Sync WordPress database and uploads from live / local

We use WP Migrate Pro to sync WordPress database and uploads from live to local. We have a developer licence so can take advantage of the add ons needed to sync uploads.

Before using WP Migrate Pro we had to constantly download databases and media files then set them up locally which took lots of time especially if the site is regularly updated.

The plugin website can be found here: https://deliciousbrains.com/wp-migrate-db-pro/
