Can I use backup buddy to make a clone of a site and just give it digitally to my customers without having to set it up for them? I own wp twin, but than I have to do it myself or my customer must buy wp twin. I like to outsource the task to my customer and share a clone on my (secured membership) site.

Hi Dirk,

If you create a backup of a site with BackupBuddy and give them that backup .zip and an importbuddy.php file (along with the password you've set to run that importbuddy file of course) then they will be able to migrate/restore the site by running importbuddy. BackupBuddy can work doing that and some people do use it for that. If the unexpected and unfortunate happens and they run into issues with it, you'd have to post in the BackupBuddy support forums for them though since it is your account and they don't have access to that forum.

Welcome to the forums. Be sure to post your questions in the correct forum and don't forget about the new and improved search function located in the top right of the forum pages. The gear/wheel symbol next to the search box will give you more options for advanced searching. Thank you and have a nice day.
