Duplicator enables you to:

  • Move, migrate or clone a WordPress site between domains or hosts with zero downtime
  • Pull down a live site to localhost for development
  • Transfer a WordPress site from one host to another
  • Manually backup a WordPress site or parts of a site
  • Duplicate a live site to a staging area or vice versa
  • Bundle up an entire WordPress site for easy reuse or distribution
  • Perform a full WordPress migration without struggling with messy import/export sql scripts

Migrate WordPress and Run WordPress Backups

Duplicator creates a package that bundles all the site’s plugins, themes, content, database and WordPress files into a simple zip file called a package. This package can then be used to easily migrate a WordPress site to any location you wish. Move on the same server, across servers and pretty much any location a WordPress site can be hosted. WordPress is not required for installation since the package contains all site files.

Improve Your Workflow with Pre-Bundled Sites

Duplicator lets you make your own preconfigured sites to eliminate rework. Instead of manually configuring your favorite theme, set of plugins or content over and over, now just configure a single site and bundle it up into a Duplicator package. Once you have the bundled site, you can migrate the WordPress site over and over to different locations to instantly create many preconfigured sites!

    I must say I was stoned by the simplicity and efficiness of this plugin we will certainly reused it. Thank you!

    Doesn’t work if you are running multiple sites on a single database

    Sadly the package wants to clear the target database completely. This is fine when the wordpress site being migrated is the only site on the database but obviously is not acceptable when the database is serving multiple wordpress sites. My website hosting service charges for each database so it makes sense to run multiple sites off a single database. To its credit, the manual part of the package did migrate all the non-database components successfully and all I had to do was an export/import of the data tables using phpmyadmin which was available on both the source and target sites.

    Essential Plugin, Great Support even for Free

    I've been using Duplicator for years, on every kind of host, and for sites large and small. Most of the time, especially for smaller sites, everything will go without a hitch, but users should be aware that issues may arise roughly in proportion with the size and complexity of a given site, and all the more if whatever hosts or hosting plans are inappropriately configured or under-powered. Snap Creek has attempted to anticipate these issues in their extensive, context-linked documentation, but I'd still say that you don't want to leave your transfer of a site to the last minute on a deadline: There's not "always" something - but there often is. (Incidentally, two-part install solves many issues with sites too big for cheap hosting to handle.) For example, even after losing count long ago of how many sites I've used Duplicator on, I just in the last couple of days I encountered a brand new issue that turned out to have originated in an FTP bug - nothing to do with Duplicator itself. Even though I was not on a premium plan, tech support quickly and efficiently got to the bottom of the issue, and we were able to solve it. So, in short, it's an essential, well-supported tool for handling a common and sometimes complex task.
