Does not work
By , for WP 4.1.1

I tried it three times and all I got was a white screen that said:

405 Not Allowed
nginx/1.6.3

Could not find any help on their website.

do not install this plugin, it broke my site
By , for WP 4.0.1

I installed it and when I tried to make a backup, it just hanged. I try refreshing the page and the site was all unresponsive. Had to delete the plugin folder via FTP in order to have my site back.

I would recommend removing this plugin from the WordPress plugin list.

MarĂ­a.

Not working
By , for WP 4.1

The plugin encountered an error while downloading the zip file,the following error message was returned:
Error Message : Internal Server Error

Temporary files created in /home4/beauuak1/public_html/wp-content/wpclone-temp will be deleted.

Unreliable. Unsupported.
By , for WP 4.1

This used to be a real godsend of a plugin. Now I can't guarantee whether or not it will work, support requests go unheeded, and it's basically become an abandoned plugin. Pity.

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!

new site redirect to the old site. can not be changed
By ,

this problem is mentioned several times in the Forum, but there is no support at all. disappointed!

Untrustworthy and Unusable
By , for WP 4.0

Missing content without errors. That makes this the worst kind of problem! You could potentially pass a site to a client never knowing that text and/or images are completely missing. On top of that, the plugin creator has disappeared from the support forums for over six months.
