This is the BEST clone script have ever used. Worked just smooooooooth.

Amazingly simple, does it's job perfectly!

Use it a lot to migrate sites, 9 out of 10 times it goes well, which is a lot. You can never be sure everything works, then just fix it yourself. Works super fast! Good job developers!

WP Clone is a fantastic plugin!

I have been using WP Clone for quite some time and on quite a number of sites. Sometimes it fails on the first go (not often) and sometimes it give a false positive result but, in all cases I have been able to move my site without an issue.

One thing I would like to see (considering it can be used for backup) is to be able to schedule the backup!

Thank you!


Love this plugin
By , for WP 4.3.1

I've tried a ton of plugins to transfer sites from my server to the client's server. This one is by far the best, most complete one I've found yet. VERY easy to use!

works great, make sure your php versions on both server are the same!

This is the easiest, most hassle free plugin I've ever used. It took me less than 10 minutes to backup my live site and have it local on my computer. Most of that time was the back up loading and unloading. The actual process was just a few clicks. Now I'm theme developing with speed. Thanks !

Worked Very Well. Recommended

I wanted to create the development environment for my client on new domain. Did the job in few minutes. Great plugin. All links were also updated to new domain. Recommended.

Worked with SELinux flag change
By ,

I cloned my WP site from a Thecus n2310 (Fedora 16 on PPC) to CentOS 7 on an Asus x551m Intel N2315 netbook, using the url method, however this required use of "sudo setsebool -P httpd_unified 1" to relax CentOS 7 SEcure Linux (unify HTTPD handling of all content files - i.e. undo read only) in CentOS 7. Ref: http://www.certdepot.net/rhel7-how-to-deal-with-httpd-selinux-policy/ This policy was not the default in RHL 6. The policy can be restored by changing the 1 to 0 in the command.

Simple and works

I usually use Duplicator, but in some cases I encounter PHP timeout and other errors. If I can't fix them, I use WP Clone, as although it requires a few more steps (manual wordpress install), it doesn't need to fulfil so many requirements.

Simple and does the job even where others failed, thanks!
