Managed WordPress Help

Upload your site files

Step 3 of the Migrate my WordPress site manually series.

Required: You'll need an FTP client to upload your site files. We recommend FileZilla.

Upload the WordPress site files you downloaded in Download your site files with an FTP client. A large number of images or other media files will increase the amount of time needed to complete the upload.

  1. Connect to your Managed WordPress account with an FTP client. (Need help connecting with FTP?)
  2. In FileZilla on the Local site side of the interface, locate the wp-content folder you downloaded. Select the folder then right-click (Windows) or Control + mouse button (macOS) and select Upload.
    select the folder to upload
  3. You'll see a warning that the Target file already exists. Select Overwrite, Always use this action, and Apply to current queue only.
    select overwrite options
  4. Select OK.

Don't continue to the next step until the FTP client finishes uploading your files.
