Beware Plugin EzWPCloner Plugin

39 replies
I just purchased another plugin (EzWPCloner Plugin). Uploaded it to server, activated it then ran the plugin and got multiple errors on what was supposed to be a 5 step simple operation. I submitted 2 support tickets with no response.

My advice is to stay away...

    I'd be cautious of wordpress cloners that are PLUGINS. To do a proper clone, you need to do it externally of wordpress for safety and for best results.

      Hi Jason

      Yeah we have just done this exact same thing and it worked perfectly on each instance of the cloning.

      Takes a little bit more effort but kills off the headaches.

      Regards

    Well after 5 days, I finally received an email but a day later, still no results. They must have been slammed with problems. This was too good to be true. I know already what some of you are saying...

    thanks for this caution, it happens that I have in mind to purchase one. Thank you very much as I read this bad reviews.

    If you are looking for a decent workpress backup option, then get teh one from plug in buddy. There is a reason it costs slightly more - it is just plain better than all the others I have tried

    Another vote for WPTwin. Has been working flawlessly on all the blogs I've tried so far...

    I did not use wp twin personally but a friend of my mine is using it and is very happy with it.

      It's now been almost 2 weeks and no reply from their support as well as no refund. What a loser this guy is. I would highly recommend everyone remove him the next time you get an email from him. For $27 it's almost silly but some people think they are so popular they can handle the heat. Wait until the articles about this start circulating the article directories this week.

      Thanks for the heads up on WP Twin.

        I bought the ezWPCloner upon recommendation of someone (who turned out to be a reseller) and got an error message after I activated it. That someone said WPTwin was a nightmare to work with and she suggested ezWPCloner.

        I think I've been somewhat mislead?

        I should have searched in this forum before buying, but I trusted that person who sold it to me.

        So WPTwin isn't that bad after all??

        UPDATE
        Upon further enquiries, I've been told WPTwin has spyware on it. And that the ezWPCloner is now in the final stages of being fixed. What a turnaround!!

          Wptwin has no spyware. Don't believe everything you hear.

          There was a cracked version of wptwin going around on the blackhat forums that did indeed have spyware... but that's what happens when you try to "steal" wptwin as opposed to getting it LEGALLY.

          In 95% of cases Wp Twin works perfectly and takes about 2 minutes of your time the first time you created a clone. After that, usually quicker. In about 5% of instances there are a few issues (because some hosting providers simply have jacked up hosting solutions... or the plugins someone is using create way too much database information)... but we have 3 people on support so we work with you.

          To give you an idea of how good wp twin is, let me just share with you these stats as on 9 PM central time this morning:

          Wp Twin Units Sold: 1454
          Units Refunded: 65
          Refund Rate: 4.47%

          Show me any other software that does something similar to WP Twin that only has a refund rate of 4.47%... Which tells you two things:

          1) we do honor our refunds and it's easy to get one if you aren't satisfied
          2) there's a 95.53% chance it will work perfectly for you, or work with a little help from our support team

            SERVICE is the number 1 thing to consider when purchasing anything whether it be a car Rv or software. The total lack of communication from the WPClone and it's seller KR is simply unacceptable. Mark my words; the best thing you can do is avoid companies and resellers who provide no support.

            BTW, I wouldn't make it a practice to purchase from those who are not a part of this forum. You'll notice they care so little they have provided NO FEEDBACK at all.

            Follow the reviews and recommendations on the WF and you'll probably avoid headaches in the future. This is my 11th year on the internet and I have requested 3 refunds in those 11 years. There have been products I bought and had difficulty working with them but their CS was there for me so I ate the cost.

              Absolutely. And "there were bugs" is not an excuse. Windows has bugs, but then they're a de-facto monopoly, I wouldn't use Windows if I had a real choice. If we didn't care about bugs, we'd be selling a whole lot of stuff..

              There are so many things we can think of selling.. so many things could be automated if only we found a way to fix the bugs. In a way the software industry is strange, if people sold new cars with airconditioners that didn't work until they were fixed, or garbage disposals that threw all your garbage in the air until it was fixed (oops)

              This practice of selling unfinished, buggy, broken software, and then issuing "updates" (actually "fixes") it after someone's paid for it really has to stop.

                Your very mistaken...You cannot plan for the unseen. Our first version worked
                out very good, EXCELLENT on blogs...with you own hosting. That was the problem.
                We tried and tested it on our servers, and they worked perfectly. But we started to
                get a few complaints (personal eMails) and then we discovered that hosting places
                like Yahoo and such, the sofware was not compatible at all.

                So we updated...and updated again.

                We cannot possibly know ALL facets of every software application. The Warrior Forum itself have had bugs, but untill they were brought to their attention, they were virtually unknown to the moderators and creators.

                It was not like we threw together "unfinished, buggy, broken software..." Our prouct worked in our eyes and we knew nothing of the sort of the issues that would become clear in the following weeks after first launch.

                When you sit down to start a new project, be it a software application or minature doll house for your daughter, you can bet that even though you have it planned out, and put together...there will be issues. You cannot possibly think of every scenario that could be an issue. It's impossible.

                I believe that we made an excellent product, that stands alone in this market.

                Thanks for replying to thread though...I'm excited now for people to start making POSITIVE comments on our product in this thread.

                  Um.. you didn't have a beta program? and so your first customers paid to beta test it?

                  Yea, that's been said a long time. It seems to be an industry standard in the software industry to make your customers pay to be beta testers.

                  I just had a plumber fix a leak under the sink. It stopped dripping from the moment the tap was turned on, and weeks later, it is still not dripping. He didn't say "the pipe works in my eyes and I knew nothing of the sort of the issues that would become clear in the following weeks after I first installed your new sink trap."

                  It's funny how only people who write software think there should be issues a week after something is installed.

                  Anyway I'm not having a go at you or anyone, I'm just wondering how weird the software industry is, that everyone expects to pay to beta test someone else's software.

                  It's just odd, like selling a TV that catches fire every once in a while if you press the wrong button on the remote, and then saying "oops, we didn't know that, we'll send you a fix, but you have to install it yourself."

                  Joel Spolsky has an interesting take on that at Hard-assed Bug Fixin' - Joel on Software

                  The dirty secret of the software industry :

                  Fixing bugs is only important when the value of having the bug fixed exceeds the cost of the fixing it.
                  So yea, it doesn't make "economic sense" to fix all the bugs.

                  Well, I've got a different idea, what if customers were really treated well? what if, after you were paid, you installed it, made sure it worked, showed it to your customer, made sure he was happy with it, and then (and only then) left him to his own? it can't be that difficult, after all, plumbers and electricians have been doing that for decades.

                    I AM a Warrior Member. So your saying that I should be in all places at all times? We DID know there were problems right away after releasing. We received eMails on it and went to work fixing the problem right away.

                    We did have a beta...tested and true. Everyone we deal with has dedicated servers that this software worked with just fine. We did not forsee that it would not be compatible with the few servers used by Yahoo and such. It would seem to me that your just out to bash, and not see the other side of the story. Maybe spend a little less time bashing a more time actually working with those around you then you might be able to help those that need help instead of hinder them.

                    Again...we did beta test. And ask anyone here in the Warroir Forum, or anywhere else, even after beta testing, there are still issues unforseen, or things that can be improved apon. And again, your bashing instead of helping everyone involved.

                    What is funny is you just put your foot in your mouth. What about the company who first issues the sink? Or the people that originally installed it. This is not a very good example for your argument. If it was there never would have been a leak, because those who created the sink as well as those who would of installed it would haVe "forseen" all problems ever to exist with the life of that sink and prepared against that....so that there was never a leaky sink.

                    Who is it that thinks that? We do not go into a project with that in mind EVER. Of all the software applications that we have developed, or resold, one has issues and all of a sudden "watch out...everything this guy, or these guys put out is trash" is basically what I'm hearing. And you jumped on board with critical critisim instead of actually helping out your neighbor and seeing if there was some way to help. You seem to know a lot about 'the industry' so instead of bashing those trying to make their mark, why don't you see if you can reach out and offer some assistance. Would you just pass someone on the road fixing a flat tire in the rain just because they originally did not see that the tire they were using was not prepared for all roads? Or would you do like your doing and pass them by while speeding up and hitting the puddle of water behind them, furthering their dilemma.

                    If it were possible to show up to every house and install, I would. Thats not how software works and you know it. We are not creating fires. But now thanks to you we are having to try and put one out. Thanks.

                    You know that is impossible, unless the customer wants to pay for the plane ticket, and there were more time in a day. I would love to see the people that are bashing do this. Especially you CrishD. Spend more time helping out and less time focusing on the problem and man, things might be a little different in the future for all of us.

                      I wish I had seen this thread earlier. I bought ezwpcloner and kept getting errors while using it. I wrote Ken and get a quick reply with a fix suggestion. That didn't work so I wrote again. He replied asking for my cpanel info so "Oliver" could check it and let me know what the problem was.

                      That was on the 4th....5 days later I've still heard nothing and had no response to my follow up emails

                Hi CrhisD

                We created some software and built all of the aditional features and improvements based on customer feedback and requests.

                BTW - none of the updates were bug related and we improved our product to the tune of 29 new features over 11 months.

                The updates aren't always an "excuse" sometimes they are just plain old "Good Customer Service".

                Regards

                I just had to respond to this, not to rip you Chris,
                but to give others a clue to what building software
                entails.

                I started programming in 1975, I actually worked with 1's and 0's.
                You have no idea what a nightmare it is to have just one of those
                turned off when it should have been on.

                Today it's a lot easier, but no pick nick. I do not program any more
                I have hired a few programmers for projects.

                The problem is that you can not foresee every issue that will
                come up when using software. There are many things that
                just don't work well together. You can test and test and for those of
                you that don't know there is software that tests software. But
                you still don't find all of the problems until you get it into the hands
                of the users.

                I feel the best way to release a new software product is
                to set the customers expectation right up front.

                Let them know this is a new release, let them know they may
                have problems, but your support is going to be there and for their
                trouble they are getting a very reduced first release price.

                Just my 2 cents.

                  Yes I agree.

                  We beta tested Wp Twin for two months at least with several groups of testers... starting at version 0.1 - the version we released to the public was, I believe, version 1.6 - so it had been through 16 updates before it even launched.

                  The trick is that it could work perfectly you for and the 15 other people who initially tested it, but you might run into something unexpected on the 16th person.

                  Since we launched, it has ran smoothly for 95% of people, but there is that small 5% group who based on either plugin settings in wordpress, their server or something very odd and unique, there is a bit of trouble. We then work with support to help that unique instance, and if it makes sense, we also update the script to fix that problem so it never happens in the future... (sometimes this is not possible because the problem is so unique).

                  With that said though - most developers these days don't go through 16 updates in beta before they launch it live. They simply don't want to wait two months. There is no excuse for rushing something to the market with KNOWN problems.

                  I'm currently 4 months into a membership plugin we're developing because we've went through about 25 updates. Most developers don't have that patience. That's why software is not an easy game to play in.

                    Jason,

                    I was on a webinar with an internet marketing coach and she advised that :-

                    "I bought the WP Twin. I absolutely hate it. It says it will do it in less than 20 seconds. It is a lie. You have to work on the back of both sites.. you have to
                    back up SQL databases... it is a very difficult cloner."

                    However, I was on the webinar with you last October and didn't get that impression.

                    Any comments?

                    I am interested in purchasing WP Twin for use primarily to back up my sites to S3.

                    Thanks

                      Jason's WP Twin plugin is the best cloning plugin and backup solution I've used.

                      I was skeptical, because my main blog has been around since 2007 and has 300+ posts and 16,685 approved comments (just checked in my WP Dashboard). I though it would take forever...and it does with other forms of backup.

                      WP Twin worked perfectly, without a hitch. I've been burned by buggy software in the past...but Jason has earned my trust with how well his plugin works.

                      Note: I also have 25+ Wordpress Satellite blogs spread over 4 different hosting platforms. WP Twin worked flawlessly on all of them.

                      Max,

                      Wp Twin works flawlessly 95% of the time (as stated in the previous post I showed with statistic...).

                      For example, with hostgator I have NEVER ran into any problems, and can clone any site in less than 32 seconds of "active" time. (you wait for it to upload the clone to your new blog... but that takes none of your personal time.)

                      You do not back up any SQL databases. You upload a script - go to the URL you uploaded it to... click clone... then download the clone it auto-generates.

                      Then install wordpress in the desired location you want to "deploy" your clone. Upload one more script and the clone file you downloaded. Then go to that script URL location and hit "deploy" clone.

                      I seriously don't know an easier way to do it than that?

                      Does it back up SQL databases? You bet. But you do none of that manually. You upload a total of three files and click "clone" and "deploy" and that's it.

                      Now there are times when the script doesn't work perfectly (any software you know that works perfectly for everyone every time?). That's usually because it's a server issue. Some of these weird un-user friendly servers don't play well with WP Twin. But most do.

                      In almost all cases though our support team can help you out and get it working with a solution that you can then just use for any additional clones.

                      The only other time WP Twin seems to have a problem is with certain wordpress plugins that store gobs of info in your database. These plugins are rare and are often made by third parties who are not very good at creating wordpress plugins.

                      This problem does not happen very often but in the rare instance it does - again our support team can hep you with it.

                      Also, there is a warrior here on the WSO forum who sells a script for $17 that does auto backups of WP Twin for you directly to S3 so that sounds perfect for you.

                      Bottom line - just try it out. If you don't like it, I have no problem issuing you a refund.

                      thanks!
                      Jason

            There was a cracked version of wptwin going around on the BlueFart forums that did indeed have spyware... but that's what happens when you try to "steal" wptwin as opposed to getting it LEGALLY.

            In 95% of cases Wp Twin works perfectly and takes about 2 minutes of your time the first time you created a clone. After that, usually quicker. In about 5% of instances there are a few issues (because some hosting providers simply have jacked up hosting solutions... or the plugins someone is using create way too much database information)... but we have 3 people on support so we work with you.

            To give you an idea of how good wp twin is, let me just share with you these stats as on 9 PM central time this morning:

            Wp Twin Units Sold: 1454
            Units Refunded: 65
            Refund Rate: 4.47%

            Show me any other software that does something similar to WP Twin that only has a refund rate of 4.47%... Which tells you two things:

            1) we do honor our refunds and it's easy to get one if you aren't satisfied
            2) there's a 95.53% chance it will work perfectly for you, or work with a little help from our support team
            Thanks for taking the time to clarify that, Jason.

            I stand corrected, coming from the horse's mouth.

            WPTwin is now on my shopping list.

      This is becoming more of a problem every day. Plugins are typically a fairly decent solution to a MINOR problem but some of the plugins on the market try to do too much and more often than not when that happens they simply dont deliver!

        Hi Rsberg

        Yeah they do try and do too much.

        Plus some of them don't work with what most people would consider as standard plugins as they haven't bothered testing properly before release. :confused:

        • Hey Warriors...

          My name is Matthew P. Griffin and I am one of the original releasers of the ezWordpressClone software plugins.

          A friend just messaged me this this thread.

          I don't understand....as with all software, the first version will have bugs.

          Windows Vista...support? Ha! You had to wait...but we HAVE provided
          support, and released an updated version. I'm not sure why this is the first
          I've heard of it, but believe this will not be the last you've heard from me on
          this issue. This WORKS very well...look at the video on the front sales page
          of it being done in 17 seconds: EzWPCloner Plugin

          I'm now receiving a lot of heat for selling this because of this post. And people
          are not even TRYING to use the updated version.

          And what kind of practice is it to bad mouth when you don't even know the
          people your bad mouthing. Thats a pretty bad way to do things in the Warrior
          Forum.

          I've watched Ken Reno personally use this software in MY living room to clone
          his blog in less then twenty seconds....EVERY aspect of it over to a new domain.

          I am in constant contact with Ken (when he is awake) and if there was support
          issues I'm not privy to, I do apologize, but to bad mouth the actual software
          itself is downright rude. There were bugs, they were addressed and the newest
          updated version is up and running.

          The biggest problem I see is with people reselling this software for dirt ball cheap,
          which happens, this I know, and others pirating it and it losing its internal integrity
          along the way some how, like here:

          EzWPCloner Plugin » SCRiPTMAFiA.ORG | Full Nulled Scripts

          Thats how software gets messed up and then resold or used and deprived of its
          original version and why so many people get mad at the originators of the software.

          I do understand support, and the importance of immediate responses where they
          are applicable. However I have not been informed of the support issues mentioned
          above.

          Please, please come to myself of Ken Reno with any problems you have. If by some
          chance you have tried to contact me regarding this matter and somehow slipped through
          the cracks, I can only apologize and say that I do my best. However I do not recall any
          tickets going unanswered, especially for that length of time.

          My best regards,

    Wow - just read this thread and it is a bit mind blowing.

    I'm building good quality niche blogs and I'm after a way of cloning my preferred configured plugins, a basic supplied WP theme which I will replace with something unique anyway, my legal pages etc ...

    I've looked at a few offerings to clone my blogs, just to save on time and I've kicked a few out already and ended up with WP Twin and ezWP Cloner.

    Blog Zap or Zapper was also on the cards but the owner said in the forum that it might not work with Artisteer produced themes so I've ticked that one off.

    As for WP Twin, it sounds as though it works straight out the box, as so to speak and the support is good - from what I've found, the owners seem to put across a very professional approach to their product, having a team of developers etc ... all running very well.

    As for ezWP Cloner - I'd virtually switched off to this product until Matthew P. Griffin piped up ... I've watched the video and it seems very simple and the price is amazing so I'm now even more confused again

    Will one of these do more of something than the other, is the new release of ezWP ... much better ?

    For anyone who owns both, what are your thoughts and comparisons please - I'd really love to hear which will hopefully help me make my mind up :confused:

    Oh and why is ezWP ... priced as low as $27 on some sites and $47 on others ?

    Cheers Everyone ...
