Migrate bedrock database to vanilla WP instance

My bedrock project isn’t compatible with my client’s chosen hosting option (wpengine), is there a simple way to migrate the database to another vanilla WP instance easily? Thanks.

Move the database from Bedrock to your vanilla WP instance. What’s the problem?

You’ll probably just need to do a search-replace of /app/uploads to /wp-content/uploads.


Thanks Ben.

For anyone who stumbled upon the same issue, you need to alter a couple of entries in your database within the wp_options table. Edit both home and site_url to reflect your new environment’s host address.

You’d need to do this regardless. Just pointing out it’s not a Bedrock specific issue, glad you got it sorted.


Yes, absolutely. Noob mistake.
