I am an active community member and passionate concrete5 developer. My goal is to make useful, high quality add-ons to make your business more succesful and to grow concrete5. In case you are looking for a developer, I am available for work!

Migrate is a developers add-on. It can be used to copy a remote database to your current environment. For example, you can 'pull' a database from your production environment (live website) to your local development environment.

How it works

The add-on should be installed on both instances, so e.g. the production and local instance. They communicate via HTTP(S) and authenticate with a token. It's needed to enable pulling via a dashboard page first, in order to start using the add-on.

You can start a database pull via the CLI (Command Line Interface). If you're not familiar with this, I highly recommend using it. After you've created a profile (name, url, token), you can issue the 'pull' CLI command. That command will go through various steps such as creating a new database, creating the database structure, importing all records, and activating the new database. Please see the FAQ page for more information.


  • concrete5 8.2.1+
  • A database user that has the privileges to create databases and to drop databases (e.g. 'root'...)


  • The license is for multiple sites. Once bought it may be used on all your websites.
  • Once the pull is completed, the add-on writes to your application/config/database.php file to change the database (and thus the active database).
  • I recommend this add-on for relatively small databases. That is because data is transported via HTTP(S), which might take a while, but also because of data integrity. The tables are not locked during export. For bigger database, use mysqldump.
