    Hi Labham Sogani

    Hope you are doing good today.

    There are many ways to migrate a site.
    Snapshot is one of them.

    To migrate site using backup from Snapshot you will need to follow those steps:

    1. create backup on site which you try to migrate

    2. connect to FTP of this site and enter this folder:
    /wp-content/uploads/snapshot/
    in there you can find ZIP of this backup you made.

    For example if you call your backup migrate_test you will find a ZIP file in that folder, please check screenshots:

    3. on site where you will restore this backup you will need to also connect via FTP to same folder and upload this ZIP file there

    4. enter dashboard on new site and go to Snapshot -> Import, scroll down to bottom and press IMPORT button. This will automatically import this ZIP file to backup list and you will be able restore this site in Snapshot -> Snapshots.

    However I encourage to use our migration plugin called Shipper:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/shipper-pro/
    This should be more easy then.

    If you have any additional questions please feel free to ask :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards,
    Kris
