    I was wondering if there was a way to clone a complete website including database and such on your own server from onde domain to another (dedicated with cPanel)

    I ask this because i use BANS, SEC, trackback submitter and WP every single instalation and i get nuts of installing all these things over and over again, so i would like to know if there is a way to "clone" a complete website from domain A to Domain B and if so how that is done.

    Thanks

    Dave.

    You could export the whole mysql database and import in on the new domain. (Go into phpmyadmin, then select export database in the main window, import it on the new one and voila, should do the trick)
    Oh yeah and obv simply copy all the other files.

    Yeah that is what i figured, i hate mysql jobs because i always mess them up, i was hoping there was some kind of tool to do that, i guess not (and i have done a huge search for it)

    phpmyadmin is pretty much a tool, just go to the export option and then the import option when you're ready. You shouldnt have any problems
