Migration with plugin
Do you want to use a site migration plugin to move your website? It is important to use a plugin that can replace absolute URLs.
Replace URL behavior – You should consider that add_post_meta of Elementor transfers the JSON escaped strings with the wp_unslash function of WP. Besides, you can find the code located in WP-content > Elementor > Includes > Utils to avoid issues.
WP CLI – You are able to check integration with WP CLI in order to migrate your websites.
