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
By , for WP 3.8.3

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?

I found this plugin to be INCREDIBLE !
Many thanks to the developers for their efforts :)

For anyone who has had their data deleted when using this .. or is otherwise complaining about support etc..

1. it is free
2. it is your responsibility to BACKUP files AND database before installing anything .. especially something as potentially invasive as this is.
3. it is free

I am hopeful it will continue to work for me, but I also realize the nature of compounding open source bits. Not everything is going to be compatible with everything.

Great concept. Didn't work for me.

After selecting Create Backup, my browser went into Waiting For mode for several minutes and then navigated to my blog page and returned a page not found message:

I was copying a site to a whole new domain ... this plugin made it SUPER easy. I'm so impressed. Didn't even have to FTP files or export SQL. It did it all.

Extremely easy

From local to live - exactly what I was looking for!
