Most reliable tool to migrate wordpress
By , for WP 3.7.1

Everything else is just 2nd choice. That is the best and easiest tool I have found so far.

One of the best plugins

If there would be a list with the most useful WordPress plugins, this would be in the TOP 10. Congrats and thanks!

A simplistic brute force approach to backups & cloning. Love it!
By , for WP 3.7.1

Excellent plugin. Gotta love the "brute-force-backup-everything-on-your-server approach". Simple to use & menu driven.

It can be a bit fickle, though, and may need a little fettling on occasions - although, in my experience, it isn't down to the plugin but the hosting provider...

My only gripe was that it kept timing out on creating a package. I was ending up with a '500 internal server' error. The plugin does offer up some good advice on how to try and tackle it, though, with FAQs on common problems.

If you're getting a timeout issue then I'd suggest setting up as many directory filters as you can (think: Cache directories, ManageWP directory, any development directories you don't need, etc. Filter 'em all) and then add:

<IfModule mod_php5.c>
php_value max_execution_time 259200
</IfModule>

into .htaccess to increase the PHP execution timeout. Doing this resolved my timeout issues immediately.

The max_execution_time may not work on all hosts - so I've been told.

Other than that, for me, it's a brilliant plugin and has saved me so much time.

Very easy, very efficient

Duplicator is awesome

Best tool for backing up and restoring website. Together with Instant WordPress, it allow me to develop websites offsite and then move them easily to hosts and back.

It just works

Should be part of wordpress
By , for WP 3.6.1

Installed on more then 30 wordpress websites that I manage; this plugin should be part of the wordpress core components. It saved me tons of time and drove away a couple of nightmares.
