The plugin didn't work for any of my migration attempts, even though I was with cloudways support monitoring while in process. This is not even a cloudways plugin, it's a third party (BlogVault) plugin. So Cloudways can't help with this, they themselves need to contact BlogVault's support. I wouldn't waste your time trying this. If I were Cloudways I'd discontinue offering this option. Makes them look unprofessional.

I migrated a few sites over to Cloudways from Flywheel using this plugin. It was fine but when I tried to install plugins on the migrated site, there was a critical error. Spoke to their support but they refused to take responsibility. blamed it on PHP, theme and plugin incompatibility and said this was out of the scope of service lol. On their sales page, it says 100% bug-free migration. Even their team that manually did the migration encountered this issue. What a joke of a service.

I love Cloudways (I host all my sites with them) but I'm sorry this plugin doesn't work for me. Credentials validated by the plugin but ends up with an error message when reaching 95%. Tried multiple times the migration and always the same... Will adjust my review when I see it works for me EDIT : After submitting ticket to the support, it seems that some data in the table wp_postmeta are failing to be migrated from SiteGround to Cloudways. I quote the support "We have shared this error with the plugin author they are checking on it and will update us accordingly. Meanwhile, your patience will be highly appreciated" I'm waiting 🙂

It's an amazing plugin and I am using it to clone my client's sites to staging mode but it there should be an option to exclude the folders inside wp-content because some people uses Updraft or other backup tools and there is no option to exclude them. There is no sense to transfer those folder to staging sites.

I have to give this team 5 stars for patience, a well-written app, absolutely stellar customer support. I'm just too new to managing the webserv end of things to effectively run this, so I had to bail to a more managed solution for now.
