Echo Media is partnered with Seahorse for the development of software that allows for simple migration & management of WordPress in AWS.
What is it?
Seahorse is software that automates the process of moving a WordPress site from any WebHost to AWS Lightsail. WP Managers can simply install the software on a WP website (located anywhere) and push a copy to AWS in under 10 minutes. What’s more, once on AWS, the software allows for management of the web server from within the WordPress interface.
How does it work?
A copy of the WordPress site is automatically generated and uploaded to your own (the customer) AWS account. This uploaded copy is then used to automatically build a webserver instance on AWS Lightsail, in your own AWS account. A connection is maintained between the copied WordPress website and the AWS server allowing for control panel management of the AWS web server instance directly from within WordPress, without having to log in to your AWS account.
Users can try the process free of charge by requesting a Licence, installing the software provided, and running the process. If satisfied with the outcome, users can then choose to purchase a license to clone their site to their own AWS account. This is a cloning (copy) process so the source site remains unaffected throughout.
