I need to copy (not move) a WP website to a new location. I have found some instructions on http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress, but I was wondering if there is no easier (automated) way to do it. For example an import-export plugin?
Hello, here is a faster and easier way to backup and restore your entire wordpress web site: simply install this plugin and follow the instructions here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/backupwordpress/faq/
I tried it and it worked fine.
@Alan I used your method and it seems to have worked.
@muotechguy I am interested in using the structure as a template
WordPress comes with a built in import/export feature from the tools menu.
However, I strongly advise against copying (not moving). Google will be able to easily identify copied content and will derank the site. Can I ask WHY you want to copy it instead of moving? I can't think of any situation in which that would apply.
use SurfOffline -but it will download the entire site-
or use a backup software from the backend
or backup(export) ur MySQL tables and reimport it to the 'new' site
Have you looked at this?
