Support » Plugin: Migrate WordPress Website & Backups - Prime Mover » Clone subsite to new subsite (same multisite)

  • Resolved wasanajones


    thanks for the great features of your plugin

    I got a little lost figuring out what I could do

    Can I use it to clone various subsites on a multisite and create a new subsite on the same multisite network?

    I tried testing with subsite backup – but that doesn’t seem right

    Hi, thanks for using Prime Mover plugin! I see that you want to clone an existing subsite to a new subsite on the same multisite. This is possible but you need the new subsite to use a newly creaed blog ID. For example:

    1. Say an existing subsite with ID 3 that you want to clone to a new subsite.
    2. First, you create a new blank subsite with Network Admin -> Sites -> All Sites-> Add New.
    3. Take note of the blog ID of the newly created subsite. This is your target blog ID. You can read this tutorial on how to get the target blog ID of the new subsite.
    4. Once you know the target blog ID, click the Export button of the source subsite (blog ID: 3 in this case). Select first the export option (e.g. complete package). And then select Export multisite format.
    5. In the target blog ID field, enter the blog ID of the newly created subsite which you have created in the previous steps.
    6. Click Export Now
    7. Once the export package is created, restore it to the newly created subsite. There should no mismatch errors since the blog ID is matched.
    8. Done, the result is that newly created blog is the clone of the subsite blog ID 3 (in this case example).

    That’s it. This should work. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! 🙂
