Wordpress mover v0.7
The script moves your Wordpress database and all files to a new place. It uses several speed-up tricks to make transfers much faster than a normal FTP transfer. It makes all necessary fixes in the MySQL database and wp-config.php so that your Wordpress works properly.
This script is basically an automated implementation of the official Moving Wordpress guide and replaces all steps (FTP transfer, mysql export/import, fixing home and siteurl in the wp-options table via phpMyAdmin, etc).
The script is tested to work with Dreamhost, Godaddy, Hostgator, Bluehost, Hostmonster, and 1and1. It will also work with any host that uses cPanel.
This script will move your Wordpress installation:

How to useStep 1. Create a new database on your TARGET website/server (exactly like you did when you were installing wordpress for the first time) and note database name, user and password.
Step 2. Upload halty_source.php into your SOURCE wordpress root directory (i.e., where you have your index.php)
Step 3. Upload halty_target.php into your TARGET wordpress root directory (where you want your index.php to go to)
Step 4. Open halty_source.php in your web browser and enjoy!
FAQQ: I am moving my wordpress to another webhost or server, and I have already moved the domain. How do I run halty_source.php?
A: You do not need to move the domain before invoking halty_source.php. Target server is accessed by IP address, however, source server still needs a domain name. It could be any name, so if you have already moved your domain, then you could use a temporary domain name. You could also make a subdomain of your domain to point to the old server. Any way of accessing halty_source.php via browser will do the job just fine.
