Discussion on: How to unpack .wpress archive files created by the All-in-one-Wp-Migration Wordpress plugin

The reverse direction (creating a .wpress file from a directory) is a bit more complicated.
Inside the .wpress file are stored some metadata (e.g. installed plugins, Wordpress version etc.) that are not available in a local file context.
When providing this metadata manually, it would be possible to create a .wpress file.
But this is out of scope for me since I currently have no time to extend the tool further.
