Wordmove is a nice little gem that lets you automatically mirror local Wordpress installations and DB data back and forth from your local development machine to the remote staging server.
Think of it like Capistrano for Wordpress, complete with push/pull capabilities.
gem install wordmove
> wordmove help Tasks: wordmove help [TASK] # Describe available tasks or one specific task wordmove init # Generates a brand new Movefile wordmove pull # Pulls WP data from remote host to the local machine wordmove push # Pushes WP data from local machine to remote host
You can configure Wordmove creating a
Movefile. That's just a YAML file with all the local and remote host infos:
local: vhost: "http://vhost.local" wordpress_path: "~/dev/sites/your_site" database: name: "database_name" username: "username" password: "password" host: "host" remote: vhost: "http://remote.com" wordpress_path: "/var/www/your_site" exclude: - .git - .DS_Store - .sass-cache - Movefile database: name: "database_name" username: "username" password: "password" host: "host" ssh: username: "username" password: "password" # optional, will use SSH public key if available host: "host" port: 2202 # optional
About SSH authentication
If you have your local SSH public key already installed on the remote machine.. (recommended)
Just drop the
remote.ssh.password file on your
sudo brew install https://raw.github.com/gist/1513663/3e98bf9e03feb7e31eeddcd08f89ca86163a376d/sshpass.rb
Please note that on Ubuntu 11.10
sshpass is at version 1.04, which has a bug that prevents it from working. Install version 1.03 or 1.05.
- Wordmove requires an SSH connection to the remote host;
- Wordmove requires
mysqlto be present in the remote host and executable by the SSH user;
- Wordmove requires
rsyncto be present and executable in your machine;
- As said above, you may also need
sshpasson your machine;
