  • I’ve been very successful at cloning WordPress systems for over 4 years now, on a half dozen different web hosting services. I recently discovered this plugin, which makes life a lot easier for me: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/duplicator/
    What it does, it does better than I could do manually.

    I didn’t take the time to read through the Post you mention as it was originally written 5 years ago and times change so quickly with WordPress.

    what about doing it the old school way? 🙂

    Things move so quickly, 5 years is an eternity with WordPress. Whether it is Plugins or Themes that haven’t been updated in 5 years. Or documentation. It probably won’t work. Because the “right way” to do something 5 years ago might not even work today because WordPress doesn’t work that way anymore. It can go as far as a plugin’s call to a WordPress function that was removed several releases ago.

    Of course, if you want to run a 5 year old version of WordPress…..

    Just kidding, as you would have 5 years worth of security issues threatening you, including automated hacker processes well documented for anyone to try.

    tried that duplicator plugin. The clone loads awfully slow and layout is all crippled.
    And I still can’t get into clone’s admin panel. Now, it redirects me to home page.

    Sorry to hear. It worked perfectly for me the couple of times I’ve tried it so far.
