    What would be the best way to copy an entire wordpress site to a test server?

    Copy all of the files and take a dump of the database.

    Then on the new host, upload the files and load the SQL dump to a new databse, then change the DB details in your wp-config.php file. From there you might also need to change the URl in the database if you're accessing it on a differnt domain name.
