Merge Local WP Site With Live Site In 6 Simple Steps

6 Simple Steps To A Successful Merge Of A Localhosted WordPress Site With A Live Hosted WordPress Site

Recently I did a series of training videos on how to set up a localhost environment to develop WordPress site and then to move those ‘developed’ sites to a live host.

So Moving a local site to a live hosting environment is simple enough, as I demonstrated in videos 10 & 12 of that series.

Merging a local site with a live site that has changes on both, well that can be a bit more tricky.merge localhosted wordpress site with live site image

With that in mind I set out to find a solution.

What I found was a few different solutions and all of them were technically challenging to say the least. Of course if you’re a programmer or you are familiar with command line interface (CLI), then what I consider to be technically challenging, you may consider to be child’s-play.

So I did some tinkering and I think what I came up with will work in most every situation where, 1. You have worked on a site locally and
2. That same site in the live host environment has had some posts added.

As I’m posting this article, my Birthday is in a couple days and my gift to you is some free white label (PLR) videos on how to Merge a Localhosted WordPress site with it’s Live hosted counterpart.

Here are 6 videos that cover each of the steps I outline in video 1. At the end of this post is a download link where you can download all 6 videos and do with them as you see fit.

Again, these videos are pure white label meaning there is no mention of me nor my sites (just the dummy sites I use in the demos) .

A good idea would be to use these as leaders or blog posts to promote your selling of Volume 04 that you purchased from me (hint hint). Of course if you haven’t purchased Volume 04 of the PLR4WP sets of videos, please feel free to do so now </self-promotion>.

Okay, seriously, you can do whatever you want with these and I hope they help you in more ways than one – My B-Day gift to you.
