Backup & Restore WordPress Websites with Backup Creator: Tutorial Video
Here’s how to backup and then either copy, move, migrate, clone, or restore your WP sites:
Backup the site using the Backup Creator Plugin (get your copy from the member’s area, right click and download to your desktop)
2. Install the Backup Creator plugin on your existing WordPress site (login to the wp-admin, go to Plugins, Add New, Upload, browse for the plugin on your hard drive, then Upload)
Activate the plugin once it’s uploaded, and click Backup Now.
Save a copy of the backup to your desktop, and click the button to “Send to Cloud” if you want an offsite backup.
Install a new WordPress site. In this video, we go to example.com/cpanel, QuickInstall, then clicked Install WordPress to create the new (blank and empty) WordPress site.
Install the Backup Creator plugin on the new site where you will be restoring. Plugins, Add New, Upload Plugin, then browse to that Backup Creator file again.
This time, choose Restore option. You can restore from your desktop, from the cloud, or in this video, I right clicked the backup file on the “source” site, chose Copy Link Address, and pasted that into the destination site to quickly copy it from one website to another.
