Move a WordPress Site with the Duplicator Plugin
There are a lot of migration systems for WordPress. We’ve had lots of good experiences with All-in-One WP Migration. Some people swear by WP Migrate DB Pro.

With WordPress 4.9, you now get a warning when you’re about to make a change in the file editors in the WordPress back-end. (For those not following, I’m talking about the editor that you can find at Appearance > Editor, or Plugins > Editor on most WordPress sites.) This is great first-step, and does end one of arguments for disallowing editing of files in the WordPress admin side of the site. That is: people won’t know what that they could break their site when they make changes on those pages.
