WP Duplicate (Formerly LocalSync) provides you with the easiest and the fastest way to clone or migrate a site from one server to another with the click of a button.
The migration process is highly reliable and is proven to migrate bigger sites without any errors.
Why WP Duplicate?
Simplest Cloning Tool
Just install the WP Duplicate plugin on the destination site and the live site and start syncing, no need to enter FTP details.
Only the changed files are cloned from the source site to the destination site. So the cloning process is faster.
Load Images From Live Site
With WP Duplicate you can directly load the images of Live site, so that you do not need to copy media files which will save a lot of time during the cloning process.
Clone Live Site To Local Computer
With WP Duplicate you can clone any production site to your Local Computer (MAMP, LAMP, XAMP, etc..).
- Spin off a WP site on the destination server.
- Install and activate the “WP Duplicate Plugin” on the WP site created as mentioned above.
- Go to “WP admin dashboard -> WP Duplicate” and select “This is duplicate site” button.
- Install and activate “WP Duplicate Plugin” on the live WP site.
- Go to “WP admin dashboard -> WP Duplicate” and select “This is prod site” button.
- Login with your WP Duplicate account (created on https://localsync.io) on the live WP site.
- Copy the prod key and go to the “WP admin dashboard -> WP Duplicate” on the local WP site.
- Paste the prod key, and Add Site.
- Now you are ready to copy the live site to the duplicate site.
Can I clone the site to the local Computer?
Yes, you can clone the live site to the WP site on your local desktop server.
