    Hello,

    i need a cloner to move wordpress installs to other domains.

    Could you please recommend me a program?

    The problem is that using a mass installer like wpm*nagerdx i cannot install on some of my other hosts (due to being unable to connect to Cpanel remotely)...so i install WP blogs on one server....but now i need to move the install to the other one.

    Thanks!

    So if you need to move them, that just use a FTP program.

    What you can do is use the mass installer on the server it works on. make sure this in your mass installer config file you dont use local host for the DB, use the IP. This way when you transfer the files, you dont need to mess about with moving DB's as it will continue to connect to your original DB.

    However you may have a challenge with URL's, as WP stores URL settings. SO you will have to manually change them for each one. Unless you point the domain you want to use to the user you are going to use to mass install, then once done point the domain to the new server.

    Alternativley if you look at something like Blog Matrix Pro, then you dont need to connect to CPanel.

    Hope this helps.

    hello,

    i found out its pretty easy to migrate.

    Just use cpanel and install a fresh WP...and then FTP the wp-content folder of the old one over. That's it. Easy as pie.

    Will check that blog matrix pro program, thanks!

    If you want to install the same wordpress with the same database over and over again on the same hosting account just download with ftp the files and upload it to the new folder, edit the wp-config.php with the new database and then go to phpmyadmin, go to the main wordpress database , go to operations and copy the database to your second database . This way you can multiply it verry easy .
