WP-Copy (Free)

Moves your WordPress site from a domain to another one without pains.

WP-Copy is a script that helps you move your WordPress site to a new domain by taking care of the hard work.


  • Copies the files and the database: all of your files and database tables (both WP and non-WP ones) are copied across;
  • Fixes permalinks: replaces the old URLs in the database with the new URLs;
  • Copies the files as zip archive: one single compressed file upload is uploaded on the remote host;
  • Imports database in chunks, so if you got a big database file - no worries wp-copy will sort that for you;
  • Protects the files during upload: automatically places an index file in the root of the remote site, so no uninvited visitors can see your files during the transfer;
  • FTPES (FTP over SSL) support: supports both FTP active/passive modes as well as FTP over SSL;

The PRO version also does:

  • Fixes serialized urls in database: in case you got custom menus they'll still work;
  • Re-generates the htaccess file on the remote site, so you don't have to log in again and re-generate it yourself;
  • Works with PHP 5.2;

Or get WP-Deploy for even more satisfaction:

  • Instantly create snapshots of your site;
  • More control over copying, select which folders and database tables you want to ignore;
  • Save the remote server credentials and re-use them anytime;
  • Run cron jobs to automate backups/copying/deployments;
