Excellent Plugin!
By , for WP 3.3.1

I installed WP Clone on a live site using WP 3.3.1 and was able to copy the entire site to an installation on localhost in just a few minutes. The process was extremely simple. This is an excellent plugin!

I did experience just one issue with Contact Form 7, however. An error message was displayed and the site did not display correctly until I deactivated that plugin. I removed the Contact Form 7 plugin and then installed the latest version and the site is now working perfectly in its offline location on localhost.

I then did a manual upgrade of WP to version 3.5.2, and I also updated all of my other plugins. Again, all is working perfectly. WP Clone allowed me to copy my entire organizational website to the offline location to test these upgrades. It's a great tool ... a first class plugin!

A Life Saver

This plugin is super awesome. It beats downloading a copy via Dreamweaver FTP because it keeps a copy of all the backup that was created. Makes cloning from dev to live site real easy! Thanks for creating this!

Ridiculously EASY !!
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin makes moving a website to another host easier to use than almost all of the commercial plugins as well as the top free downloads like Duplicator and WP Move -- which are excellent in their own right.

The key here to use this plugin is that you must set up your NEW SERVER first with a pre-existing WordPress installation
as you need this plugin on both the site to be cloned as well as the Target server... url domain name does not matter.

You don't even need to upload a installation script to the new server or use FTP believe it or not. These guys have made the entire process totally painless with just a few clicks and URL links. Virtually fool proof! Great Job !!! Tested and works fine with WP 3.6+ and latest PHP 5.2 and 5.3 Bravo! The ONE Stars reviews must be have some serious hosting issues. Worked fine on LINUX based shared hosting servers. Clearly this is a superior solution for developers who want an alternative to a >$100 / Yr commercial plugin.

At the beginning i couldn't Restore Backup from given link, then, i downloaded database and uploaded to new site (there where i wanted to migrate my wp site) under the same folder
wp-content/uploads/wp-clone/, so at the new site i choose Restore Backup from this fresh uploaded database and it worked! I just had to re-upload and activate plugins (they were missign i don't know why).

Brilliant work,
Best regards

Too Good to be true..... best plugin
By , for WP 3.5.2

I had been looking for something like this for more than a month and I am glad that I found this plugin. It does precisely what it says and with wonderful ease. No need to change the wordpress tables and links to the old sites, no need for any of the complicated stuff shown on the other sites. What is even great about it is that it copies all your plugins, including woocommerce, all products along with their SEO. Simply superb, you guys rock!!
