Yea WP Academy!

I was dreading what I expected to be a day-long exercise in frustration to move my site to a new domain name and host. WP Clone made it a breeze. Simple and intuitive. Just one small glitch - I could not tell that the backup was successful - ended up making four before I realized it was working just fine.

You don't have to reinstall, just click backup and then go to the other install, and hit restore from URL ( it's so awesome, you do it in 2 clicks !! )
Congrats for the FREE plugin, you guys are awesome!! keep it coming!!

Awesome Plugin

This has been the most reliable plugin I have ever used, as long as you don't change the name of the file, I have never had an issue and I have successfully moved hundreds of wordpress websites, a couple of times I had to edit the wp-config.php file, but even that was a quick fix, I have seen paid commercial back up systems fail miserably so for a donation here and there This has to be the best solution for saving time and headaches.


Easy to use and it works!

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!
