Is it possible to backup, move and restore a PHP designed site to a new Word Press site on another server using BackUp Buddy? If this is not possible suggestions as to the easiest way ro create a Builder Site from my original site would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

BackupBuddy will not generate a WordPress site from a php site. It will make a copy of an existing WordPress site, and allows you to restore and/or migrate that WordPress site as a WordPress site to another server.

Builder should allow you to build the structure of your site pretty quickly (depending although that does depend on the original site of course), and then it may be a matter of tweaking the styles. There is no automated process to do this though,

hope that clarifies,
