated and once the connection is made, the site starts working. However, it is required to edit the database to update the existing URLs to point to the new domain or destination instead of source URL. In order to do that, we need to go to phpmyadmin and run the following query. Just change the URL to your own url and that will complete the manual transfer of a WordPress site from one domain to another or from one URL to another.
