I really like Duplicator plugin. I have cloned my site and have it running locally on my machine using Instant WordPress.
What I would like to do is update posts, add content, and generally tweak my site offline on my local machine using instant wordpress.
Whilst I am tweaking, I will leave the existing version of the site up on the web so there is no downtime.
I would even like to add all my posts going forward via instant wordpress, I like how I can play with it and not affect the online site.
However, I dont want to use Duplicator plugin everytime I want to push the local site onto the web again, as its quite complex and involves messing with the database structure - im afraid I will break it.
So I was wondering if this would work:
1) When I want to pull files from my online site.
FTP into online site, copy all wordpress files, and paste into wordpress folder in Instant WordPress
2) When I want to push local site to web
Copy all Instant WordPress Files from Instant WordPress directory, and paste into corresponding FTP directory.
Would this work? Would save a lot of effort than running Duplicator plugin every time
