Hey guys

Anyone know if or how you can copy a wordpress blog?

Im just thinking that i have several keywords in a niche that im targeting and wondered if copying one of my blogs was possible in terms of the whole lot in one go?

I know i can copy posts, pages and pics etc but i mean to save the time and hassle is it possible to just copy a complete wordpress blog into a new domain name?

Your help is appreciated

Thanks

    The BackupBuddy plugin will do that for you - it has a specific process for migrating an entire WordPress site.

    Cheers,

    I use wp twin to clone and backup wp sites and it works fine for me and is dead easy to use. You can find out more at wptwin.net/ (this is not an affiliate link )

      The most dependable way to COMPLETELY clone a site is to...

      *download all the WP files from the server via FTP
      *setup your new domain in your hosting acct and create a new Mysql database
      *go to the database for the site you are cloning and export all the tables
      *go to your new DB and import then edit the "Options" table in your new DB in line 2 and somewhere around line 39 to change the old url to the new url for the site.
      *go back to the WP files you downloaded and change the WP-config.php file to reflect the new DB name, user, and password
      *upload all the WP files to the new domain root directory

      Now you should be able to login to the admin panel using the same user/pass as before.

      Make sure you disable the old site or change the content so you don't have duplicate sites.

      I do this for clients all the time and it is the safest, most dependable method, plus you now have a complete backup of your site on your computer should anything bad happen in the future.

    +1 for BackupBuddy. I use it all the time and great for regular backups to store as well.
