    I currently have an account with Dreamhost and would like to use your features with their websites. I currently own a different website and would like to combine Dreamhost, my website domain, and the features I receive from Boldgrid. How would I migrate this?

    Hi Matt!

    Thanks for reaching out! We’d be more than happy to help you with info on how to migrate your demo Cloud WordPress site to your website on DreamHost.

    We have an awesome plugin called Total Upkeep that can help you do that. All you need to do is install Total Upkeep on both websites, create a backup archive on the first site, then restore that backup on your second site. You can use our “magic link” which you will see, to automate the process.

    You can check out our guide on how to migrate your site to another host, this will give you an in-depth walk-through of the process and also includes a video to help demonstrate.

    I hope this helps Jon! Let us know if you have any further questions or if you have any trouble with this.

    So I think I did this backwards. Is there a way to reverse it so that I can do it correctly?

    Thanks for reaching back out Matt,

    It might be difficult to revert back to the original site if you did not first take a backup of the website for safe keeping before making any changes. Total Upkeep normally prompts users to backup their website on installation so it’s possible if you don’t remember manually taking a backup that one still exist.

    Check your available backups from your WordPress dashboard Total Upkeep > Backup Archives. It will likely be two backups present, if this is the case so look older version of your website to restore. Click View Details and scroll down and you should see a restore button.

    Hopefully there is a backup available of the original site that you can restore directly from Total Upkeep but if not reach back out to us and we’ll see if we can help you come up with another solution.

    Thanks Matt, I hope this helps!
