Migration Guide #

We made the migration process as painless and convenient as possible. Just read and do the following steps:

  1. IMPORTANT: make a full website backup. We recommend making a backup via your hosting panel. As a fallback option you can use some backup plugins, this article may be useful.
  2. Download our Migrator plugin and install it on your website (screenshot).
  3. Buy Impreza theme and install it on your website.
  4. Go to Impreza > About page and activate the theme via a relevant button, approve synchronization with this Support Portal.
  5. Go to Impreza > Addons page and install WPBakery Page Builder (formerly Visual Composer), Header Builder, Slider Revolution addons, they will be needed in migration.
  6. Go to Tools > Migrate Corsa to Impreza page (if you don't see this point in admin menu, you need to activate "UpSolution Corsa to Impreza Migrator" plugin on Plugins page) and you will see the yellow box (screenshot), just check the only checkbox and click Start the Migration button.
  7. Wait for the migration ending, when it is completed you will see the green box (screenshot).
  8. Install and activate Force Regenerate Thumbnails plugin (screenshot), then go to Tools > Force Regenerate Thumbnails and click the button (screenshot). It will regenerate thumbnails of all uploaded images and delete the extra ones.
  9. If you're using some cache plugins or CDN, clear all the website cache.
  10. Now check your website.

When you complete the steps above — make sure that all of your website pages are displayed correctly and working as before. IF NOT please restore your website backup and turn back Corsa theme. That means you have some custom modifications, which are not compatible with Impreza. In this case, create a support ticket with the issue description. We'll review all the tickets and help you with the description of further steps, at the same time please note we won't fix the custom modifications manually.

2. Can you guarantee that my website won't broke after migration? #

We can't, that's why we strongly recommend you make backup of your website BEFORE migration.

We tested our Migrator plugin many times with real Corsa websites, it works just fine, if you didn't use strong customizations.

After that, you'll get money back within a few days.
