Worked well for me
By ,

Just mirgated my first site and all went well.. 136mb zip file created very quickly and restored quickly. Few blank screen when finished each process which is a little worrying but worked well. Many thanks

Disappointment on restore
By , for WP 4.1

For its claims of being platform independent, this is a flop. Couldn't use other plugins because of PHP limitations on source host, so went here. Very prompt in creating ZIP file.
Install WP on new host, install plugin, reference given source URL, and message shows up:

The plugin encountered an error while extracting the zip file using WP's zip file extractor,the following error message was returned:
Error Message : Incompatible Archive.

So, gone nowhere... fast, mind you, but nowhere nonetheless. Grr!

Have not had any trouble yet, thankfully. Successfully moved more than 10 site already :D

/*April 2015 Update */

Problems did pop up, but after reading what the Author had to say, I thank them for letting us know beforehand (:
So my stars still remain at 5, as I still find it to be a great product (:

Hopefully it's fixed soon

Advice for users
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin works great for me, but pay atention:
- If you have the "Rename wp-login" plugin instaled, you must deativate it before making a backup.
Otherwise you cant't restore your backup.
Also very important: After a backup copy your file zip to a secure place and then delete immediatly your backup file in the host.
If someone gets that file, it is very easy discover all passwords and usernames of your site.

Huge timesaver
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin is a huge timesaver for a site migration because of the direct http connection -- as far as I can tell, other similar sites assume that the user will download the clone file via FTP from one site and then upload it to another. Not my cup of tea.

However, I am giving this 4 stars rather than 5 because of poor documentation and a number of glitches that can cause problems along the way - and which can take some technical sophistication to address. (I've figured everything out.)
