Musst pay for install
By , for WP 4.5.2

To bad !!!

First they promise that one can create a backup of a WordPress files and database, also duplicate and move an entire site from one location to another in a few steps. But wenn you want to install, you have to pay ! It's a ugly way to squeeze money out of people !!!

terrible plugin
By , for WP 4.4.2

tried this plugin couple of times..... always pops up error ......php.part could not be saved because the source file could not be read......

wasted 4 hours trying to fix it..... the developers do not give much info about it in the support section either.....

Waste of time
By , for WP 4.4.2

Poor method for determining requirements for existing and upgraded server. Poorly documented in regards to how to move to a new server. Off to find another product.

Good for small hobby sites
By , for WP 4.3.1

Probably good for small hobby sites but i doubt it would even support my site in the pro. version so uninstalled and forgotten.

Lost a full year of site updates...
By , for WP 4.3

Creating a new package zips all of the most recent files - but not necessarily the most recent database dump. Restoring from a previous backup will import a database that could be very outdated.

Not working - its not correcting the old URL's
By , for WP 4.2.2

I tried 4 times to migrate to a new clean server without luck. It gave me errors and sometimes not. Either way it did not work. When the site did transfer then when i went to newsitename.com/wp-admin - it suddently went to oldsitename.com/wp-admin !?!?! so there where too many errors with this plugin :-(

Unfortunately useless
By , for WP 4.1.1

Twice I tried using this on two sites, and twice I get errors. The 1st was Table Key Errors.

The 2nd was Serialization Errors.

To fix these errors requires me to PAY someone who knows MYSQL. I am not knowledgeable enough to fix these. The time taken to fix it, I might as well use lorem ipsum text and just produce dummy content to mimic my two sites (which is what I did for the 1st site when I encountered the Table Key Errors).

What is the point then?

This plugin is USELESS. Most likely it only works if your database is simple and with a simple structure to start with....

Didn't work
By , for WP 4.1

Kept telling me to Try Again but it still didn't work. Tried numerous settings as suggested in the Support pages but to no avail.

What's more the Filters don't seem to work. I put in the suggested file from the second stage in the Filters box and re-ran, but it kept throwing up a warning saying the file should be fitlered.

I'm not running it on a big or complex site, so good luck if you are!

If this works straight out of the box for you, then fine. If it doesn't and you don't have hours to waste trying to get it working, stick with zipping /public_html and exporting your database.

Doesn Not Work Anymore

This used to be a great plugin but now does not work. This should be removed from wordpress.org

Save you time and find a better solution.

can't duplicate my simple website
By , for WP 3.9.2

tried this one since it has very good reviews and so many downloads. But it does not work on my simple website. Mine is a website with some pictures and comments. No bid database. However, I encountered a fatal error and can't duplicate. I tried other plugin and finally All-in-One WP Migration works for me. You don't have to set up the database, username......with All-in-One WP Migration. Simplier than duplicator
