[Resolved] [Plugin: Duplicator] Multi User environment vs. single user environment

  • Hi,
    According to the video tutorial, Duplicator will grab all WordPress files and the database.
    What happens in a multi user environment? Will Duplicator grab the database corresponding to one user or all users that are part of that environment? Ideally, I would want to move my WordPress blog to a different location and grab the database that pertains to my blog and nothing else.
    Thanks for all the support and keep up the good work!

  • In my situation (running multiple sites in the same environment) is that Duplicator grabs the entire database. It doesn’t separate between the individual sites, so you may have a fairly large database dump.

    Optionally, you could use a different database backup plugin to get the specific site’s data you need. This still doesn’t solve the issue of the initial database dump produced by Duplicator.

    Perhaps an additional feature for a future release.

    Thanks, that makes sense.
    I was hoping to use duplicator to migrate a blog which is currently on our wp2 server with thousands of blog entries and pictures to our wp 3 server; duplicator would have made that process easier since I wouldn’t have had to deal with reuploading the pictures to the wp3 server.

    Hi ndragu,

    Right now the Duplicator works well for small sites. It currently uses the PHP ZipArchive class which runs into issues when packages get to be over 2GB in size. In future release I hope to break out the logic so it is more robust to handle the larger sites. As far as the multiple sites support I haven’t done any testing with this scenario so I’m not sure what the results might be.

    Thanks for the feedback!
