Our client has a need for 13 identical sites for their network of companies. In addition to needing duplicate sites, these need to be unique domains, not subdomains, so we plan on using the domain mapping plugin.
We have created the first test site using a subdomain, everything is perfect and ready to go. At this point, I have 2 questions on how to proceed correctly:
1) How do we transfer the entire test site from the subdomain to the real domain? The domains we will be putting the live sites on are already live so we need minimal downtime.
2) How do I duplicate the entire site (we don't need posts transferred, but we need all pages, plugins, custom theme menu, and database info duplicated).
We do not typically work in Multisite so I am unsure about the correct course of action to take.
Thanks in advance :)
