    Hey Guys,

    Im looking to speed up my website creation time. Im finding it to be a pain in the ass to install wordpress and reconfigure the look of everything each time for a new domain.

    Can I set up an install and configure it once with my adsense code, positioning ect... Then export that somehow, import it to a new domain?

    Im trying to put a site online per week but this is eating up a few hours each time I create a new domain.

    I would like to just be able to set up a domain, import the site and have it be ready for posting. Of course I will have to change the site name, meta description and stuff and maybe add a new logo.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated, even a solution outside of wordpress.

    Cheers,
    Corey

    Well, You can Make Use of the Wordpress MU Feature!

    Create sites With same Look and Feel using Wordpress MU and then Move it to the New domain's Root! Also You would need a One line Phpmyadmin edit!

    Simply Move using FTP will Not Work Since Wordpress stores URL in the Database!

    Use backupbuddy. Setup a full, but empty site, configure your plugins etc, and make a backup. Then later you can just make a db, upload the backup and the importer, and you have a clean clone.

    Well, That makes a Point!

    But, backup of the DB doesnt contain the Wordpress URL and Site Home URL which Is configured from the Admin panel?

    I wonder that would conflict! Rest is Fine as it is!

    the importer file of the plugin takes care of everything. After import you only need to modify a few stuff in wp.

    there is a clone plugin available. search it thru admin->plugins->add new = think name is wpclone. havent used it but it claims to do what you want.

    Well, So You meant To USe Backupbuddy? Well, I thought you were insisting him to use Backups , like i Read it 'Use Back Up Man ' .


    Well, If that works as you said, The OP has got a solution!

    wp db backup plugin. get the sql - gl0bal search and replace with notepad all reference to the previous website url. Overwrite a fresh new wordpress installed database with the one you got(import database at phpmyadmin)

    Get a backup of wp-content of previous website. overwrite new fresh install wp- content folder.

    Done.


    I do this all the time with a "pre configured" model of minisite, then just add the keywords and content. easy.

    Make a clean setup.

    download the files with ftp and upload again.

    then just download the database in myphpadmin wit correct settings

    google, "backup wordpress phpmyadmin"

    upload to new database. edit the "site" and "blog" fields in wp_option table with new domain name.

    and edit wp-config.php with the correct login pass and db name.

    don't forget .htacces file.

    chmod 777 : uploads folder and .htacces file.

    and re save permalinks.

    chmod 755 .htacces file.

    Takes me less then 5 minutes.

    Ok well its true, he has to understand how to do install/backup/transfer wp sites, databases... but its basic.
    You have to know what are you doing with the plugins as well, if there is an error because of a permission etc, need to know how to solve them.

    Seems nowaday people just what to do things but have no clue of how they go about it. Read up and understand the limitations. Good luck.
