About This Class

In this class, you are going to learn how to duplicate an entire WordPress website and transfer all its data including databases, general settings, plugins, themes, content and widgets to another website.  We shall be using a free plugin called 'Duplicator' to do this.

The following steps shall be taken to achieve this:

  • Install and activate the duplicator plugin
  • Create a 'package' of the site we want to duplicate
  • Create an FTP account for the clone site
  • Create a database for the clone site
  • Transfer the package of the duplicated site to the clone site
  • Run the cloning process.

Hi there my name is Alexander Oni. I am a professional web developer living in the United States of America. I currently work for a small web development company where I build websites for clients using the latest in web technology.

I have been building websites for the past 7 years now and have been working exclusively with WordPress for almost 4 years. My love for web development and teaching people how to build websites drove me to make my Udemy course on web development.

I am also a cyber security expert and have a masters degree in Information Security.

I enjoy watching football, movies and playing chess.

Feel free to send me a message if you would like to know more.

Thank you for stopping by once again and I hope to hear from you soon.
