Question: When you create a Zip file of the database, does that zip file contain any special data you put there or it a 'vanilla' zip file?
I want to clone only the DB from one site to another. To test, I installed WP Clone at a small source site and at my target site, created the zipped DB, restored successfully at target site.
When I tried to create a Zip of the DB at much larger site, it ended in blank screen - assume it timed out. It did NOT create a Zip file. I have no control over timeout values on the source site but I can FTP down the entire DB and zip it on my PC, then bring it to into my target site.
Would this work?
