Migrating to a new host leaves Poster and Embed Blank
« on: May 14, 2017, 05:19:17 pm »
I had this issue a couple years ago when I moved to a new host. I ended up having to manually import my WP instance, and I really don't want to do that again.

I am migrating my Wordpress instance to WP Engine. The import works in all ways except the "poster image" and "Media Embed" fields are flushed clean. Since I have thousands of posts, I can't have that happen.

Do I have to prep something before I move the site over?

I looked at my old notes to find what I did last time. I simply copied the wp-posts and wp-postmeta SQL tables over to the new database.

Still, this needs to be looked at. I have other websites to transfer. I'll report back if they have the same problem (thus ruling out a singularity).
