How to Clone and Deploy a WordPress Website
ManageWP gives you the tools you need to quickly and easily clone a WordPress site for rapid deployment elsewhere. You could move your WordPress website to a new domain, new host, new server – all with a single tool that does the job for you in a couple of minutes.
Years of experience and thousands of successful site copies have made the ManageWP clone tool the most robust one on the market. It will handle huge databases, different environments, replacing URLs in serialized data after cloning – basically anything you can think of. And if there is any problem there is always our fantastic customer support.
Here’s an example use case: You have a specific way that you set up your WordPress websites, a group of plugins that you always install, a specific permalink setup and a bunch of customizations that you do manually each time. With the ManageWP clone tool, you can create a template website that you can rapidly deploy each time you install WordPress to a new site. This means that it will take you only a few minutes to carry out a task that previously took you hours.
You could also use the clone tool to deploy a client’s website from a test server to their server, or to migrate your site to a new server or domain. You can clone to a new site, or overwrite an existing one.
The ManageWP clone tool streamlines your workflow and deployment process, letting you spend less time on repetitive tasks and more time making a beautiful, powerful WordPress website.

Even though our Clone/Migration Wizard is a fantastic tool, there is one thing that you should always bear in mind when you are using it:
Please make sure that you’re not using the same database for the source and destination sites! Also, please bear in mind that cloning from / to a multisite installation is not supported!
