I have used this plugin a lot when moving site(s) to other hosting companies or making a back up. Super easy to use. I first create a temp sup-domain on a different hosting site, add a WP installation, and this plugin. I then make a WP Clone Backup on primary site - then copy URL and then paste on other secondary WP Clone site! Wow! Done in minutes. I then repeat the process to the new hosting account. Flawless! No issues, no lost time etc.
Wow. That was easy. I struggled for days wondering how I was going to move my site to another domain name, then I finally decided to try this plugin.
site 1) Instal, activate, backup, copy link
site 2) Instal, activate, paste link, done!
Then I click "save" on my permalinks under settings and it was done! My mind is still spinning on how easy it was. I was really stressing before hand, but it was just too easy. ;-)
I hope it works for every else as much as it worked for me.
using this was supposed to be simple. while i know that nothing is simple, this is ridiculous. i have been at this for 2 hours trying to make it work with all of the work arounds listed on the web.
hell, there's not even a confirmation that it's even restoring...when you finally are able to get to this point.
say's that it will take a few minutes...hit ok...then it doesn't even give you a 1990's spinning hour glass to show you it's actually working.
how about the 500 errors....ridiculous!
how about the multiple fails....ridiculous.
why offer a plugin that requires someone to try so many work arounds????? to not have it work.
If you want to migrate your website to new server without wasting your time and Data, WP Clone by WP Academy is the best solution for you. Just try .. :D
This is the most useful plugin I have ever obtained. I can't praise it enough for its simplicity of use and its effectiveness. Absolutely wonderful so far in everything I have used it for and, frankly, I can't imagine what I would do without it now.
Hat's off to the creators - you've done a fantastic job!
I updated a site to WP 4.5 yesterday and update all of its plugin (8 total). Then I ran WP-Clone on the site and moved the site to a different URL and it all ran perfectly.
This takes migration and domain changes to a whole new level of speed.
Just incredible. worked perfectly. thank you so much. All plugins worked fine, deactivated some in advance
I tried WPTwin before I tried WPClone and though the former didn't do a great job, WP Clone did. Many thanks!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS GREAT PLUGIN!!
I tried so many different things to restore my vast website to another server and wasted many hours pulling my hair out, until rather sceptical, I tried your plugin which worked wonders in less than 5 minutes. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! (I was getting seriously worried actually!!) “Champagne !” as we would say in French and a pity I didn’t start the day with your plugin!!!
I love how effectively and consistently WP Clone works. This was my first WordPress site for a client, and I researched backup and migration plugins extensively. WP Clone stands head and shoulders above them.
In addition to flawless migrations, it also serves as the best backup tool I could find. Many backup plugins do not copy ALL files and data required for your site to be fully restored. WP Clone does.
I have done over 100 backups and restores, and never once did I have a WP Clone problem.
This plugin should be a part of every WordPress developer's toolkit.
