Overview

Duplicator is the most powerful migrator available. It enables you to:

  • Move, migrate or clone a WordPress site between domains or hosts with zero downtime
  • Pull down a live site to localhost for development
  • Transfer a WordPress site from one host to another
  • Manually backup a WordPress site or parts of a site
  • Duplicate a live site to a staging area or vice versa
  • Bundle up an entire WordPress site for easy reuse or distribution
  • Perform a full WordPress migration without struggling with messy import/export sql scripts

Migrate WordPress and Run WordPress Backups

Duplicator creates a package that bundles all the site’s plugins, themes, content, database and WordPress files into a simple zip file called a package. This package can then be used to easily migrate a WordPress site to any location you wish. Move on the same server, across servers and pretty much any location a WordPress site can be hosted. WordPress is not required for installation since the package contains all site files.

Improve Your Workflow with Pre-Bundled Sites

Duplicator lets you make your own preconfigured sites to eliminate rework. Instead of manually configuring your favorite theme, set of plugins or content over and over, now just configure a single site and bundle it up into a Duplicator package. Once you have the bundled site, you can migrate the WordPress site over and over to different locations to instantly create many preconfigured sites!

    I spent 1 whold day trying to manually migrate my local website made with elementor and was facing lots of url problems, elementor not opening anymore on some pages, broken layout...So I decided to give duplicator a try, as I saw a tutorial on elementor website. In 0.5 hr I replaced my broken installation with a brand new perfect one. Thanks a ton. Made my day!

    I have not had good luck with other WP migration tools. When I found this one, I was really amazed. After watching a quick tutorial, I easily migrated my site from one host to another in a very short amount of time, and without any issues. I am still shocked at how easy the whole process was. Disclaimer: I am familiar with FTP and MySQL databases. I can potentially see the process being confusing for people who are not experienced with FTP, and do not know how to add or edit users for a MySQL database.

    I thought I'd give this a try instead of cloning file and DB by hand and using a DB script to update. And I was pleasantly surprised - it worked fine. OK after the duplication I got 500 errors, but that was just because I'd renamed the cpanel generated .htaccess and .user.ini files ahead of the process. Just merged in the former and put the latter back in place and it sprang into life. But if you're playing with files like that and don't know what they are there for then you shouldn't be duplicating websites, even with a plugin like this. I'll use plugin again in future and will consider Pro version to show some support in the future. Thanks folks for saving me a bunch of time this morning.
