Fantastic Plugin!
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin is excellent. I use it to backup my wordpress installs, also I have used it to move wordpress to different servers on multiple occasions. The only time I have had difficulty is with sites that are hundreds of MB in size, in that case you can simply exclude the media folder to reduce the size.

One problem, I have had on a couple of occasions is the domain name not being updated to the new domain correctly, I'm not sure why as it usually does work.

Keep up the good work, this plugin is much appreciated and has saved me a lot of time trying to manually move WP.

cheers

My choice for migrating sites
By , for WP 4.0

This is my choice for migrating sites from local or online test servers to their final destinations. While there are many plugins for backup, few of them offer such an easy restore procedure as this one.

Issues that I encounter are usually caused by some of my clients' servers, with low memory and issues with large file transfers. However, the plugin gives the option to only export the database, which I've found to be the answer in most cases, and then all I have to do is copy the wp-content through ftp.

Very rarely has the plugin itself given me any headaches.

After cloning some posts missing
By , for WP 4.0

Hi,

I have my wp sites all on the same server.

When I clone from the source wp installation to a freshly installed 4.0 wp destination installation it works almost perfectly.

In settings > general on the destination site, I had to change
Site title and tagline.

However,

When I clone from the source WP 4.0 installation to an existing installed 4.0 wp destination installation, the last 3 posts are missing, 2 pages are missing.

If anyone could assist as to why these are missing, I would be truly thankful.

Regards
S

I don't usually write testimonials but for this one I had to. Amazingly wonderful could not believe how quickly the restoration happened without doing any changes to anything. God Bless You!!!
