A quick question about migration.

I need to migrate a WordPress intall for testing from a BlueHost server.

This process does not modify or delete anything on the server being migrated from correct?

Also how does it get the database tables? It only asks for ftp info.

Thanks

Hello,

Correct, the migration process clones the install from the source server. Nothing on the source server is modified.

The process is technical, but essentially we upload a script using the FTP information that dumps the database.

Thank you,
Phil

Is the source server modified ? and Is a script harms the database to what it can give not the right information? :shock:
