WordPress serialized data

As you already may know, WordPress serializes a lot of data in the database. What does this actually mean? Let’s see the following example:

s:39:"This is your old URL:";

This is stored in the database and if you transfer it to a new domain, per say, you will have to replace with

A simple search and replace will do the job, right? Well, you might think so, but unfortunately not!

After you do the replace the result is the following:

s:39:"This is your old URL:";

And the problem is that the new string is not composed of 39 characters anymore. It is 41 now and if you want WordPress to be able to parse this string, you will have to change the 39 with 41. And this is just a simple example. The WordPress database is full of this kind of serialized objects and strings.

We will do all the refactoring for you, so your database will work as it was working on the source domain/hosting.

Although this is the easiest and headache-free method to make a WordPress website migration, we offer many other migration methods that you can opt for:
