Desktop Server Support is Excellent
By ,

I am greatly impressed with the support the Desktop Server staff provides.
They follow up quickly, and willing to help when the problem is a bit outside of their tools and plugin.

Desktop Server creates a simulated server environment on your computer.
I use Duplicator to create archive zip packages of live sites, which Desktop server will import and I can work on an offline copy of the site.

This plugin simplifies the reversal process and allows you to replace your live copy with the one in your desktop environment.

This works as a back up with the added advantage that you can see that your back up copy is actually functional.

I use Vaultpress and Woocommerce, and you would expect reasonable level of support. Neither does a very good job compared to Desktop Server staff.
I am dropping VaultPress due to the lack of support. The other problem with Vaultpress is that the back up file is good only within the Vaultpress system, it does not work as a 'normal' archive.

The 100 bucks for Desktop Server is well worth the cost. I highly recommend their product.

I can't recommend this more highly. Totally worth the money - makes it super easy for me to develop my WP Sites offline, and then migrate them live. For goodness sake, you literally just make offline site, buy a domain, download WP to that domain, download the DesktopServer plugin to that domain, and then hit "transfer" and your site is up and running on your new domain. I love this thing - has made my life dramatically easier.

DesktopServer for local development/install as well as the WP plugin, DesktopServer for WordPress are great tools. So much easier than MAMP for local development and huge time saving tools for deployment and more.

Gone are the days of MAMP Pro, and BackupBuddy. DesktopServer for WordPress is the king :) This plugin helps with automatic fetching of setup data for DesktopServer when exporting to live server.
