Hard Lesson Learned
Last Update: May 19, 2016
Wow, did I learn in a hurry what to do next time and what to do from now on. I was transferring one site to the other as Super Woman realized she didn't have enough power left to handle 3 sites!! It wasn't that I just thought I could handle it, I had two really good domain names and just didn't know which to go with so did two. And of course each one had it's own content, different from the other. Both were affiliate sites for WA so I thought rather than go in the red again for my health report I would move one.
I double checked to be sure I was going to do it right, and then copied and pasted each one over. Then I deleted the posts and then I moved the site! I made one crucial error it seems, so I wanted to let anyone know if they are moving a site do NOT DELETE until after the transfer is completed. I lost 16posts. They were there, then they disappeared.
Support was great at explaining what happened but it still seemed so odd. Why would I lose the 16 from the site I was transferring too not from! Baffling to say the least. So, what is the lesson. Not only back up your sites, save your content separate from that, in word, note pad or whatever program you use. It is a powerless feeling knowing you have to do it all again and most from scratch as I wrote directly onto my blog.
Note from Support:
I took a day off, did some hard labor, paid for my mistake and now I am back to re-write. Make sure you know exactly what you are doing before the 'move' button. You don't want to make the same mistake.
Thanks to support and my sponsor John for the extra help.
