In this tutorial we are going to extract an .wpress which is not working properly during migration or installation of the backup.

Step : 1

Download .exe file which is needed from the following link. Download

Step : 2

After completion of download create a folder in desired location that may be in c drive extractor.

Eg : C:\Wordpress-Backup

Step : 3

Copy the downloaded extractor to that directory

Eg : C:\Wordpress-Backup

Step : 4

  1. Open run by pressing windows + R button in your keyboard.
  2. In run type cmd and press enter key.
  3. Open up a command prompt.
  4. CD into the directory you just created, let’s say its in C:\Wordpress-Backup folder of your pc.
  5. The command you’ll run would be cd C:\Wordpress-Backup in your command prompt.
  6. Now run the following command wpress-extractor . For example my .wpress file was filename.wpress so the command I ran was wpress-extractor filename.wpress.
  7. You’ll find your files extracted into the same directory where the extractor was run. In my case it was C:\Wordpress-Backup.

Here is the extractor download link

    Yes I found this info already in an old locked thread, but this sees recent so I can ask a question 😉

    Does the All-in-one-Wp-Migration plugin actually stor the WP core (root) files? In the backup I made, I cannot find that after decompressing the way you described.

    I need to know that after a WP update that gives problems, this backup also restpores WP core.

      No the all one wp migrator will never take the backup of your WordPress core so you cannot find out the WordPress core in the decompressed files.
      The problem you are facing is you are unable to restore the backup right ?

      Hope you are doing well. For running the extracted files you need to set up the database and install it then you can connect it with the new database you have created and then delete the wp-content folder and then upload the extracted one.
      If you are having issues please let me know.

      Note: Before deleting any directory please take backup of site.

    I successfully extracted my wpress file. Once I remove the folders I don’t need in the file, how do I compress the files back into a new, smaller wpress file? Can’t find anything on the web that explains it so I can understand.

      Thanks for your comment.
      If you need to recompress the extracted one that is not possible to do directly. To recompress it into a smaller wpress you need to set up WordPress website with the files you have extracted and create a new back up using all in one wp migratory so that you will get a less size WordPress website.

    It’s showing me the following error comment,

    wpress-extractor’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    Hi, I too am getting:
    wpress-extractor’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    I think the problem is with running under Windows 7.
    Can anyone confirm it will run? Or is there any other extractor ok for win7?

    Thanks
