A video to get you started

To merge staging and real site:

Step 1: Sign in to your BlogVault account.

Step 2: On the BlogVault site listing page, select the website that you want to work on.


Step 3: It'll take you to the site details page. On this page, go to the under the Staging section, you will find the Merge option. Click this to begin the Merging process.

Step 4: BlogVault generates a page where you can view the differences between the staging site and the live site. You can cancel Merging process at any time. You can also continue using BlogVault dashboard by clicking Return to Site Details Page.

Step 5: On this page, you can see all the tables in 2 columns. The first column contains tables from Staging site and the right side table contains tables from the live website.

Step 6:  You can click on Plugins to see the differences between the old versions and the new version.

The modified tables files on the list are already sorted under categories such as plugin, theme, core, uploads, and others, making it easy to review the changes. Additional information such as versions of each of your plugins and themes is also provided.

Step 7: You can view changes made to individual files, thus allowing you to review the file line by line. We don’t miss even a single change in the files on your staging site.

The files marked in Red have been Deleted in your Staging site.

The files marked in Green have been Added to your Staging site Site Title/ URL.

The files marked in Blue have been Changed in your Staging site.

Step 8: Select the files, plugins, themes, and tables you want to migrate to the live site. This prevents any unwanted files from being copied to your live site. 

Step 9: Click Continue

Step 10: Your site will continue to merge even if you exit the browser.

Step 11: Your Website Merge is completed.
