Serverpress Desktopserver Clean Import

Featuring Clean Import

One of DesktopServer’s many features is its ability to take a site that was live and bring it down local by importing various archive formats like Duplicator, BackupBuddy, etc. But there are things that you might have on a live server that you don’t need locally. Things like caching, security entries in the .htaccess file and host-specific mu-plugins can create havoc when working locally.

With DesktopServer Clean Import, these files are backed up and deactivated so that when you’ve imported your site, you have a nice, clean environment optimized for local development. And it’s all automatic!
