Clone/Duplicate WordPress Install

, ,

I’ve written about cloning/duplicating/migrating a WordPress instance before (Importing from another WordPress site and I wrote a set of instructions for migrating sites that I can’t seem to find now). It’s always been a bit more of a pain than I’ve liked. And one reason I don’t always run dev versions of our WordPress sites (the other being I rarely mess things up even on my own personal blog).

I’ve read about a plugin that is supposed to make this easier. (And keep me from editing SQL dumps, though I suppose the import/export in WordPress 3.x might have obviated that need.) Unfortunately I can’t vouch for it (yet).
