    Hi there

    We have a site http://79.170.40.230/ref-travelcircle.co.uk/ and we would like to clone this site to be http://79.170.40.230/luxurytravelmarket.co.uk/

    Both sites are exactly the same site but on different domains.

    How can we do this easily and efficiently.

    install wordpress on the new domain, copy the "wp-content" folder from the old domain to the new domain.
    export your old site (tools -> export)
    and import the resulting XML file with this plugin on the new domain (tools -> Import -> WordPress importer)
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-importer/

    risk of running both sites at the same time: with same content is a google dublicate penalty due to copied content on both domains. You may consider a permanent redirect.
