localhost dashboard and then go to plugins and click ‘Add New’ Now, search for ‘All in One’ and then install
this plugin So, let’s click ‘install’ and ‘activate’ Okay, So the plugin is installed on the local site Next, we’re going to

One WP Migration’ and click ‘Export’ Now click ‘Export to’ and file Now click ‘download’ And the content will be
downloaded into a file and then click close Okay! So now, we’ve got the content of our local site into a file So, now we can go to
the final step, which is to import this
file into our Live website So, let’s go to our Live Site’s dashboard Then, go to All-in-One
WP Migration and click ‘Import’ Now click ‘Import from’ and click ‘file’ Now, choose the file which
you’ve downloaded and click ‘open’ Now click ‘Proceed’
