Move or copy a WordPress site to another server or to another domain name, move to/from local server hosting, and backup sites.
After 2 hours of trying to create a back up i'm giving up. It just hangs and times out. Complete and utter waste of time on a very very urgent job.
Update 11-06-14: Tried this plugin again with a completely different WP site. SAME RESULT.
I tried this plugin after WP Move failed.
I started the backup and got it to work even though you do not get a confirmation that it is done. I simply got a white screen on both firefox and chrome. I nevertheless saw a backup created so I proceeded with the import.
copy and pasting the URL is easy but after starting the import I only got.... a white screen. I hit reload and got the 5 minute wordpress install screen. good thing this was only a test...
I guess I will have to copy everything manually with FTP and phpmyadmin, the current plugins to move wordpress seem to be broken with 3.8.
Tried to clone from server to my local and server to AWS - both cases BACKUP seems to work or at least gives no error messages. Both cases give the same error in the RESTORE phase about an invalid phase. Restore starts and finishes peacefully, no crash, but errors out.
I had high hopes for this, but I didn't get past the backup step. I got an error message that said: MySQL server has gone away.
Will try something else.
This plugin ruined two installations for me. It didn't work, and even after deleting the plugin I have issues where I cannot add new plugins.
I found many issues by using this plugin.
