instantwp and/or wpdesktop review etc (3 posts)

    Hello, I have been getting more web site designer clients than I expected. I need to find a way to work faster. I have been making web sites using instantwp then I could quickly repeat myself onto the wordpress online. Most have been small local business word press sites.

    I would love to get some feedback on http://wpdesktop.com/ It looks like a fast easy way to move the themes from instantwp http://www.instantwp.com/ to the web hosting.

    I've also been looking at http://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

    Any advice or thoughts on the best way to move wordpress for local to their live host. And/or management software?

    I understand how to set up a database in cpanel and how to use ftp but I'm more of a 3D designer and only doing this as a side job for local small business who want a wordpress site they can post on.

    Thank you for your time
    Kimberly

    There are many ways to do this; here is my method:

    - build the client site online in a sub directory of my hosting account
    - this way, it is easy to get their feedback
    - once they are satisfied, and the balance of the contracted amount has shown up in my "available balance", I simply manually copy it to their hosting account; takes about 10 minutes, tops.

    If one were to be doing this "numerous times" per day, then yes, some "automation" may be beneficial. Your "mileage" may vary :)

    Hi, thanks for the input. By manually, do you mean back up the wordpress files then import them into the new wordpress?

    Thanks
    Kimberly
