Thanks for listing out those steps, Denis! That is a great workflow.
To be fair, I didn’t actually spend 12 hours of my time. I just migrated it over the weekend and periodically checked on it. I probably spent less of my time than had I ssh’d it (especially considerin you don’t even have to do search and replace, etc, with the migrator), but it wasn’t practical for many situations. I’m actually surprised it didn’t error and kill the whole process.
Also, for other sites, the process is usually less than 20-30 min. Just a tidbit for those who are curious regarding their own applications.
That being said, I will definitely be giving the workflow you listed out here a try at some point, Denis.
