I would like to change hosting and need to keep the same url's content etc. I also want to change the theme and wish to use a rocket theme template for the new site. The best way for me to do this is use rocket themes rocket launcher that creates a wordpress installation. I only have access to the the existing sites wordpress admin panel. So can I migrate the entire site to a new clean install of wordpress using a different theme?

Hi Matt,

When BackupBuddy creates a backup of a site, it is all of the site's content and the database as it was when the backup was created. When migrating that backup it puts essentially a copy of that site at the destination location and migrates links and whatnot (is a separate unconnected site from the source site) in the database.

So BackupBuddy can be used to migrate to a new host and such, though using a different theme it won't do during the migration but is a change you can do on the site before or after.
