I'm interested in buying BackupBuddy, but I have a question. If I have an existing live site, and I transfer the site to a local server for development. Can I transfer the updates back to the live site? Or do I have to delete the whole site, drop tables, and reinstall from the backup?

Hi John,

BackupBuddy doesn't "merge" sites, migrating a site to a new location means migrating the site. So going from a dev location to the live site would be migrating the entire dev site (minus exclusions) to the new location.

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.
