Easy to use and it works!
By , for WP 4.4

Not like other similar plugins that ask a lot of question. This one is very simple to use. It still has an "Advanced Settings" option if you want to manually configure the settings.

And the great is: IT WORKS! I used Duplicator plugin(by LifeInTheGrid), but don't know why now it won't work anymore. So have to find the alternative. Glad I found this.

Thank you.

A great program... easy to restore from back up or clone to another server. Thankful it is being updated to current WP versions!

Worked great

When I attempted to upgrade WP on my live site, it turned white and I could not login, even from the hosting account. Luckily I have a recent test site. I loaded WP Clone on the test site and made a backup. Then deleted the prod site, and did a new install. Installed WP Clone and entered the URL for the backup. I was surprised how quick it worked. Important, when I tried to go into Settings it redirected to the test site. So I had to edit wp-config.php to hard code in url for both WP_HOME and WP_SITEURL. Now it works great.

WP Clone works like a charm!

After having significant hassles with manual migration and then with Duplicator and some other self-proclaimed silver bullet software I found WP Clone. WP Clone did exactly what you would guess it does: It clones your site from one location to another. It's easy to install, easy to use and does the job!
Great stuff!

Works Great A++

I have found WP Clone is the quickest and easiest way to take a dev site live, duplicate a site, or simply create a backup. The only time I have had it fail is when trying to use it on a clients site where they are hosted on one of the lower end web hosting company's. It seems to fail b/c some hosts put a limit on the transfer time and bandwidth. If this happens just clone the database and then manually ftp the files and it works fine.

Yes, there are some issues from time to time (especially with Godaddy which I am sure has more to do with Godaddy's horrible hosting than with WP Clone), but all in all, I am relying heavily on WP Clone and use it on a regular basis with every website I develop.

I am happy to hear that the developers are working to improve it, but it is the best backup plugin I have found to date.

Thanks WP Clone!

Very good!
