This plugin really does what it promises. It works perfectly. I encounter some issues but it was very simple to fix. It is great! All the plugins with their settings, the appearance, posts, pages, comments, pictures, everything has been fully and effectively cloned.
Thanks for this plugin!

Having spent the last two days trying to clone a website for development purposes using a different plugin, I came across this one and within 10 minutes had the site cloned and working. Thank you!

I wish this was part of WordPress

It would have saved me so many annoyances and so much time, THIS is how it should be -- make a copy of your live site (effortlessly!), reconfigure to your heart's content, transfer it back -- effortlessly!

Now, it doesn't work on all servers -- but even though that's a fairly serious flaw, I'm still giving it five stars because of how brilliantly easy it makes things when it *does* work. What this plugin does, is fix the truly terrible native import/export functionality provided with WP.

The only thing that would make it more awesome would be if you could select whether to copy the content or not, so it would be easier to restore from a dev site to a live site without overwriting any changes in the interim.

But I'm not complaining! This plugin lets me move WP sites by clicking my mouse a few times. That in itself is amazing.

Really quick

Definitely use this plugin if you need to move or copy your WP site to another domain or URL. It said may take a few minutes, but it only took a few seconds! Incredibly easy and cloned it exactly bit by bit. Recommend 100%!

hi guys
this is perfect!

all of my websites are cloned and transferred with in my new hosting and it works perfectly and smooth.

(unlike the other duplicator/cloner/backuper or whatever they called their product, they're hard to use and always broken.)

thanks gazillions who created this amazing plugin pretty easy to use :D

Underwhelmed
By , for WP 3.9.1

In April 2014, I used this plugin to migrate a site from a production to locally hosted server, and had reasonable success. At the time, I gave the plugin 4 stars. Recent experience using the plugin to move a locally hosted site to a production server was a long, frustrating, time-consuming experience. Copying & pasting the url in the plugin on the production side continually threw an error message 'Incompatible archive'. Since this type of error has been around a while, it surprises me the plugin authors haven't seen fit to address it properly. When I was able to restore my site on the production server, much of the site's written content was missing. I had to upload my db backup from my localhost and overwrite the production server db tables to get the rest of the content up and running. My difficulties may be confined to my hosting service (GoDaddy). I will try using the WPC again with a different hosting service, and see if I get a better result. At this time, I'm open to trying a different plugin to help move site files and databases.

Works like a charm
By , for WP 3.9

I used to have to manually change the WordPress URL and the access both databases through phpmysql. This plugin saved me a lot of time.

Just remember, to copy over your plugins and themes folder to the new WordPress install via FTP.

WP Clone will copy over all of your users, posts, content and images.

Fantastic.
