Duplicate, clone, backup, move and transfer an entire site from one location to another.
Had three problems.
Internal server error:
Solved - Change directory permissions to 0x755, change file permissions to 0x644.
Safe Mode failed:
Solved - add php.ini in same directory where installer.php will run from with the following setting: safe_mode=off
Installed in wrong path:
I copied the archive and installer.php files to a new sub-directory. After running the installer and expecting the site would install in the root, it didn't. Cleaned up structure of bad install, then re-installed, ensuring/expecting to install in the root. Same prob. Deleted bad install structure and just moved the archive and installer files to the root and ran again. All went well! I would expect the installer could run from any sub-dir, and replicate the site in a directory of choice. For this reason, 4-stars.
Altogether, this is an EXCELLENT plugin!
Plugin très pratique pour cloner un site, par exemple pour y travailler en local. Plus besoin de montage compliqué, il suffit de "Duplicatorer" le site et, à l'aide de l'installeur fourni, l'installer en local sous WAMP, XAMP, ...
Tout est automatique (à part la création de la base de données) et les explications d'emploi sont claires,notamment la vidéo, même si elles n'existent qu'en anglais.
Mériterait tout de même une aide sur les erreurs ou warnings détectés lors de la phase de pré-installation.
Dans tous les cas un plugin à recommander vivement !
This really saved me another bottle of Exedrin when I couldn't figure out what was wrong with my display content when I came across this plugin. Worked pretty darn well.
I would give it five stars but for a couple of issues.
1) This one is trivial but it didn't reset my site address and wordpress address to the new host name.
2) The second was easy to fix but the package that was created only grabbed my folders and not their content. Not sure why, if I missed a setting or something, but I didn't change much except for add a couple directories to exclude because of byte sizes being too large which it did.
All in all, pretty good stuff and nice interface.
It's amazing easy backup and restore wordpress
thank you Cory for such a great and useful plugin.
I've only given 4 stars, it would be great to see the functionality extended to scheduled backups.
All the other backup I've seen require lengthy steps to get the site back up and running, and even then, they are often missing theme options, settings etc.
If the Duplicator plugin s=could be scheduled to run even daily, this would be excellent.
A great convenience. It works, and it is faster than I could do it myself with the tools I have available on a shared host. Plus, it saves me from having to learn what settings (after I fix up wp-config), I need to fix up to point to the new file location. I'm new to wordpress, and feeling a little lazy today.
Great plugin for migrating sites or make backups of sites.
Duplicator is so easy to use, I backup my site each time i update WordPress or a plugin. Duplicator seems to be working great with WP 3.8, although it is only listed as compatible up til WP 3.5.2.
Just moved a site from staging to a live environment. Worked *almost* perfectly! I would have hated going through all of the data transfers and database copying. Duplicator really simplified things.
Do note that the support for plugins is not so great. Theme my plugin, for example, does not like to change domain names. Disabled before moving worked just fine. Thanks for the awesome plugin!
Only thing I miss is empty-database requeriment. I need to backup database with another wordpress installed with prefix mainwp_, use your plugin and after that restore my previous mainwp_ backup.
All the rest, excellent!
