    Hi everybody,
    I have finished my website using WordPress and Avada Theme. Now, I need to install it on another host.
    I plan to do the following :
    1. I go on my FTP and I save all my wordpress site elements (files and folders) on my computer.
    2. I go in Avada/Theme Options/Import-export and I “download data file” that gives me a .json file
    3. I upload by FTP the wordpress site elements on the new hosting, create a new database and reinstall Avada.
    4. I go back to Avada/Theme Options/Import-export and “import contents from file”
    By doing this, do I get my website as it was previously ?
    Thanks in advance. All tips welcome !
    Cheers,
    Philippe

    Hi Philippe,

    The much simpler approach is to use a plugin, so that is what I would recommend.
    A couple example plugins being:
    https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-wp-migration/
    https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

    All in one should be particularly straight forward – https://help.servmask.com/knowledgebase/all-in-one-wp-migration-user-guide/
