Copy WP Site To A NEW URL Directory

  • Hi,

    I was wondering how and also if it is possible to copy a site which I have on a URL to another URL?

    I would like to change the content, change a plugin and leave the theme and structure intact.

    Many Thanks in Advance,

    J.J.

    Well, it sounds like you just need the theme. In that case you can just upload the theme to the new host/domain using FTP and activate it there. Like that the theme = structure stays the same. Or did you mean something else? To keep widgets in the same position but leave the content behind I would not know a nice solution…

    In short, I would like to duplicate the site on a different URL

    Just use a new WordPress installation and your theme. Like that you have the same site and no content. Other option is to copy all files and the database. The latter is a full copy.

    Cheers Rhand,

    It’s the later that I look for.

    So will give that a try, However, do I need to amend any of the settings in the backend, and if so HOW?
