#WordPress batch utility
The utility performs export and restore operations for WordPress installations.
The result of export is JSON file (batch) and a set of files which can be used for
easy WP deploy via command line.
Import works with a previously exported batch and can replicate WP installation
with all data and plugins you had.
Key features

  • Export current installation status to JSON file
  • Automatic themes and plugins install
  • WordPress install
  • Database import and export
  • Media import and export planned
  • WP backup planned
  • Export backups to different data providers (FTP, Google Drive, S3) planned

Warnings and limitations

  • This utility requires shell_exec to be permitted on the host for WP data export or WP restore and install
  • mysqldump should be installed for data export
  • wp-cli should be installed for WP, themes and plugins install

Usage example
