Scope: Prime Mover Pro


Thank you for using Prime Mover Pro. This version comes with so many useful features that you need to know and configure before using the plugin.

It is recommended to follow each of them in a step by step manner. You ONLY need to do this for the first time only. Once you have followed the getting started guide, you don’t need to go over this step again. And you will go directly to exporting / restoring your sites.

If you are first time user, it is highly recommended to read the entire documentation for your added knowledge / learning.

Configure Basic Settings (Optional but recommended)

There are currently some settings you need to review before moving on. Read this dedicated guide on configuring basic settings.

Configure Remote Storage (Optional but recommended)

Prime Mover PRO version supports two cloud storage solutions: Dropbox and Google Drive. Remote storage allows you to export your backups or migration packages TO these cloud platforms.

You can also restore and migrate your packages FROM these cloud platforms. These platforms are very stable and solid, so downloading and uploading to these remote storage are usually very fast.

You can enable both or only one of them. Below are the documentations for configuring these remote storage.

NOTE: Only if you have successfully configured these remote storage solutions where “Export to DropBox” or “Export to Google Drive” will appear on the Export options. If you don’t configure these remote storage – these checkbox will not appear.

Note on Prime Mover authorization and encryption keys

These are auto-configured upon PRO version license activation – so you don’t need to deal with these settings unless absolutely necessary. To take advantage of full automatic configuration – you should update to at least Prime Mover PRO 1.6.0+.

Export and Restore Package

Now everything is configured, you can now export and restore package using remote URL feature OR export and restore packages via backup manager (available starting version 1.0.7).
