What is a WordPress migration?
Simply for a layman, a Wordpress migration refers to the process of moving the Wordpress install from one server(Local server or live server) to another production server, without affecting its features and functionality.
For example, moving the Wordpress site from one hosting company to another or moving the local Wordpress install to the live location or live url(where it is open for general public to view your website).
