Why Use Our Export Feature for Imports

The import feature in WP Migrate Pro should be able to import SQL files from some of the most popular MySQL database management tools like PHPMyAdmin, Sequel Pro, and MySQL command line.

However, we recommend using the export feature that is available in WP Migrate Pro. The exports are in a format that we have tested extensively and know works with the import feature, and they contain extra information about the database of the source site that can automatically fill out the find & replace fields so you can run a find & replace on the import.

If you have an SQL file that was generated by another tool and you get an error during the import, please email us at [email protected] so we can look into it further.
