In a new weekly feature, I want to share some of my must-have WordPress plugins. These are the WordPress plugins I use every day to speed up my workflow, optimise websites or keep on top of boring tasks. Up this week: WP Migrate DB Pro.

What is it?

WP Migrate DB Pro is a WordPress plugin that you must have if you keep multiple versions of the same WordPress website. You can easily copy your database and media files from one WordPress install to another with just one click in your dashboard.

Why do you need it?

I typically have a local copy, a test copy and a live version of my WordPress websites. As many people know it is an utter pain synchronising databases across multiple website addresses. I have been using WP Migrate DB Pro for over a year now. It is solid, it is easy to use and it has saved me hours of time in the last 12 months.

How much does it cost?

You can see the pricing page here. I have a developer licence, currently priced at $199 per year. That’s about £150 GBP. I made that back in time saved in just one month after purchasing it.

And if you buy now, you get 20% off on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday discount!
