FAQ & Features

See below why WP STAGING is used on more than 70.000 websites.

Where is the staging site located?
You can copy the staging site to a sub folder of your main site or to a complete custom path. It stays entirely on your server and none of your data will be transfered to any third parties. You can clone the production site to another database and even to the same database of the live site. In that case, all staging site database tables will be prefixed by wpstg_. This ensures that the live WordPress site never interferes with the staging site.
Can a customer make changes, and the agency or the developer copy them to the production site?
That's absolutely possible. Your client can modify plugins or posts and the admin can push over the content by using the pushing function.
Is the staging site indexed by Google, any SEO issues?
The staging site is not available to the public and needs authentication before it can be accessed. So there are no possible SEO issues here.
Will the plugin work on blogs hosted by WordPress.com?
WP STAGING works only on self-hosted websites and regular hosting providers. It does not work on wordpress.com hosted websites.
Can I push a staging site which has been created with the WP STAGING basic version?
Yes, just install WP STAGING | PRO! The free version will be deactivated and the staging site will be detected by WP STAGING | PRO automatically. Then you can push the existing staging site to the live site.
Do I need technical skills to use it?
There is no special knowledge needed to create a staging site. Just click on a button and the entire job will be done for you.
Can we push database selectively and skip WooCommerce transactions?
You can push specific database tables only and can exclude WooCommerce tables to prevent overwriting of these data on the production site. You can also push files only and omit database data. If you made changes in the _posts and _postmeta table of your staging site you need to export new orders first and import them to the staging site before doing the migration. Read more...
Can I backup my production website with WP STAGING?
Yes, you can backup all your sites with one click. You can select the entire site including the database or can differentiate between database, plugins, themes and media files. WP STAGING uses a very advanced and intelligent way for exporting data and is often much faster and reliable than other backup plugins.

Very soon you'll be able to schedule and plan automatic backups and to transfer your backups to FTP or cloud services.
Can I upgrade from a 1-site license plan to a higher one?
Sure, you can upgrade anytime and you pay only the difference amount between the smaller and the higher license.
GDPR & Privacy - Is data submitted to any 3rd parties like cloud servers?
WP STAGING does not use any external servers and does not submit any of your data to third parties. The complete cloning, migration and data processing is done on your servers only. Even we do not have access to any of your data.
