MU-PLUGINS

Mu-plugins are PHP files containing snippets of code that load automatically on every page of your WordPress. WPScale mu-plugins increase security, add useful features and speed up your WordPress.

When creating a WordPress via or migrating with WPScale Migration, the folder is copied, so you don't have to worry about it.

Download the "mu-plugins" zipped file below, unzip the folder on your computer and transfer it in full via FTP to the /wp-content/ directory of your WordPress. This should give you "/wp-content/mu-plugins/". There's nothing to activate for them to work.

Recommended plugins

Here is the list of plugins to install once your transfer is complete.

Install and activate the following 3 plugins :

  • Block Bad Queries to protect your WordPress.
  • Optimus to compress and optimise all your images for free (we offer the paid version).
  • WPS Hide Login to avoid brute force attacks on the WordPress administration login URL.

Change URLs quickly :

Method 1 : With WP-CLI

For more experienced users, you can change your links in the command line with WP-CLI via the expert mode available in the WPScale console. The following example command lets you change your links : wp search-replace 'https://www.site1.fr' 'https://www.site2.fr'. (source : https://developer.wordpress.org)

Method 2 : With DBSR and SRDB

DBSR or SRDB are scripts that let you simply replace any value in your WordPress database with another of your choice. They’re very useful, for example, to replace URLs with others.
