Exact replica of one subsite onto another subsite on the same multi-site network

Hi folks,

***I have actually enable WPMUDEV dashboard for you as well on http://bit.ly/1AvGwSF

The #1 site: Ok, the primary site is currently (subsite):

The #2 site: The other fresh install of WP (a second subsite) is:

What is a step by step and rock solid reliable method to make a exact copy of the #1 subsite to the #2 subsite?

I want to avoid in database issues and need to move everything (i.e. ALL stuff . . . content, images, structure, etc). I need to make a exact replication.

Please let me know.

    Hello Greg,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    In order to make an "exact replica" of a sub-site of your MultiSite setup you may want to use our "Cloner" plugin. Take a look here please:


    After it is installed, please:

    - go to "Network Admin -> Settings -> Cloner"
    - setup initial (default) configuration: select content that you want to be copied
    - go to "Network Admin -> Sites -> All sites" page
    - click on "Clone" link under the page you'd like to replicate
    - select whether you'd like to create a new sub-site or replace existing one (this would wipe existing content for that page)
    - select whether you'd like to clone title of the sub-site, keep the title of the destination site (in case of replacing existing one) or set new one
    - decide whether new site should be visible for search engines
    - click on "Clone Site" button and wait a bit

    Once the process is complete, either a new sub-site will be created or selected sub-site will be replaced with a replica of a source sub-site.

    I hope that helps!

    Best regards,
