Thanks to WP Clone, moving a website is a breeze.
Most of the time it works automatically: perfect, everything is moved within 10 minutes with only few clicks.
But even if there's server issues, it allows you to move you FTP files (wp-content) as it is, and just by moving the database, does all the work for you.
Perfect for WordPress DIVI users as well: it moves all the content seamlessly!
Thumbs up!

Incomplete posts and pages
By , for WP 4.2.2

I wrote on their forum to point out that using their latest release on a freshly update WordPress, I ended up with incomplete post and page content, just a few lines at the beginning of each and no more. Thankfully I was cloning, not backing up and restoring, otherwise I would have lost most of my content, so beware before relying on this plugin for backup!
I waited a week for a reply from developers but nothing yet, so it has to be a 1 star I'm afraid...

Just not working

It will not backup my site. When it does finish then the file is empty!! So I cant restore it from my other website. Dammit!

Restore not working
By , for WP 4.2.2

On restore by url option, we get a message Internal Server Error, and the best part is there is no solution for that, uninstalling the plugin

It just works!

After years of manually moving or backing up websites I tried something new. WP Clone just worked. No hassles, no worry, no stress - just a exact site copy!

Excellent Plugin

I have spent the best part of 8 hours trying to copy a WordPress website onto a new server with a new host. I searched online and read support forums, WordPress Codex, support threads etc etc, and tried several ways using ftp, and web based file managers. Each time I kept getting an error message relating to the database connection. I uploaded the backup copy of my database and tried changing table prefix's, changing the wp-config.php file etc but nothing worked. Finally I found a thread that mentioned this plugin so I thought I would give it a try. To my amazement it was all done in less than 5 minutes. I could've saved hours if I had known about this plugin first, but I am so thankful I eventually found it. Hats off to the plugin author/developer, this was exactly what I needed. I now have the exact same website running live on 2 different url's on 2 different hosting accounts. This was a test because my current hosting plan is about to end and I'm getting a new deal with a new company, but when I do I now know I simply have to install WordPress, and then install the WP CLONE plugin and I will be up and running again in no time.

Wouldn't use anything else!

This plugin has made my online marketing a breeze! I can clone a beautiful custom site and re-create it, change the content& colors and sell it to a new client. Saves me 20 hours to construct a custom site :) Love this plugin!

WP Clone Excellent and Wow

It worked like charm for me!

I had to move a client's wordpress website from one server (subdomain) to another and it really saved my day.

Thank you very much, folks.

I would like to donate, where can I do that?
