Doesnt work 100% of the time (sometimes there are server issues and it times out), but when it works, it's the quickest and easiest way to duplicate a site. Has saved me countless hours!
Super plugin to migrate your website but you have to knowledge how to use this
Absolute love this plugin. Makes it's sooo easy to move a site from a development server to the live domain.
The only disadvantage is that it doesn't have an automated scheduling system for backups, so they always have to be done manually. Since we build sites for clients, and clients rarely do those things themselves, it's always dangerous that there won't be a current backup on file. Been waiting for this feature for a couple years now and still no luck, so, sadly, I might have to look into using a different plugin soon for post-production sites. :(
Other than that though this plugin is aboslutely wonderful. Been using it for over 3 years now and never struggled or had issues with it.
Thanks, thanks, thanks!! Saved a lot of time. Great job.
However, I miss support for two major plugins:
- WPML (pages/posts was empty on duplicated site. Had to deactive/uninstall WPML before duplicating site).
- WooCommerce; the custom tables that WooCommerce creates was not moved. Had to manually move theese to new site.
Excellent plugin. Ideal for backup as well as moving or copying sites.
It deserved 5 stars if it wasn't for some small problems with big files (timeouts). When this is fixed, it will be the first plugin I'll install after wordpress!
I used this plugin for moving a website from a local development host to the live site. Works great and saved me a ton of time ! I faced one issue though : I am using Cyberchimps Responsive theme and the theme specific settings (e.g. home page, custom css) were not duplicated. I had to set these up manually on the live site.
i LOVE your plugin. Right now I had to move between Windows Xamp and Oracle Virtual Machine with Lamp
One small bug that caused me some trouble.
Uploaded media files with special german characters (äöüß) are NOT copied but still refered to in the database. In my case I had to synchronize source upload folder and target afterwards with total commander. Only took some seconds to copy the missing 2000+ files. But just imagine I would have to snyc them manually.
Fix it and you will get 5 stars
Had three problems.
Internal server error:
Solved - Change directory permissions to 0x755, change file permissions to 0x644.
Safe Mode failed:
Solved - add php.ini in same directory where installer.php will run from with the following setting: safe_mode=off
Installed in wrong path:
I copied the archive and installer.php files to a new sub-directory. After running the installer and expecting the site would install in the root, it didn't. Cleaned up structure of bad install, then re-installed, ensuring/expecting to install in the root. Same prob. Deleted bad install structure and just moved the archive and installer files to the root and ran again. All went well! I would expect the installer could run from any sub-dir, and replicate the site in a directory of choice. For this reason, 4-stars.
Altogether, this is an EXCELLENT plugin!
Plugin très pratique pour cloner un site, par exemple pour y travailler en local. Plus besoin de montage compliqué, il suffit de "Duplicatorer" le site et, à l'aide de l'installeur fourni, l'installer en local sous WAMP, XAMP, ...
Tout est automatique (à part la création de la base de données) et les explications d'emploi sont claires,notamment la vidéo, même si elles n'existent qu'en anglais.
Mériterait tout de même une aide sur les erreurs ou warnings détectés lors de la phase de pré-installation.
Dans tous les cas un plugin à recommander vivement !
