    We are re-designing our website on a subdomain test site.
    On the test site we installed You-theme and Visual Composer. On the live site we have an old Genesis theme.

    Is there a way through database copy and/or inserting, to integrate the test site into our live site, once we installed both You theme as VC?

    If not, what is the best way to migrate those adjusted pages from test site to live site?
    Is it also possible to migrate the templates we made on the test site, into the live site?

    Hi @hansplanje

    The best option is to export the database from the test site and import it to the live site. Once done, you then copy the themes/ folder from the test site to the live site.

    This is assuming that the test site is a complete replica of the live site and the live site was not updated while you are building the test site.

    You can also use a “migration” plugin to help you easily clone both sites vice versa, or you can coordinate with your hosting provider as some offers migration services for free or with a fee.
