Importing using the Acquia Connector

To import your existing website to Acquia Cloud using the Acquia Connector, complete the following steps:

  1. Prepare your website before you export it from your current environment.

  2. Ensure that Acquia Connector Connector version 2.2 or later is installed.

  3. Migrate your website into the Dev environment. Acquia Cloud commits your website code to your Acquia Cloud code repository, installs your database, and uploads your files.

  4. Check out a local copy of the repository using Subversion (SVN) or Git.

You can also import an existing website manually using the mysqldump command and import your files using SFTP, scp, or rsync.
