use DesktopServer and I really like it for developing my WP sites locally before uploading them to my live host.
The only thing I am struggling with at the moment is taking a copy of the live site to do further development on it. I am trying to find the most convenient way of backing up my live site and database content for importing into DesktopServer to create my .dev site.
The backup solutions I use are UpdraftPlus and for multi site stuff the Cloner and Snapshot from WPMU DEV.
None of them seem to create the simple .zip file I need of my live site so I can just import it into DesktopServer to create the .dev site.
Is anyone using something to do this? Please feel free to share your tips and experiences :slight_smile:
