Databases, Migrations & SQL: Oh My! Introduction to WordPress Database & Migrations

Presented at WordPress St. Petersburg Meetup, 2/1/2018

You've created your new website design on your own host or on your local laptop and now you're ready to launch for the client. Do you suddenly _cringe_ at the concept of having to migrate the site? Have you done it before and it's always a mess and a headache and you wish you had a method that always worked? This meetup might be for you!

We'll be talking about most things database, but will cover some of the basics of site migration:

- Tour of the WordPress Database
- What those tables mean and what they control
- Where the files are stored that are specific to your WordPress configuration
- What things specifically have to change when you migrate
- Some easy plugins for painless migrations

If you have a special plugin that you love and you want to sing its praises, let me know ahead of time and we'll include it in the talk. Be prepared to come with your questions!
