I gone through several plugin for migation and all were complicated and limited in features. This one was the ONLY AWESEOM one! Seriously. Simple, quick, worked like charm, no bs. This is THE one you need for migration or backup. Great job, thanks Webtoffee!

And that's just me. No but seriously, it was really really easy to save the site (from localhost) and export it. Everything worked first time. Well done.I tried a couple of others before this, and they were either difficult to start or restrictive in the file size.

I tried this plugin and followed the easy instructions, however it didn't work for me and caused a wordpress critical error. I couldn't then check the logs so had to reset my site.

Thanks for such a useful plugin !It's really easy to create site backups and migrate them to a different server.N.B. I have found that the best migration approach is to do it on a fresh WP installation - so far this way worked for me all the time.
