Change your workflow of updating themes and plugins:

  1. Use WP STAGING to clone a production website for staging, testing, or backup purposes
  2. Create a backup of your website
  3. Customize the theme, configuration, update or install new plugins
  4. Test everything on your staging site and keep a backup of the original site
  5. If the staging site works 100%, start the migration and copy all updates to your production site!
  6. If something does not work as expected, restore the previous backup

Can´t I just use my local WordPress development system like xampp / lampp for testing and backup purposes?

You can always test your website locally, but if your local hardware and software environment is not a 100% exact clone of your production server, there is NO guarantee that every aspect of your local copy works on your production website exactly as you expect it.

There are noticeable differences like the PHP version or the server your website is running under. Still, even such non-obvious settings like the amount of RAM or the CPU performance can lead to unexpected results on your production website.

There are dozens of other reasons why a local test website will never mimic the production site server. That’s why a successful local test or backup site is no guarantee that the site will run in the production environment as expected.

That is where WP STAGING shows its strengths… Site cloning, backup, and staging site creation simplified. WordPress cloning on an enterprise-ish level!
