Move WordPress site to other hosting using Plugin.
I too myself wondered how to do this,and after searching on Google for few days i came across two plugins for your WordPress blog which automate the whole process of cloning of your website and pack the backup in an easily downloadable
archive and a php restore script,these both files can be easily uploaded to your new hosting together in a folder and run the script.
so,the plugins are :-
1. X-Cloner :- This Plugin has a Feature where you can generate the tar backup using a click and pack in all your database and files into it easily,this also gives a restore script to restore the entire site on another hosting, this is easy,just put the tar archive and x-cloner.php in the same folder and run the script,rest of the backup process is automatic,this Plugin can also restore the plugin via ftp transfer,but i don’t know if it works or not,because it didn’t work for me,and also one warning,it generates a pretty big backup archive compared to other backup plugins.
So,the best Plugin for Moving and Restoring your WordPress website in a hassle free way would be Duplicator,if you are not looking at saving your bandwidth.
