Overview

Duplicator enables you to:

  • Move, migrate or clone a WordPress site between domains or hosts
  • Pull down a live site to localhost for development
  • 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 pre-configured 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 pre-configured sites!

    Brilliant – no other word for it

    I’ve been migrating development builds for years and this plugin is by far the easiest, headache-free way to migrate ANY install! Very well done, very impressed and put a big smile on my face in terms of how easy it was to transfer my first site. Keep up the great work!

    Thoroughly excellent, also for http to https move

    I’ve been using it to backup and move among servers a number of small to medium-sized wordpress websites. It always worked great.
    I tried to use it to move a website from http to https remaining on the same server, and did the job without any issue. I don’t get why all the somewhat more complex how-to scattered online for moving wordpress from http to https don’t mention this plugin as by far the easiest and safest solution for a large number of websites.
    Crucially, even if for any reason this didn’t work, it would still cause no damage, and would leave the previous http website working as usual.

    by far…

    … The most flexible, sure-fired means to ensure good, reliable backups (and restores). It takes the burden of maintaining development/staging/production environments. I’ve relied on the pro version on too-many occasions to number, and it has never let me down. Simply excellent.
