before I buy a have one question. I hope, it works as I think.

- one wordpress blog in the web,
      - install backupbuddy
      - with the plugin I can save to file (whole content of the blog)
      - download backup file

- second wordpress blog as local backup with clean install wordpress an plugin backupbuddy, no other content
      - open backupbuddy
      - restore from backup file
      - have local a 100% copy of the blog

Is backupbuddy works so??

Kind Regards Frank Weber (from Germany, sorry for the english)

Hi Frank

Thanks for your enquiry concerning BackupBuddy.

The steps you describe to create a backup of your site are correct with the addition that you also download (from within BackupBuddy) a standalone utility (called ImportBuddy) which is used for the migration.

On your new server there should be _no_ installation of WordPress as you are migrating the complete site from your original server, which includes the WordPress core installation as well, so that you get _exactly_ the same installation.

You upload the backup file and ImportBuddy to your new server and run the migration on your new server using ImportBuddy.

Please let us know if you have any additional question or clarification required in this respect, thanks.
