    Hey Terry,

    Hope you're doing well today! Welcome to the WPMU DEV Community :slight_smile:

    Our Snapshot Pro plugin is meant more for backups; however, you can also restore those backups onto a site. So what you could do is take a backup then install Snapshot on a WP install on the server you want it moved too, then upload that snapshot to the /wp-content/uploads/snapshots folder.

    Once you have it uploaded you can import it to the Snapshot list via: Snapshots > Import. Then you can restore it :slight_smile:

    With that said, the migration logic is still in beta, so make sure you don't remove your original site until you know the new setup is looking good.

    Another option that I find is an easy way to move a site to a new server is this one:

    You will find the instructions on that page. Again you need to have the base WP install setup on the new server, but from there you just sync the db over from the dashboards.

    If you have any further questions just let us know!
