[resolved] I want to create 'done for you' blogs, can I use this plugin for that? (8 posts)

    OK let me explain....

    I want to create 'done for you' blogs for my clients as in I create a site once then just copy it and give it to / sell it to multiple different clients so they get an EXACT clone of the original site including theme, plugins, content, images, EVERYTHING.

    I create the site once, turn into a zip file, and then give them the zip so they can upload to their servers.

    Would your plugin allow me to do this essentially?

    I know that's not really the plugins core use but would it allow me to copy a site I've made and then give the zip to multiple clients who can then upload to their own servers and do as they please with?

    Hope it all makes sense.

    Thanks.

    The creation of the zip file will done by the plugin (with database and files). But on the extraction, by the Client, there are some additonal tasks to do. The tasks needs WordPress, so that it can work under a other urls and so on (Databaes connection Parameters/ Databse import / ...).

    In feature, we plan a restore feature that will do many of this tasks for you.

    So as long as the client has WordPress installed they will be able to simply upload the zip file I send to them and they'll have the theme, plugins, content, images etc?

    Yes, but uploads have a corosponding entry in the database.

    I don't understand what you mean? I'm not very technical so can you explain what you mean in very simple English.

    Thanks.

    All files in the Media list has a Database entry and a file in the uploads folder. That means it is not enough to upload the files under uploads with ftp.

    I don't understand?

    So what do they have to do?

    Plainly no, it wouldn't.

    Not being “very technical” is absolutely fine, of course, but can you really expect to be able to put together a package like you're aiming to then?

    WordPress is an application that works with files and a database. You can't just zip a number of files, unzip it and expect it to work without importing the database tables into a new database.

    I'm marking this topic as resolved as the main question from above whether the task is achievable with BackWPup has been answered.
