Bedrock is a modern WordPress stack that gets you started with the best development tools, practices, and project structure.
This post will be a little light on descriptions as it's fairly straightforward to move an existing WordPress project into a Bedrock stack. It's mostly moving directories around.
Backup the existing database
Always a good idea before messing with the database and performing a lot of updates.
$ mysqldump [database] -u [user] -p | bzip2 -c > [database]-$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H.%M.%S).sql.bz2
Update the database
Replace all instances of wp-content with app
> UPDATE `wp_posts` set `guid` = replace(`guid`,'wp-content/uploads/','app/uploads/');
And again for post_content:
> UPDATE `wp_posts` set `post_content` = replace(`post_content`,'wp-content/uploads/','app/uploads/');
Moving plugins to composer.json
"wpackagist-plugin/wp-instagram-widget": "^1.9", "wpackagist-plugin/akismet": "^3.1", "wpackagist-plugin/amazon-link-engine": "^1.2", "wpackagist-plugin/google-analytics-for-wordpress": "^5.5", "wpackagist-plugin/jetpack": "^4.0", "wpackagist-plugin/w3-total-cache": "0.9.4.1", "wpackagist-plugin/wordpress-seo": "^3.3", ...
$ cp -r ./wp-content/themes/[theme name] [bedrock]/web/wp/wp-content/themes
And just like that we're now running a Bedrock based wordpress installation.
