    Its a different site bro. I just want the customization to be same. Not the website name and other details.

    Yes! You can use Backup Buddy for that...Backup your site, and restore it on a new domain/host/server...

    I know there's a free plugin that does the same as backup buddy does, i just forgot the name of that wordpress plugin

    Here's an excerpt from Backup Buddy Site;

    Did you mean just the theme itself? Then you probably can just use FTP and download the customized theme, then upload it to the new domain/site.

    Edit: But I gather that would only work if you customized the theme files itself. Now if you meant that the theme itself has its settings and you want that copied over, you'll have to backup your database (with the active theme) and restore the new site from that. I'm not sure if there's any easier way than the ones already suggested above.

    I did that, it imported all the db , post , pages etc. I only want to export the theme settings because I have made a lot of customization on the theme and I want the new customized theme as it is.
