WordPress with Elementor Pro Install on BlueHost VPS



New Member
Trying to avoid the ubiquitous finger pointing or he-said/she-said between support at all three of BlueHost, WordPress and Elementor; so, I'm appealing to any users who have successfully installed using the three together, and how they made them work. Been doing websites for many years, but first time I've attempted all three together.
Using Hello Elementor Child Theme. Developed the site locally on XAMMP. System info:

Transfer attempts were done with both Filezilla as well as All-in-One WP Migration. Also tried the BH auto-installer for WP. Either way, running into issues from cannot save edits after transferring and cannot attch to database. Double and triple=checked settings. Getting frustrated. So, without getting off onto tangents, would like to hear from anyone who had initial issues with these combined items.

Thanks in advance.


Filezilla I can understand issues going that way, All-in-One use it 4-5 times a day no problems, I had issue with XAMPP some time back and it was getting rather bloated for local dev stuff. So moved to Laragon (really fast & clean dev tool)

Not had the 3 things together like your self, how big is your all-in-one file?

You could try dropping your php version back to 7

You can post your url like mywebsite dot com/mypage

Finally found a solution that worked without extra research: Duplicator.
Thanks for the insights!
