WP Staging for WordPress Migration & Cloning

This duplicator plugin allows you to create an staging or development environment in seconds*

It creates a clone of your website into a subfolder of your main WordPress installation including an entire copy of your database.

This sounds pretty simple and yes it is! All the hard time-consumptive database and file copying stuff including URL replacements is done in the background. The plugin even automatically does an entire search & replace of all links.

I created this plugin because all other solutions are way too complex, overloaded with dozens of options or having server requirements which are not available on most shared hosting solutions.

All these reasons prevent user from testing new plugins and updates first before installing them on their live website, so its time to release a plugin which has the potential to be merged into everyone´s wordpress workflow.

* Time of creation depends on size of your database and files.

WP Staging hilft Dir zu verhindern, dass Deine Webseite kaputt oder unerreichbar wird aufgrund des Installierens von ungetesteten Plugin Updates.

Note: WordPress 5.0 has been shipped with a new visual editor called Gutenberg. Use WP Staging to check if Gutenberg editor is working as intended on your website and that all used plugins are compatible with that new editor.

Ändere Deinen Workflow um Themes und Plugins zu aktualisieren.

  1. Use WP Staging to clone a production website for staging, testing or backup purposes
  2. Create a backup of your website
  3. Customize theme, configuration, and plugins or install new plugins
  4. Teste zunächst alles auf Deiner Staging Seite
  5. Everything running as intended? Start the migration and copy all modifications to your production site!

Why should I use a staging website?

Plugin updates and theme customizations should be tested on a staging platform first before they are done on your production website.
It’s recommended having the staging platform on the same server where the production website is located to use the same hardware and software environment for your test website and to catch all possible errors during testing.

Before you update a plugin or going to install a new one, it is highly recommended to check out the modifications on a clone of your production website.
This makes sure that any modifications work on your production website without throwing unexpected errors or preventing your site from loading. Better known as the „WordPress blank page error“.

Testing a plugin update before installing it in a live environment isn´t done very often by most users because existing staging solutions are too complex and need a lot of time to create a
an up-to-date copy of your website.

Some users are also afraid of installing plugins updates because they follow the rule „never touch a running system“ with having in mind that untested updates are increasing the risk of breaking their site.
This is one of the main reasons why WordPress installations are often outdated, not updated at all and insecure because of this non-update behavior.

It’s time to change this, so use „WP Staging“ for cloning and migration of WordPress websites

Can´t I just use my local wordpress development system like xampp / lampp for testing purposes?

You can test your website locally but if your local hardware and software environment is not a 100% exact clone of your production server there is NO guarantee that every aspect of your local copy is working on your production website exactly as you expect it.
There are some obvious things like differences in the config of PHP and the server you are running but even such non-obvious settings like the amount of ram or the CPU performance which can lead to unexpected results later on your production website.
There are dozens of other possible cause of failure which can not be handled well when you are testing your changes on a local platform only.

This is were WP Staging jumps in… Site cloning and staging site creation simplified!

Ich möchte nur die Datenbank von einer Installation auf die andere Übertragen.

If you want to migrate your local database to an already existing production site you can use a tool like WP Migrate DB.
WP Staging is only for creating a staging site with latest data from your production site. So it goes the opposite way of WP Migrate DB.
Both tools are excellent cooperating each other.

Was sind die Vorteile zu einem Plugin wie Duplicator?

At first, I really the Duplicator plugin. It is a great tool for migrating from a development site to production one or from production site to development one.
The downside is that Duplicator needs adjustments, manually interventions and requirements for this. Duplicator also needs some skills to be able to create a development/staging site, where WP Staging does not need more than a click from you.
However, Duplicator is best placed to be a tool for first-time creation of your production site. This is something where it is very handy and powerful.

So, if you have created a local or web-hosted development site and you need to migrate this site the first time to your production domain than you are doing nothing wrong with using
the Duplicator plugin! If you need all your latest production data like posts, updated plugins, theme data and styles in a testing environment than I recommend to use WP Staging instead!

I need your feedback

This plugin has been done in hundreds of hours to work on even the smallest shared web hosting package but I am limited in testing this only on a handful of the different server so I need your help:
Please open a support request and describe your problem exactly. In wp-content/wp-staging/logs you find extended logfiles. Have a look at them and let me know the error-thrown lines.

Rezensionen

This plugin worked flawlessly out of the box. Great for a developer to test major changes before implementing them.
August 18, 2019
An essential plugin if you want to try out WordPress 5.0 before switching. It took just a few minutes to get started and it works like a charm. Thanks a lot for this.

Initially, I was daunted by the prospect of setting up a staging site, but with WP Staging it's literally just one click and then some waiting. (Copying the files does seem to be quite a bit slower than with other staging solutions I've used.) No manual setup necessary. As a bonus, you can have multiple different staging sites at the same time--as far as I know, the only hard limit is the size of your FTP site. (The staging site exists as a subdomain of your main site, living in its own folder on your FTP site.) Another feature I like is that, if you want your staging site to reflect changes made to your live site, you can selectively update folders rather than needing to erase the sandbox and make a new one. FYI, to address one common question about this plugin, the entire staging site is password protected by default. (Use your wp-admin login.) To disable this (which is necessary if you want to third parties to be able to interact with the staging site, e.g., to run site speed tests, or to view the site as a non-admin), just disable the WP Staging plugin on the staging site. If you need to be able to push changes from your FTP site to your live one, it might be worth shelling out for the paid version of WP Staging or finding a different solution. I never actually tried pushing my changes, since the revisions I was testing were easy to recreate on the live site, but with the free version, pushing changes does seem to be a somewhat manual process--or at least not as easy as just clicking a button. (Then again, it might be easier than I'm thinking; as I said, I haven't actually tried it.) I just switched to a host that provides a staging feature, so I no longer need WP Staging, but before I go I wanted to make sure to leave a thank-you, since it's been such a great help.
